I moved Groove Agent samples and Hallion Samples from my C drive to my E drive. I did this because I have 9 gig of Steinberg content (Hallion, Groove Agent, Loop Mash etc) that was taking up precious C drive space when it should be on my E drive...sample drive. Perhaps a .msi file wasn't moved?
Someday I would like to do a fresh Cubase install including Hallion, LoopMash, Groove Agent etc but in the past it seems the installer does not allow me to choose where to place them. It automatically puts everything in your C drive. This would have been appropriate 20 years ago, but these days it would be nice to have a choice.
the installers do offer the choice to install the content (I have mine installed on an F: drive, Steinberg software as well as 3rd Party).
To move the content requires creating links to the new location in the existing one (and I wouldn't recommend it), but that won't guarantee that registry issues will not occur. And registry issues will most probably yield a 1603 .msi error code.
The best way to install your content in the E: drive is installing it there during the main installation.
When you install, registry entries pointing to each part of the installation are created, so if you install it in the desired location since the beginning, the registry entries will be correct and any future update will look for the content to be updated in the correct place.
CappacinoKid: Cubase should definitely reside on the C: drive (the application alone is not that big to require installation on a secondary drive), whereas the content can be installed on any drive.
