I find that rather mind boggling if true. Our policy is to keep all data files on the corporate SAN because local PCs are not backed up. I suspect that is a common scenario. In some, more tightly regulated companies, it may not even be possible to store files locally.

I can understand network-based locations causing issues, but I have _never_ seen a problem where an executable (FrameMaker or otherwise!) is on one drive and the "data" files are on a separate drive _on the *same* system_. In fact, I do this right now - my C drive is the usual location for all executables (FrameMaker, Office, compilers, etc.) and my E drive contains all my other files (including the books and files I work on). And, I do not have any problems with this setup whatsoever. I am surprised that Adobe thinks that this would be a problem in any way! If really accurate, this would be a strange, and completely unacceptable, artificial constraint.
