Location Disk Catalog Files

Question

I would like my disk catalog files to be on my DATA drive so that it backs up with that drive. Is there a way to specify where those files will be located?

 

Thank you.

Thank you.

 

Would it be to much to ask what "disk catalog files" your talking about?

Sorry, I thought there was only one Disk Catalog function. One module of the program will catalog your DVD (and possible CD) disks to enable you to find out what is on each disk. Once cataloged, you can search the database and it will find the file you are looking for and tell you what disk it is on. The database for these files is stored in the Users area of the C:drive and I would like to relocate it to my D or DATA drive. I'm not sure this is possible and was just asking if anyone knew if it was. Thanks for trying to help.

I don't have 2009 loaded any more but if it's the same thing as in 2010 then I can't find way to change the path.

I looked under Tools on the Home page and that's where I find the entry that says Catalog Your Discs.

When you open that you get the Disc Indexer but I can't find an option anywhere to change the destination of the index files.

It's not in Creator 2011 Steve.

 

Jojoand, there's no setting that you can get at as a user to change the location of the gallery. If you want it in a different place you will need to grab your digital spanner and go under the hood to change the path of the gallery.

 

The path for the Disc Gallery Depot in Creator 2009 is set in an XML file that lives on my machine at:

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\RoxioCentralFx\RoxioCentralFx.exe_Url_kdmstruvhy1r1ymhraochmluywfxqplm\0.0.0.0\user.config

where USERNAME is the name of my account on my computer.

 

If you can find and edit that file, changing the value of the path C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\My Documents\My Disc Gallery to something different such as D:\My Disc Gallery will create a new gallery at that new location. It worked nicely when I prepared one earlier. :)

Brendan,

 

I'm impressed with your knowledge of Roxio! I think I found the file, but I could not find the line with the path you described below. Is there only one user.config file? The file I found was mostly filled with settings for audio and the like. I found few, if any path settings. But thanks for trying to help. Luckily it is not a big problem for me not to be able to relocate the files.

Hi,

 

Sorry to be so long getting back to you - been having a bit of trouble with earthquakes :)

 

There's only one User.Config file in the system. I've grabbed a screen clip of it rather than copying the code, because I think the coding might upset the IPS board's software.

 

Anyway, the clip starts after 12 lines, so the line you want [marked in red] is the 19th line. The Setting Name is "DiscGalleryDepotPath" and that marked line is the one you change. My account name on the computer is Administrator, so look for your account name where my clip says Administrator. Leave the parts inside the <> brackets intact, and change the path between them to wherever you want it to go.

Sorry about the earthquakes! Do you live in New Zealand? I hope you've had no damage.

 

I finally found the line, but it was much further down in my file. There were many other music settings values before it. I have not yet tried changing it but will report when I do. And thanks again.

I finally got around to trying the fix and it worked like a charm! Thanks again. On the computer where I actually wanted to change the location, the line was approximately where you indicated. On the laptop I was using when I responded earlier, it was in another position, but perhaps because I had added user settings.

Glad it worked well. Thanks for reporting back.

 

A lot of our city was flattened and my house is a mess, but no serious injuries so we're lucky.
