Can I change where user files are stored?

Document ID: DQ007
Relevant to following products: WorkOut 2.0 Manta
Document description: How To: Change the location of user files…

You can specify the location of data files from File | Options | Data in the Organiser application.  The Parent directory for data files edit box shows the location of the parent directory of all data files.  All data files will be stored in sub-directories of the parent directory.  (The My Assays directory will be created and this will contain Microplate Layouts, Read Configurations, Reports, Results, Protocols)

This default parent directory is the users My Documents directory.

The path can be changed to a new location (including a network drive).  The path entered must either be that of an existing directory, or else the child of an existing directory. If a new Parent directory path is specified, sub-directories will be created in the specified directory for the various folders.
