After installation, you might want to move the large STEAM folder directory (containing all the sound files) to a secondary drive in order to free up space on your internal drive.

Locating STEAM

macOS 10.12 (or later)
Select the Go menu at the top of your screen while using the Finder and chose “Library” from the menu.

The macOS default location is here: Macintosh HD/ Users/ Username/ Library/ Application Support/ Spectrasonics/

Windows 7 (or later)
The ProgramData folder is a hidden folder by default on Windows, so you’ll need to “Show Hidden Files and Folders” in your Control Panel / Folder Options.

The Windows default location is here: C:\ProgramData\Spectrasonics\

Moving STEAM

  1. Copy your STEAM folder from its current location to the hard drive location of your choice. (This can be another drive partition, a secondary internal drive or an external hard drive such as an SSD, Thunderbolt, or USB hard drive, etc.).
  2. Once the copy is complete, confirm that both STEAM folders (original and copy) are the same size, then delete the original STEAM folder from the default location.
  3. Open Omnisphere and you will be prompted to locate the STEAM folder.
  4. Browse and select the new STEAM folder (you might see some error messages, but close these messages and continue to the final step). The link to the new location has now been created.
  5. Close and re-open Omnisphere for the changes to take effect.

NOTE: You can also see the Knowledgebase article HERE for some nifty animations that further explain the process.
