No Modifications
There are NO modifications made on your system and you may copy the files to another partition if you then change all drive C:\ pointers in the init file and the shortcut to the new location of your desire. Removing the software simply can be done by putting the folder and all its contents into the trash.

You are advised to first test the software by having it in the original location on your C:\ drive to prevent that you forget to mutate some init setting and therefore it does not work.
