Chunks file filling up and stopping downloads

Postby JaySkulk » Thu Jan 09, 2020 12:11 am

Signors e signori, e madams ou madmoiselle,

Is it possible for me to move my chunks file on the C drive which has 23 G of space left to my external G drive which has 4.1 TB so that the chunks drive won't fill up while I am downloading?

If it is possible, tell me where the folder is that would allow me to make the changes so I can change the path to my external seagate.

Create a link to the external drive so that the C:\<Newsbin Path>\Chunks\ is linked to a folder on the external drive

mklink /D "Y:\Chunks\" "F:\Newsbin\Chunks\"

Y:\Chunks is the external drive, F:\Newsbin\Chunks is my data folder. ... -or-linux/

You'll probably have to exit Newsbin before you do this.

There's another option but it's not as simple as this one.
