    Moving Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC from C drive to D drive

    davidg99510460 Level 1

      My computer has a small C drive and large D Drive. My two Adobe editing programs are on C. I would like to move them to my Data or D drive. Can I just make a folder and Move both programs, or should I delete both and reinstall both into the new Drive..

      Thanks for helping..

          OS=Windows?

          For most Windows users- software .exe programs must be installed on Drive C: (the OS drive). If there are work-arounds, I do not know of them.

          You can however store your Lightroom Catalog with its Preview cache folder, along with all your photo files on another connected internal or external drive.

          This is the way my system is working-  Programs installed on C: an SSD, Lr Catalog & Image files on D: drive (internal large spin drive).

            Thanks, I understand now...I had moved Photoshop to the D drive by just moving the folder. The program worked fine, but when I was in LR CC, it couldn't find the Photoshop program to send an edit....I had to move PS back to C...Thanks for the advise...David
