How to specify data folder?

By default em Client is using C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\

but I need to use a different folder …

It is not possible …

That is a shame
nobody wants ~1GiB of data on their boot volume …

Unbelievable that in 2012 I am still stuck using Outlook as all the alternatives are hopelessly flawed! Something serious wrong with the world of software development … I guess the nerds aren’t as smart as they think

On your menu Tools -> Settings -> Storage. You can assign a different database under there.

This works if you follow this procedure:

  • create new folder
  • use tools / settings / storage and browse to the folder (you can’t type/paste the path, grrr)
  • shutdown em client
  • copy all the files EXCEPT settings.xml from C:\Users\blah\AppData\Roaming\ to the new folder
  • start em client

now remember to backup both folders …

I am sorry I did not read it carefully - I thought you posted one question twice so I answered this question…
My fault :frowning:

TNCS: Thank you!
