I recently installed the Memory Maps for Central England on my Desktop PC & realised that I now don't have any spare space on the C drive & Windows (XP) is complaining ! (the maps are nearly 1.5GB).

The Hard disc is divided into 2 partions to separate programmes & my personal data & there's a lot spare on the other partition.

Does anyone know if I can move the memory maps from their default installation location to somewhere else ?
If so, how ?

Thanks

You can move the map files to anywhere you want on the PC (or external HDD) once moved (use Windows Explorer to actually move the map folder in total), start up Memory Map and go to Map/ Map List now select "Refresh Map List" and click the "Add Foldr" button now point the map list browser at the new location where your maps are stored.
You could run the software with the maps on the supplied disks, but it is much slower when moving/ re-drawing the map. A HDD install offers the best performance - Mike

Mike,

thanks for the very quick reply. I've now successfully moved the map folder as you suggested & Windows is happy too !

I hadn't realised it would that easy.
Job done !

Thanks again,

Paul
