Ok, I have Reason (10) on an external hard drive for convenience.

Every time I start the program, it copies my factory sound bank, any ideas why why?

Good question, but I don't know.

It just says "copying Reason soundbank"!!

I'm assuming you just copied the soundbank to your external hard drive and deleted from Windows drive? If so, that's the default behaviour of Reason:

Well, that should say enough. Installing Reason on an external disk isn't a very smart idea.

I install the program itself on my 500 GB SSD system boot drive (C:), allowing rack extensions and VSTs to live in their usual places. But I keep all my ReFills, sample libraries, project files, and saved WAVs onto my 7200rpm 2 TB D-drive (internal, not bootable). Not that anybody asked. :lol:

What you can do is let it install the files, then move the folders to external HDD and create symlinks to their new locations at original locations. That should do the trick.
