Hello Jussi!

I'm still working on my new Windows 10 machine at home and installing Zeus and setting up the configuration that I had on my old X machine. I'm quite familiar with doing all that so that's not the problem.

My new machine has one of those fancy-schmancy flash-RAMy solid-state drives for C:. They are REALLY fast but do have the issue that there's a limited amount of writes that they can handle (granted it's in the petabyte range!) so I want to be careful not to put any directories there that I'll be writing to all the time.

I don't mind Zeus being installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Zeus because I don't expect that directory to have a whole lot of writes (just a lot of reads, well except for occasional Zeus updates). I went to a lot of trouble to set up a junction from my users directory on C: to D: but it's working so now C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Xidicone\Zeus points to D: which is pretty cool.

My concern is with the C:\ProgramData\Xidicone\Zeus directory. My understanding from checking out your forum (viewtopic.php?t=2719) is that this is just a temporary directory for an initial Zeus setup before it sets up the REAL configuration directory. Is this correct or does Zeus actually use the C:\ProgramData\Xidicone\Zeus directory?

Thank you,

Yes, that is correct.

Basically if the user folder does not exist then the user folder is created using that intermediate data folder.

But naturally if the user folder does exists then that folder is no longer required and is never used.

Cheers Jussi
