I didn't have a whole lot of disk space to begin with.
My Movie Studio 18 Platinum productions used up heaps of that
This was all on my "C:" drive, which (if I understand things properly) gives Windows an even worse headache
My Common Experience typically goes something like this...
- Start a new project
- All is well, execution is really great
- Project grows
- New stuff takes a little longer; still works okay
- Project grows and grows and becomes more complex
- Computer system becomes quite slow
- I make that one "next development" in the project
- No more progress; status "Not Responding"
In an attempt to address this problem, I now have an external disk drive. Windows Explorer is showing 232 GB Available
- Can I safely just move the entire tree (of Movie Studio 18 Platinum work) to the external hard drive ?
- What settings do I change to put my data files on this external drive; i.e., how do I get Movie Studio 18 Platinum to keep his hands off the "C:" drive and do all his work on the "F:" drive ?
- For that matter, am I asking for something which is sensible and in the realm of possibility ?
- What other questions should I ask about all this ?
Perhaps I should ask: If you had a machine which slowed down logarithmically as your project grows, and you acquired an external disk drive with 232 GB, what would you do to let the application and the system software handle the next project ?
Hope I'm getting this biz right...
