    Hello to All,

    I have a new external SSD coming in & I want to move all of my NI libraries to it...The data is currently on my 2nd internal drive. Is it okay to move the entire folder from the internal drive to the external drive like the following instructions say?

    I assume any new installs could be properly directed by changing the locations in Native Access?

    Have a good one,
