Ok, I've reached the end of my workaround patience with CS5
Suite and Apple Sierra (OS10.12.3). I can't buy CS6 (not sure
that will be a good fix either). So if I go to the cloud, how is
the best way to preserve CS5 because it will be
wiped/overwritten from the CC version? I will need it as
1. Partition the new computer's hard drive and boot up from
there if needed? (2TB hard drive)
2. Copy it to an external drive partition? Slower USB or
Thunderbolt/Firewire speed, granted. (Not all of the ancillary
data will be there, but still on the computer hard drive?
3. Does it have to be bootable as a separate startup disk in
order to run efficiently?
4. Clone it? not done that before. Reading this article:
Question: I've not run software from a partition to work on
large files (appx 500MB). . However I want to set it up in the
beginning to where it's the most functional.
Any other recommendations?
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.
