Disk space for Kontakt 7

Hi.
At this moment I have installed Kontakt player 6 with various libraries, free and paid, 
most of them are installed on an external drive. 
I would like to purchase the full version of Kontakt 7 but my available space on the internal SSD is only 70Gb, 
and furthermore I don't want the installation to exceed 30Gb to guarantee sufficient free space on the disk. 
The question are: 
1 - when Kontakt 7 is installed, can I decide to install everything that does not concern the program on an external hd? 
2 - Can I gain more space by uninstalling Kontakt player 6? 
3 - Will switching from Player to full version import existing libraries automatically into the new version? 

Thanks everyone for your patience
Marco

    Kontakt 7 itself is only 523MB in size.

    For 1.: In case you mean libraries, then yes. It's recommended to have them stored on an external drive due to their sizes.

    For 2.: Kontakt 6 is slightly smaller in size (493MB). If you don't need it anymore, you can of course just uninstall it. Keep in mind, however, that you may still need it in case you have existing DAW projects using Kontakt 6. Read the FAQ for the reason why.

    For 3.: Yes.
