I could swear there was an article or forum post about this somewhere but I’m not finding it. Clearly my Google Fu is weak.
Halion, VST Sound, Padshop and Groove Agent content all live on my C drive in the C:\Users[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Content folder. It chews up close to 20 gigs and this is a small drive. I want to move it to a different location but none of my tricks are working.
- Using Regedit, I found the location, changed the path to point to a new folder tree for all for and started Cubase. When it didn’t work, I reverted to the original paths and started Cubase to make sure it all still worked.
- Following a forum post, I created shortcuts to the new locations with the exact same name as the original folders, and copied the shortcuts to the c:\users folder. When that didn’t work, I copied the content back and once again verified that Cubase still worked.
In both cases, I got error messages vstsound files weren’t found. There’s a locate button, which I used, but it still didn’t buy it. After selecting the file, I’d get a different error message for the same file, e.g. “could not create link for Drum Loop Expansion 01.vstsound.”
Perhaps there was an option when I installed but if so I missed it. Nonetheless, since many people use small SSDs for their boot drive, it seems like there should be some way of moving this content to a different location.
Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
