Changing default projects directory

Post by Trev-a » 14 Jul 2012 19:25

Is there a way to alter the default directory that FH useto store projects from C:UsersUsernameMy DocumentsFamily Historian Projects to, say, F:Family Historian Projects.

Having had Hard Drive failures in the past I try to always keep the operating system and programs entiely separate from data, preferably on different physical disks.

I am currently using V4 on Windows 7 and can find nothing in the menus to achieve this.

Any help would be apprecited.

Yes, use File > Project Window > More Tasks > Project List > Choose Location for Projects.
OR
In the File > Project Window click on the blue link next to Location: and select Choose Location.

If you click Help in the Project Window and follow the link to Features of the Project Window it is explained there.
