install to other than c drive?

Is there a way to install the Canon printer software on other than the C drive?  I have a 256 GB SSD C drive and running out of space.  I am trying to move anything I can to the D drive which is 2 TB.  My printer is an older Pixma MG7120 and there is no option on the install for where to install it.

Greetings,

Yes, unfortunately you can't specify a different install partition or directory.

Outside the scope of the forum, but your issue is easy to solve.  

 

Buy a bigger SSD.

Use a back up or cloning software of your choice.  Macrium Reflect (free) works well.   

 

Will take you about 20 min start to finish.

Re: install to other than c drive?

Sounds simple enough.  Let's see, the system only takes one ssd drive.  The OS is on the C drive which is the SSD.  How do you transfer all of the old ssd drive data onto the bigger ssd drive when there is no where to install the new ssd while the old one is in there?
