Ableton on main drive and library's same or no?

im installing ableton on my iMacs main hard drive which is 500gigs. And the library packs that come with it are pretty big. Wanted to know if people use an external drive for these libraries or install everything on one hard drive? Thanks!

    We do recommend installing the application onto your main hard drive, but the library content ( except for the core library ) can basically reside in other drives without any known issues. 

    In case the external library resides in a network folder, we recommend turning syncing off for this folder while working with Live.
