I've run out of space on my C drive and need to move my library to my E drive. I've read a few related posts on this forum but haven't found an answer. Can anyone suggest how I would do this?

You can use a symbolic link to map your E:\ProgramData\TechSmith to the one used by Camtasia C:\ProgramData\TechSmith.  

1) Move C:\ProgramData\TechSmith to E:\ProgramData\TechSmith where E: is your large drive
2) Open the command-line in Administrator mode
3) mklink /D "C:\ProgramData\TechSmith" "E:\ProgramData\TechSmith"
4) Make sure Users have the Write permission to E:\ProgramData\TechSmith in the directory Security settings
4) Start Camtasia and notice your library is now using E:\ through the symbolic link.
