With the advent of digital drives and cloud storage used in ever-increasing ways, our entire school will be issued laptops with 128GB storage. To overcome the issue of migrating from my previous 500GB hard drive, I purchased my own 256GB Transcend Digital Drive as expansion storage. Because the Finale program uses a lot of storage space, it would be very beneficial if FINALE COULD BE INSTALLED ON EXPANSION STORAGE such as my Transcend Digital Drive.

Dear Conrad:

Unfortunately neither Microsoft nor Apple would encourage us to configure installers as such. If you want to have a smaller footprint, you can install the Garritan (GIFF) samples to a remote drive. Since over 5 GB of the Finale installer is in the samples, you would see a dramatic change in the size of Finale on your smaller drive.
