    Even though I set my Preferences on Native Instrument Access for Applications to go to my internal system drive and and downloads and content to go to my external SSD, everything has gone to my system drive. My question is how can I copy the content of my Komplete files to my external SSD.

    Windows or Mac? Which Version?
    Libraries went to the system drive? Where to?

    They’re just the app files
    Normally the content is in the Mac shared folder
    Copy the shared folder to your external and set native access to it

    Thats what I get when Open Absynth 5 as an example. My Internal SSD drive had 87 gigs of free space before I started to download/install the Native Instruments. My external SSD had 1TB which I was hoping to store the contents/samples on. I had followed the Preferences options to save downloads and contents on my external SSD and the Applications on my internal system Mac drive, so Im confused to what has happened, but more importantly how to get the relevant content onto my external SSD.

    In native access goto preferences
    Where you set apps / download/ content/
    Set the shared folder to content

    You can keep the original shared folder , but if you want to clear space just delete the native folder in side it

    just relocate and point to the "new location". Native Access should then "get it" :)

    Yes... You have to Relocate each Library Folder individually for each instrument.
