Moving "Data Folder" ?

Postby mpoirier » Mon May 23, 2011 11:22 am

Hello,

Is it possible to set the Data Folder on another drive ( my data drive ) ?

I do this with Firefox and Thunderbird and find this very useful...

Thanks,

Michel

Yes.

Look in the Advanced chapter of the User Guide for instructions on how to do this as it cannot be done through the Newsbin GUI.
The Newsbin Online documentation
The Usenettools for tutorials, useful information and links

Thanks,

I created a shortcut to the modified NBI file ( DataPath=D:\Michel\Newsbin\ ) in the new folder and it works fine now.
