Hi all, I want to know whether it is possible to change the locations of the ChessBase folder in My Documents to another directory, without junctions/symlinks.
Thanks!

you can on installation choose another destination but there will be a sort of instruction folder in my documents, if you just cut and past it will create another chessbase folder.

Hmm, I just want my tablebases + books on my SSD, not sure if it makes any difference though lol. Atm I am using a NTFS file system junction to put my docs on a 2nd HDD, as they take up a lot of room and my SSD is very small.

tablebase can go anywhere you want (i use an external hd for the 6 man) you also can put books where you like, no need to put them in the documents folder or to move it, as you can load book from anywhere in the comp/external drive without any problem.
