Hi gang.

I installed all of BIAB 2016 from USB drive to C:\BB.

Now I'm thinking of keeping RT & Drums on the USB drive.

Q1: do I have to uninstall BB and deactivate?
Q2: or can I just delete RT/Drums and point them to USB.

Silly question?? Well.. I don't want to screw anything up.

Thanks
DE

Choice 2 is OK. The activation is by machine. That would not change.

You could erase all the files in /RealTracks and /Drums, but don't erase the folders themselves. BIAB writes a small text file into these two folders telling the system the location of the files.

Matt: hope you see this.

Short story, something happened and all of C:\BB had to be removed.
Needed to reinstall 2015 from the USB drive to C:|BB using Option 2 leaving RT / Drums on USB drive. Before doing 2016.

Checked C:\BB and found RT folder empty but RT/DEMOS full and Drums folder empty but DRUMS/DEMO full. Settings were made in BB to point to the USB drive.

So?? why am I seeing the DEMOS in C:\BB ?? and can I remove them ??

Thanks for your time.

I recommend you let PG Music Support remote connect to solve this one.
