Program Paths


Recommended Posts

I am looking to maximize the SSD (C:) I believe having the actual CA program on the C: drive will work faster so that is ok, but I would like to know what folders I could move to the D: drive.


In the photo attached I have folders in the E: drive which I am going to move to D: as well. 


Any suggestions?

Consider moving your Library Locations in Windows 10 to D:\, I have been doing it for years now , this effects Chief too as it places it's Data Folder in My Documents.

moving your Pictures, Music, Videos etc will also save alot of space on C:\ if they are in the Default win10 Folders.


...... here is another post on doing that....

maybe things have changed but years ago tech support got very grumpy about my having moved the locations


they started to insist any issues I had were due to having moved the locations


you may want to discuss with tech support the best way to approach this issue

      Hi everyone, 
      Is it possible to create more then one new material at the time?
      I have in a folder filled with wood grain pictures (vertical & horizontal) and I would like to add them all to my library but doing it one by one will take forever... From what I see in the program, there doesn't seem to be a way yet. But I imagine or hope that someone found a way to do it.  I must not be the first user who wants to do that to save time. Any idea everyone?  Thank you.

      Is there an option to export an individual folder as opposed exporting the whole entire user library?

      Wondering if anyone with experience storing their Library folders in a Cloud format can share some insight.  Planning to upgrade to X10 soon and believe that would be the way to go.  I run Chief from multiple locations, home office PC, Laptop and a second license with a remote helper.  Ideally I would be able to access the same Library files and only have to update a single location.  I have a OneDrive account with plenty of Cloud storage space.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.
