Adobe is installed on my C drive, my SSD, however it is only 100Gb in size and is now rather full.
Can I simply move the Adobe folders (CC and Lightroom) using copy and paste across to my internal drive which is 2TB in size, and the programme continue to operate correctly, or am I going to have to uninstall everything and re-install on the 2TB drive, including all associated files and libraries and plugins etc (nightmare to do time-wise probably)?
If I just drag and drop the folders (program files - 3.82GB, program files x86 - 286Mb, program data - 651Mb) will everything still work?
Thanks in advance.
No you can't do that, but I doubt that you need to.
What operating system are you using? If any version of Windows, install WinDirStat and run it on your boot drive. It produces a graphic showing the use of the drive in coloured blocks, as well as the file tree structured in order of size. Look for large blocks in the graphic and click on them. This will show you that block in the file structure at the top of the window. Then Google to see if you can move it.
This is my boot drive, and I can see I have got a bloody great Photoshop temp file! I must have been messing with my scratch space for some reason.
I also have a 5Gb Outlook pst file, and I thought I moved that to another drive, so I have some work to do.
You need to look for things like Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Bridge cache, iTunes backup... Most things are fair game, but don't mess with the Windows Page sys file.
Also get rid of hibernate. That can clear a ton of space right off the bat.
Thank you Trevor, all much appreciated.
