CAN USER LIBRARY BE IN A CUSTOM FOLDER?

Post by tintala » Thu Mar 28, 2013 5:06 am

In Live 9, in preferences , under "library: tab, Browser Behavior, Location of User library,

Can I change the location of my user library and point to the location of user library AND factory packs ,, and NOT break any dependancies ?

I really want my HUGE user library on another HD as it's filling up my main drive quick!.. it appears it might work, I just don't want to severely screw this up.!
thanks

I *think* that's what the Add Folder option is for. You should be able to add your HUGE folder there and it should index it there, even if it is on a seperate drive.

But (as the multiple threads on this indicates) there may be issues there

Hi,

File references to the User Library or Packs won't breack even if you change their respective locations.
