Windows 7: Moving User file to different hdd?

24 Dec 2013   #11

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

No worries mate.

You would install the program as usual on your C: drive, or another drive if given the option during the program's installation.

I was just referring to saving files in a library instead that you could set the library to have a default save folder location.

This way, if say program has an option to let you select where to save files to by default from the program, you could select a library to save to.

Thank you. I hope you have Happy Holidays as well.
