I\'m running out of disk space on the C:drive. I should have installed onto my D:drive as it is much larger. How can I make this software use the d:drive and move the data over?

Stop BOINC from processing.

Copy the whole BOINC folder to where you want to install on the other drive.

Do an uninstall of the BOINC software.

Download and reinstall BOINC over the new copy on the new drive, and allow processing to restart.

Also check how much disk space the project is using - if old models crashed out, they sometimes leave their remains on the disk.

Around 450MB per running coupled model, and (as far as I can recall) about a gig for a running sulphur model.
I'm a volunteer and my views are my own.
