Hi folks-

I just installed BOINC and it's running fine. My C: drive is nearly full, but I have another hard drive (20 gig) which is nearly empty, that BOINC would be most welcome to use, at least until I have some reason to start filling it with other stuff. Is there any way I can point the software to the empty hard drive.

I run ubuntu 9.04 on an old, slow p3 x86 dell.

Thanks.

Unfortunately there is no easy, intuitive way to change drives from within the program. The drive used can only be specified during program installation, so you'd have to uninstall BOINC, move the remaining data over to the new drive and then re-install BOINC and point it to the new data on the new drive.
