Good Evening,

Hope somebody can help please, I'm trying to install eSound(like Spotify) to another drive other than "C" as it save all albums(media files) to the same drive in the Roaming folder and it eats up my storage space? There is no option in the installer to specify an alternative drive or alternative storage location for the library, but, I was hoping somebody on here, may have had a similar problem with a similar App and have a work around.

Thanks Rob

Usually the choices for things like downloads are done in a program after installation in its Options or Preferences. Installing a program used to control hardware frequently has to be on the same drive as the Operating System. Some programs have a choice to Custom install and specify a different drive than default. If limited space is an issue I move the saved files to another drive such as a USB Thumb drive for storage. Programs or Apps such as Windows Media Player or VLC can play their files from any drive, just have tell them where to look.

Try Funac's Application Mover. It can move many programs to a different drive, but not all.
