Not enough storage on my drive...

Dear NI Community,


I have a small question. I have some Kontakt libraries that I would like to install. There are all on my SSD. But I need storage on my Mac to install them as well (I have about 80GB left).


The problem: I can't install some libraries that are like 30GB because I technically need them on my harddrive. But I can't delete anything else because I have a lot of "Other" (over 70GB that I can't delete).


I tried installing Native Access on my new Mac but that did not work out as well for some reason.


Could you maybe give me a tip on how to install my remaining banks on the SSD?


Any help is much appreciated!


Thank you in advance!


Greetings from Germany!

    Move your libraries to the new location, then update the settings in Native Access.

    1. Find the sound library or libraries you want to move, then cut and paste the content to the new location.
    2. Launch Native Access, find your product and click Installed Content. You should see a yellow exclamation point with the word Repair next to it.
    3. Click Repair, then on the next window, click Browse, select the new location (where the library is now) and click Relocate.
    4. Once the process is complete, go back to Installed Content. It should be OK.
    5.  In the rare case that you see "Demo" (or the "Repair" option again), just refresh (or, on some cases, restart) Native Access!
