    Office needed to better support external HDD:
    To increase my computer performance I put "temporary files" on my
    external HDD ( Decreasing the load on my main HD )
    I have done so using the following technics:
    1. Set the location of Internet file cache to the external HD.
    2. Set the %TEMP% %TMP% of both system and user to the external HD.


    This soltion requir some improvment from the OS or OFFICE:
    Having alternative , default location on the primary partition in which
    the OS is
    installed. Having that will enable me to detach the external USB drive
    without
    having problems with applications.

    To correct myself:
    I have wrote:

    It should be:
    Having alternative , default location for the "temp" file which is used when
    the user setting does not works. Such default location should be on the same
    primary partition in which the OS is
