Move MailWasherPro folder from default location

Sat Mar 16, 2013 10:27 am

MWPro 5.0.

Filters and other data are located in C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\MailWasherPro, as by default.

I want to move this MailWasherPro folder to a new location on my drive so I can control backups... for example C:\Main\CustomPrograms\MailWasherPro.

Any way to do this and have MWP find this new location?

Thanks,

Steve

Instead of trying to moving the default location of the User Files, I prefer to synchronize them with a location on the D:\ drive. ;)

I appreciate your reply.

I assume you mean sync using a backup tool?

Yes I could do this but I'm not really too concerned about continuous mirroring, just using a daily discrete backup.

And wanted my MWP files in the same data location as all my other backed-up files.

This is the only application I use that stores needed data in these arcane labyrinth Windows app locations.

Thanks,

ATM, the V6 iteration of MWP is no longer being developed and I don't see that option happening — that's possible only with the latest V7 (check out the illustration at the following link):—
