I need help understanding installation locations and space usage for Komplete within N.A.
In a nutshell ... How do I get more of Komplete onto external storage?
... I've recently purchased a Komplete Kontrol S88 controller, and yesterday I bought the Komplete 13 Ultimate bundle (an upgrade from Essentials). I thought that I'd be able to install most of the data for Komplete onto a new external SSD I purchased for that purpose. Yet I am finding that to be far from the case.
I have set the Library (in N.A. preferences) to the external SSD. But this seems to have made very little difference to how much of the data is stored internally.
I'd appreciate some help understanding why so much data goes onto the system disk, when I have the Library (in Native Access). For example ... The install of Action Strings indicates it requires 9.94 GB of storage. When I installed it just now, it took up 10.97 GB of space on my system SSD. I didn't watch to see if it took up any space on the external SSD. In theory it would not have, since it was only reported as needing 1GB less than what it installed internally.
I installed all the various "Keys" instruments earlier this evening, and these took approximately 80GB on my internal drive, nearly causing my computer to crash due to a full system drive. As modern Apple computers have fixed SSD drives (which can't be upgraded to larger sizes), am I to conclude that I can not install the bulk of Komplete Ultimate, irrespective of the fact I purchased a 1TB external SSD specially for it to live on?
To me that seems a bit absurd. Most Apple computers (and I suspect many modern Windows computers) don't have expandable storage, and the storage they do have comes at a hefty price.
Please tell me there's some way to make Komplete take up less internal storage. Currently I'm faced with having to buy a new computer, with at least 1.5TB of internal storage just to use Komplete. That makes no sense to me. 😫
