Lightroom CC: Change local storage to other than system partition

I think a customer schould be able to change the partition for local storage.
Currently one cannot choose and has to use the system partition.

Not being able to select another partition/drive is a huge disadvantage to me.
One simple use case: Usually I have my system partition for the OS only and a different drive (or at least partition) for persistent data. In case of a non-recoverable system crash, my data is save and I can easily use it from a new or another system.

Also it is a good Idea in case one runs out of space...

Please add an option to choose the drive in Edit -> Preferences... -> Local Storage.

It's already there for local storage of originals, but not for the library itself. Don't worry about crashes. Your data are safer than you think, because they are in the cloud. If you have to start over after a crash, or because you start using a new computer, things couldn't be easier. No need for local backups, just install Lightroom CC, log in and everything magically comes back.
