The disk that the BOINC Manager is utilizing is my C drive. It is quite small. I have a big fat D drive that I'd like to use instead, but I just don't see how. Any ideas?

It works fine with me on both of my machines!

You can copy the whole directory, so you won't loose any WUs, but you have to reinstall it nevertheless, windoze doesn't like it otherwise ;)

Thanks Saenger, I thought it would work for him.....

He will probably ask how to do it...

Thanks!

No thanks! I like to keep operating systems (and apps, when possible) on small drives and portable data and scratch on big drives.

Thanks again.

That's sufficient. Thanks for the prompt responses, folks.
