The core of CC, namely the desktop application must be installed on the primary drive of the machine. Beyond that you can specify an alternate location for the applications to be installed.
To change Install Location for Applications
With the CC application opened, choose the little gear icon in the upper right corner and then choose Preferences. In the Preferences screen select Creative Cloud and then look for the Install Location drop down
I changed the install location to a separate hard drive (G:) for both the app installation and Adobe files, but Creative Cloud keeps trying to install Photoshop on my C: drive. (Which is a SSD without enough space.) Is this a common problem? I've already uninstalled Creative Cloud twice, restarted my PC a bunch of times. I'm out of ideas...
I could be wrong, but my understanding is that no Adobe program will install to an external drive that may be disconnected, since doing so would REALLY mess up the program registration system
i am butting in here.. i am running a 2012 3.2Ghz iMac at lightning speed - well almost. Absolutely no problem. My internals drive is however kept to a minimum. I have 750GB free of 1TB. I do have 24GB RAM but it made very little difference to the performance as far as processing goes.
May I suggest you move all work files onto an external and make sure your boot drive is as free as possible so the system can run around with glee. Systems like wide open spaces
haha i would but it is all window files that it "needs"
