Relocating the Data File

Postby DogSnake » Fri Jul 29, 2016 2:45 pm

I have relocated my NB Data File to another drive from the default location. All works as expected except NB continues to create a Newsbin folder in the default location. It contains 1 db3 file named "GuiItems". A same named file also exists in the new data folder location. Is there a way to not have the default location file or is this the way NB works?
Thanks

Guiitems always stays in the user tree so I know where it is. So, it sounds normal. All the other files can be in any folder/drive you designate.

It's where I keep backup copies of the configuration files among other things.
