Hi, 

I have installed Kaspersky Total Security 2021 and it fills up my system partition.
Is it possible to install it on another partition?

Tks.

Hmm

Save your license data (paper or in e-mail or where you have it) you will need later for activation.


1. Uninstall kaspersky after that look into PROGRAM DATA and delete Kaspersky folder (if it is still there), also look into PROGRAM FILES (do same delete folder kaspersky if it is still there)

2.Restart PC (important) 

3.Clear temp files → https://support.kaspersky.com/common/windows/1161

4.Download and install newest version from website (21.2.16.590), update manually database and restart pc.

​​​​​​​*Also make you sure that you have disabled TRACES.

Hi,

No, this does not solve the problem.
I installed Kaspersky Total Security 2021 only yesterday.
I had 30GB of free space left on the system partition and I only have 4GB left after the installation and a full scan.
