I really want to be able to move/install the Bitwig Factory Content installed with the Package Manager to a different Harddrive. So far I haven't found a way to do this. My C: Drive (SSD) is reserved for Software. For Samples etc. I have a dedicated drive.

Thanks for any hint,

Couldn't find the option either. MKLINKed (CMD) the C:\Users\addyourusernamehere\AppData\Local\Bitwig Studio\installed-packages to the desired destination. This always works.

The release version offers a custom location as an option in the Content Manager, so it's no longer a problem.

If you're running Linux or MacOS, you can use symbolical links to point your packs to another directory. This works rather transparent and allows for removal and reattachment of storage devices and other fancy unctions, but needs you to do some console magic and a little understanding of your filesystem structure. Here's a good explanation on how to create and understand symlinks:

You can e.g. symlink an external harddrive into your BWS library folder. On Linux this usually boils down to: $ ln -s /media/removable ~/Bitwig\ Studio/Library/Removable

Have fun!
