How do I move Komplete 10 from external drive to internal drive

Im trying to move my sample libraries and library receipts from my lacie external disc drive to my samsung SSD internal hard drive on my macbook

I tried to simply move it by drag and drop(which took 2 hours to copy everything over) but when i disconnect my lacie drive and pull up an existing session it cannot find the files and even when I search it won't find them so i ended up deleting the files from my SSD and kept the files on my external drive to start from scratch but now i'm a bit lost

starting to think i'd need to uninstall komplete 10 totally and install on my SSD, but I don't know if i'd need a new serial number to do that it i cannot release the existing one and just use it on my new hard drive

reason why i'm doing this is when I use multiple instances of komplete 10 or have a session with a lot of tracks it glitches and stutters so bad I can't even properly work on my sessions

I installed on the external hard disc drive in the first place because this was before I upgraded my internal drive to an SSD, i'm thinking maybe if I install komplete 10 on my SSD this might solve the issue, then again i'm using an ancient macbook (from mid 2010) I do have 16gb of ram upgraded so I feel it shouldnt be stuttering when multiple tracks are in use but I should mention my cpu is only 2.4ghz which could be the issue wondering if its worth the hassle to reinstall on the SSD, let me know if anyone has a good suggestion or if I got the right idea

    Hi Sunken0887, I just re-installed all my NI on a new Mac Studio. I simply went to NI Access and redownloaded all. It took quite a while, perhaps a day, but everything works. You will also be sure that you will have the most current. I was going from an older Mac Pro (Intel) to M2 Studio, so the most current versions was best path IMO.

    I have a Physical boxed version of komplete 10 that comes with the hard drive and usb cable, should I just install that onto my SSD? I dont think NI Access would have it for me to download but I could be wrong, and thanks for the answer

    After you transferred the library, did you go in Native Access and redirect it to the new location? All of your installed item will show a repair button on the right. At the top you should get a "relocate all" option and if you hover your mouse over each repair button, you should get a "repocate" option which you can redirect each plugin to the corresponding new library location.
