Microsoft Office 2007 install to another drive?
I am running out of space on my boot drive. Is it possible to install MS Office 2007 to another drive on my computer? I realize I may need to uninstall it first and I'm okay with that if it can be installed on a non-bootable drive. I have always installed it to C drive but I'm pretty sure in the install it asks where to put it. Can someone confirm?

You should not have any issues as long as this other drive is an internal drive. There are known issues with the installing of programs to external drives.

Thanks for the reply; that is what I was hoping...it would go to my D drive which is partitioned off of C.

D partition has 18.7gb which is half capacity; it does not contain any system recover files that I am aware of.

I recently upgraded from XP to 2007 and updates were failing because of available disc space. Do those updates take up additional space on my drive with each and every single one of them? It sure seems like it does and that's why I've got trouble.

Yes, updates do seem to take up more space.

18 GB is really not much in today's world of hard drives.
I would look into getting a larger drive to replace the current one, or add as another drive.

You have not stated what spec's of your system are, so having such a small drive, I would say that it is some what older.
Might be time for a hardware upgrade.
