Relocate Group cache folders

Post by Bacon1967 »

Hi
Like many people I now have an SSD disk, and I want to stop it from filling up. The default location for the NL Group Cache folders is %APPDATA%\Newsleecher.

without redirecting all my %APPDATA% folders is there a way of changing the group cache folder location?

Thanks

newsleecher.ini in the same folder as newsleecher.exe. If it doesn't exist, create it.

dataFolder=C:\Path\data
tempFolder=C:\Path\data\temp

OK
I put a newsleecher.ini
But now when I launch NL, I loose my parameters and preferences

How can I keep my parameters with the newsleecher.ini ?

Move the files from the original NewsLeecher AppData folder to the new paths you specified in the ini.
