Recently wondered why I had no room left on my SSD C drive, Well its cause I went and bought HALion (which I must say I’m immensely pleased with) However, do they let you choose a location for your content no they just dump it on the C drive. Anyhow whinge over here’s how to fix it.
Identify a location you would prefer your content on, then browse to C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Content\VST Sound (its where most of it was on my system anyway and BTW this is also Cubase’s content files as well)
Select all the content files, and copy them to your chosen location.
Next in your chosen location select all the files again and right click and create shortcuts.
sort the files by type then select all the shortcuts, this time cut them and paste them into the folder on your C drive where you got them from in the first place.
Then in this folder again sort by type then delete all the original content.
Hey presto you have just reclaimed a wodge of valuable SSD space and Cubase and HALion should not even notice the difference.
One more thing beware of updates as occasionally they may change one of the .vstsound files, would recommend you check for changes after any installs, suspect Steiny probably wouldn’t recommend this as they think we are stupid… Otherwise great product guys
Hope it helps…
