I like ANKI, but I have thousands of cards now and I am still needing them (I guess I am a slow learner). So, since it seems to slow as more and more is added, my questions are 1) can I set up 2 ANKI programs on my laptop and 2) if not on the same drive, I have a portable drive that I can attach so can I set it up on there?
As I said, I like the program, but I have no interest in delving into the deep and meaningfuls of how to use it to the nth degree. I am too busy using it to learn a language and spending time on other stuff ... to me .... is a waste. So, a simple answer please if anybody is willing to help. Can I set up a second ANKI on my computer or portable hard drive and if so, how?

    @Steve: You probably can but just installing them in didn't folder locations. I've never tried. Someone else might jump in with a better answer. That said, you didn't go into detail about the specific needs, but maybe creating two profiles might be an easier way to accomplish what you want. I have six profiles on each of my computers, one for each family member. It only requires one install of Anki.
