Change APPC log and APPM image directories #APCC


Carl Björk
 

Hi !
 
 
My imaging computer has a small 40GB main partition and +300GB data partition.
 
After 7 nights imaging:
  • APPC logs in C:\ProgramData\APCC\Logs consumes 3.5GB
  • APPM image files in C:\Users\...\Documents\Astro-Physics\APPM consumes 1.1GB
 
Those 4.6GB are too much for my small partition, is there anyway I can configure APPC/APPM to write those directly on my +300GB data partition ?
 
 
Thanks,
 
Cheers,
 
Carl

Hi Carl,

The log directories cannot be changed at this time.

BTW, you might try using a utilty like SyncBackPro, which can move the files to your other disk on a daily basis, or on command.

Hi Ray,

Many thanks!

Ok, no worries, that would be a convenient feature to have, even through regedit or .config files.

As a workaround, rather than syncing, I created a hard symlink (NTFS directory junction):

C:\ProgramData\Astro-Physics\APCC>mklink /J Logs D:\Logs\APCC
Junction created for Logs <<===>> D:\Logs\APCC

Cheers,

Carl
