Choose install drive?

Hello, is there an option to choose which drive this program is installed to? I can't seem to find the option, and it is larger than the SSD it keeps trying to install itself on.

    Hi @Dustbina

     

    Choosing installation folder is currently not available. The product will install to under %PROGRAMFILES% folder in the computer. It will also use some disk space from %PROGRAMDATA%.

    Hello,

     

    I able to think that even if it available technical option with Home Solutions -> this is not documented feature. By default, F-Secure do use 'system' drive.

     

    Maybe possible to contact direct F-Secure Support Channels (chat as example):
    https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/home_global/contact-support

    And ask them about ability to perform installation for another drive (based on limitations with space under system drive) with your certain situation. Probably it can be 'potentially' possible.

     

    // by the way - most part of installation can be about signatures/databases. and F-Secure can be with usage system's drive folders anyway. which maybe also possible to tweak with some 'custom' steps (even this is not likely 'friendly' step).

     

    Thanks!
