    PS CS4 installer wiped out files

    regnar789978

      I just installed PS CS4 to my new Windows 10 PC.  I chose a different location than the default C: install location.  Right after the installer reported success, my PC froze – had to restart using Ctrl-Alt-Del.  When I looked at the install folder, the new PS folders were there, but all the other files and folders in it were gone.  I had to re-install seven programs.  PS appears to be working properly.

       

      Just thought I’d post my experience as a warning to anyone attempting anything similar.  There’s always the chance that old software might not work on a new PC, but I’ve never seen an installer do anything this destructive to existing files.
