Is there a way to change the working folder "C:\ProgramData\BOINC" and move it to another drive?
I have two hard disks and I want Charity Engine to use my secondary hard disk and leave the primary one for my work.
Ok if anyone is interested, here is how I managed to do it by:
- Shut down charity engine completely.
- Copy BOINC folder to another place.
- Delete the original BOINC folder.
- Create a symbolic link in the original folder path pointing to the new place.
Right now whenever a read or write request for "BOINC" folder or its files it will be redirected to the new path on the secondary hard disk
Hi Hisham and anyone else interested,
There is an easier way to install in the non default drive. It uses the base program BOINC which Charity Engine is built upon instead of our branded client.
