    Default file locations

    Hi -

    I have changed the default location for all output and temp directories to my preferred location - this seems to work BUT StreamFab is still creating log and temp folders in \user\documents\DVDFab\StreamFab

    Am seeing \log, \RenderDump and \temp in this path. When I download content, files are being created in here. Some of which are open consantly so keep flagging errors with OneDrive. How to I change settings so that all StreamFab files are redirected somewhere else?

      This is a known "issue" that has been reported to devs, multiple times, for the past 6 months. Unfortunately, I don't see this changing any time soon

          Mona, what tfatman is referring to should be on everybody's log file that has already been sent in. Those default folders has always been working like that in C drive.

          You can put/load DVDdownloader/StreamFab program app to another drive that you want other then your C drive but the default folders for 'Log',' RenderDump' and 'temp' folders are still generated and used under this path.....C:\Users\XXX\Documents\DVDFab\StreamFab, in the 'temp' folder there are four more folders that are generated and used...'Cache', 'Record', 'Update', and 'You Tube' and also the 'Log' folder has active working folders/files in it.

          They're not big files but if you don't know that they are there it can add up to be a problem with some users as noted by using 'One Drive' for 'C'. What I do sometimes is go into 'File Explorer' right click on my C drive and do a 'Disk CleanUp' to get rid of the unwanted temp files that it generates, would be better if those files has to be used in the C drive that StreamFab wouldn't store them.

            Agreed, log files have already been sent in, and these really shouldn't be required.

            What's happened here is the system is relying on hard coded locations for certain files (log and cache), instead of placing them where directed to by the user. It's not a per-user situation. Perhaps it's a per-os situation (haven't played with it on Mac yet).

            This gets super ugly when dealing with OneDrive and two instances running at the same time (have the multiple pc license, since I'm frequently needing two or three networks of downloads going).

            Even if you only have one instance with OneDrive, it's still ugly, because OneDrive syncs everything in Documents (as it should) to the cloud. So , that cache file is being written to and synced continuously. Same with the log file. Just a really ugly situation.

            The purpose of the 'my documents' directory/folder/whateveryouwannacallit is to store documents, things which should not be modified continually. Not to store temporary things like caching and log files, which are, by nature, designed to be modified frequently.

            The purpose of having a setting to modify where those are placed is in order to allow users to move those, so they're not problematic, or so in some cases they don't fill up a user's drive

              Ah, thank you for helping me understand the problem. I will get the developer involved.
