I’m about to install Cubase 9 Pro
I have two hard drives:
- C: Drive - a 128GB SSD with 85GB of remaining space (after Windows 10 install)
- F: Drive - a 3TB HDD with 2.7TB of remaining space
I want to limit what goes on the SSD so it won’t start slowing down (which will be at around 75% full).
What components of Cubase (if any) can I install on the larger SSD? Can I install all of Cubase and its plugins on the SSD?
I’ve attached a screenshot of the installation page and all of the programs Cubase wants to install - 15GB in total! Even at this early stage of the installation (having just opened the .Exe file) my C: drive (AppData, Program Files and Documents) has automatically been populated with loads of filepaths for the program files Cubase is about to copy over from the installation files.
This suggests I shouldn’t interfere and should just let Cubase install everything on the SSD. Will it create issues down the line if I tried to install and save the plugins on the HDD? Which of the packages in the attached screenshot are just files (not programs) which I could install on the HDD?
Further to this, I have other plugins that I want to install on this PC. Can I save them on the HDD or will Cubase have trouble finding them quickly?
Many thanks in advance!
