Install Vst Plugin on external Hard drive

Hi, I normally keep all my music software programs on one of three external hard drives , that is until I installed the element software.After Installation of all the MPC software I was prompted to install the 64 bi plugin into a default Steinberg folder. which i declined to to do and instead installed it into my personal vst folder on a external drive. after unlocking in standalone mode I attempted to open in FL Studio 11 and got a message saying I had to unlock in standalone. I Googled this problem and was led to this site where someone suggested that the plugin needs to be in its default folder and low and behold this worked. Unfortunately I have over 50 gig worth of vst's and I don't wish to have all of these files on my C:\ drive. Any help. PS is this issue the the same with MPC Studio.Thanks

    The MPC Factory Content can be moved to an external hard drive and accessed through the File Browser of the MPC Software. That content is found in the following folder:
