Default Installing Edius 7

Hello Everyone,

How do I install Edius 7 on a drive other than my C drive. Whenever I start installation it does not give me the option of choosing the drive I want to install it on. How do I install it on an alternate drive?
Thank you.

It is recommended that EDIUS is installed on your C drive. You can run into issues when you use a different drive.

My C drive is at capacity and two tech people strongly recommended any future software be installed on another internal drive.

Can you tell me how to custom install Edius 7 on another internal drive?

Thank you.

Take an image of your C: drive. Fit a larger drive and restore the image you have just made. Install Edius 7. This I suspect will be your safest option.

Remember you still have your original disc as insurance.

I'm not sure what you mean by take an image. Are you saying backup the contents on my C drive and restore it to another internal drive? What software would I use to do this? How reliable is this method?

Also, most programs allow you to custom install on another drive. Does Edius allow this?

Thank you.

Windows has a built in 'Backup 7 Restore' tool found in the control panel. Likewise Macrium Reflect ( free). Both allow you to build a rescue disk so that you can boot without having a loaded system disk installed.

Take an image of your existing C: drive. Remove your current C: drive from your machine and replace it with a larger C: disk. Use the rescue disk to boot your pc. Restore the image you made earlier. Check your new larger hard drive boots. Install E7.

If you are not sure what you are doing 'google' and read up. It's easier than editing.

An surprised your C: drive is full. It should only hold programs and not be used for storing video clips

Why are you simply not listening to good advice?

The C drive should ideally not be more then 80% full. It should only hold the operating system and programmes. You should have additional hard drive(s) for media.

What are your system specs?

"My C drive is at capacity and two tech people strongly recommended any future software be installed on another internal drive."

The advice given by the forum respondents above is what you should heed.

If your C drive is at full capacity, that is your first mistake, it should never be more than 70% to 80% for proper operation.

Never have your programs and data on the same drive, I assume you have, so that is mistake number 2

If you hag two tech people tell you to put programs on another drive, ask them how to do it.

From my experience, some programs definitely require/demand that they be installed on the C drive for hassle free operation.

Your choice, make your decision
