    I have a new computer, an MSI GT80 i-5700HQ. It had a 250gb SSD (local disk C: ) with the operating system and all other software. I just installed a 250gb WD Blue SSD. I want to install AutoCAD on the computer. The C drive has 223gb free. AutoCAD recommends 40gb of disk space. There is enough on the C drive, but I think I'd like AutoCAD installed on the new and empty SSD. To be candid, I have no idea of the ramifications of installing it on one drive or the other. Can someone kindly advise me on whether I can indeed install it on either drive and perhaps indicate the advantages or disadvantages of the choice?

    You can install a program on a different drive just fine. There won’t be any sort of issues in doing this.

    I agree you can install running software on another drive without issue you can't install Windows 10 on any drive other then C: because of programming. Just remember if you change drive that drive must always be the drive label to point the Icon to the right location.
