Download Assistant - Target for Folders

Hi, this might be dumb questions but will give it a go anyway.

I have managed to install the download assistant and am downloading the V11 pro files. I started to hit the download button for each individual file then after about 20 mins realized that I had set the target for the files to my C:Users\Downloads\Steinberg drive. This had only about 16Gb of space free which is now filling up.

Am I supposed to direct the files temporarily to a different drive with loads of capacity, save the docs and then install from there? Will all the files/utilities etc be re-routed correctly from there?

I have been in to my 'C drive Steinberg folder to move things away to create capacity but I am not afraid I will have files and folders scattered about the pc?

Any thoughts?


This is just the download folder, so the installers will be downloaded to the folder you specify here. It’s not about the installation folder. The installation folder will be chosen while the installation process.

Do yes, you can choose any folder here.

Thanks Martin, sorted now. A re-install of windows gave me all the space I needed anyway.


If what you’re saying is true then I can change the target folder in the Steinberg Download Assistant as often as I want, to download things to different locations depending on what they are? Is that correct?


Yes, you can. But as I said, this is just the download folder. After downloading it might by installed to totally different folder. Speaking about the content, you can change the installed folder in the Steinberg Library Manager.

But keep in mind even if you leave the Download Location the same for every product the Download Assistant will create unique sub-folders for each product. So there is no real need to separate them manually.
