Hi. You posted your question in the non-technical Lounge forum, which is where you can connect with your peers for conversations that don't directly relate to product help and support.
Let us know what application you are asking about (for example, Photoshop, Premiere, Captivate), and we’ll move your question to the appropriate forum so that you can get the answer you are looking for.
P.S. For a list of all available product forums, see https://forums.adobe.com/welcome/
Primarily Photoshop, but I've got a fair amount of Illustrator files too. Appreciate the help. Thanks
[Mod note: moving this thread to the Photoshop forum for now]
All related system assets (including presets) for Photoshop have to be stored on the same HD as the application.
I would recommend moving files and folders to your storage drive and keep your applications only on the SSD.
I'm a bit confused. I keep my project files on the storage drives, but I'm talking about things like patterns, brushes, materials, shapes and the like. It doesn't take long for image heavy fancy presets to clog up the drive.
Items you create like custom brushes, swatches, etc. can be stored in whatever folder you designate.
You would load them using the panel menu.
However there is no way to change the default location in PS.
If you create a preset, you would have to save it to your personal folder location.
Other presets like Tools, Render Settings, Image Size, etc. should stay in the Application folder.
