Hi I have started the Jaikoz app from my portable USB harddrive, but it still seems to store files and directories on the local %USERPROFILE% system.

Is there a file that can be editied to redirect the user data? It created the JaikozDB on the root of the USB drive, but I not sure where it's reading or store the user settings?

I have a portable Java JRE in a common directory.

The main file that is stored per user is the settings.jai file , because it is normal to store preferences per user, so two users on the same computer can use Jaikoz with their own preferences.

But it is on my TODO list to let you override the location so you can store everything on a portable drive. At the moment you can only set the location of the database (In Preferences:General:Database:Database Folder) , although this can get large so actually this isn't well suited to storing on a USB stick unless it is large capacity.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I agree the flash USB drive does not need anymore read and writes than it can handle or a hugh database. I plan on moving to a portable harddrive connected via USB 3.0 or firewire.

I have been a registered user for years now and appreicate the hard work and constant feature development.

How would one make a donation to your project without the additional licence being sent?
