I recently installed C5 to run under my new C6 license (from a C4-C6 u/g), and will keep it installed after installing C6.
In addition to the main Cubase-5 installation folder, “C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 5”, there’s the folder named in the thread title, created when I ran the C5-trial installation program.
It looks to me like just an intermediate folder - it contains “Cubase_5_Trial_Start_Center.exe”, which I had to run to install C5. And, although it contains the sample files of HalionOne and a folder called “VST Sound”, with large files for LoopMash, Reverence and Groove Agent, it’s beginning to look like these might all be duplicated elsewhere (eg in “Documents and Settings”).
The folder takes up 1.92 GB of the adequate but not big C-drive (partition): so if it’s not needed, I’ll delete.
I suppose, if I deleted it, I could just re-create it by running the C5-trial installer again. Alternatively, I could copy it to a DVD before deleting it.
But can anyone tell me whether C5 could be compromised in any way if I simply deleted this folder?
