Power Tips - Omnisphere 2 - Moving the STEAM folder

Updated: Jun 1



This is a question that is asked weekly if not daily in my groups. This comes directly from the Omnisphere 2 manual which you can find here: https://support.spectrasonics.net/manual/Omnisphere2/get_started/page04.html

I have not added nor taken from the current manual listing and have provided it here as a convenience

GETTING STARTED - Moving The STEAM Directory

After installation, you can easily move the large STEAM directory containing all the sound files to a secondary drive if you wish to free up space on your original installation drive.

WINDOWS - MOVING THE STEAM DIRECTORY AFTER INSTALLATION


• Drag or copy the STEAM folder from your installation drive (C:\ProgramData\Spectrasonics) 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 a Firewire or USB2 hard drive, etc.

• Next, right-click the STEAM folder in the new location to create a “Shortcut To STEAM”.

• Next, copy the shortcut to C:\ProgramData\Spectrasonics.

• Finally, make certain to remove the “Shortcut To ” from the name (including removing the spaces), leaving the folder shortcut named STEAM

MAC OSX - MOVING THE STEAM DIRECTORY AFTER INSTALLATION


• Drag or copy the STEAM folder from your installation drive

(For Example: Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Spectrasonics)

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 a Firewire or USB2 hard drive, etc.

• Next, hold (Apple key and Option key) on the keyboard, click and drag the STEAM folder to the desktop to create an alias of the folder named STEAM.

• Next, move the STEAM alias from the desktop to Macintosh HD/Users/Username/Library/Application/Support/Spectrasonics
