Hello,

how can I change this folder location to move files into another drive?

Just move this folder to another drive and set up a directory junction to it from the old path.

One of them were in use by a running Visual Studio when you were installing the latest ReSharper, so it had to create a new one side-by-side. The older should be removed when you install a new version or do a repair. You can delete whichever one is older.

Hello a-man!

 

Thank you for contacting us.

This is the recommended way of installation because it does not require administrative permissions, it allows automatic updates, etc. 

However there's option to install ReSharper in All users mode, please refer to the following help article - https://www.jetbrains.com/help/resharper/Installation_Guide.html#admin

Thank you.

Please, answer, is it possible to delete or to move this folder? It eats much space on my system drive.

"%LocalAppData%\JetBrains\Installations" folder contains all ReSharper binaries, so if you remove that ReSharper won't work at all.

How to set Resharper store files in another folder, not in %LocalAppData%\JetBrains. It consumes 5GB what is very high for small system SSD, I constantly get out of space. I'd like to move this folder with content to another drive.
