Hi

I just purchased a laptop with classic 128GB SSD C: and 1TB D: drive.

First venture into this.

So I know I have to install programs on D drive to keep space on C:, but after install on the D:, the soundbank went into C, can I move these on the D:.

I have downloded a rack extention to see where it goes, but I cant find it, and I cant seem to choose where to put them. is these a way to know if they are on the D: drive and if not, can I move them there.

Mike

You can use junctions to reroute data. Google hardlink!

I would move them to a drive with more space using junctions...in case you haven't done it yet:

Use the following for implementing a Junction-Point:

1. Copy "C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Propellerhead Software/RackExtensions" to the desired location, e.g. "F:\RackExtensions".
2. Rename
"C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Propellerhead Software/RackExtensions" to "C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Propellerhead Software/_RackExtensions".
3. Open a Commandline as Administrator (Start->Type "CMD"->Right Click->"Run as Administrator").
4. Enter the following command, then press Enter: cd "C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Propellerhead Software/"
5. Enter the following command, then press Enter: mklink /j RackExtensions F:\RackExtensions
6. Start Reason, if everything is running well, you may remove the backup (Step 2 "C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Propellerhead Software/_RackExtensions")

Please replace "F:\RackExtensions" with the desired location!

You could do but it won't work, you have to create a junction for it.


Step 4 and 5 can be merged as one step

instead of
4. Enter the following command, then press Enter: cd "C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Propellerhead Software/"
5. Enter the following command, then press Enter: mklink /j RackExtensions F:\RackExtensions

4. Enter the following command, then press Enter:
mklink /j "C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Propellerhead Software/RackExtensions" "F:\RackExtensions"

Make sure that Reason is NOT open.

1) Start explorer and copy this to the address bar %appdata%\Propellerhead Software

This will take you to the Propellerhead Software subdirectory..

2) Right click on the sub directory "RackExtensions" and select "Cut" navigate to where you want to copy the data to i.e. d:\, right click and select paste.

Then follow OldGoats instructions.

3) Open a Commandline as Administrator (Start->Type "CMD"->Right Click->"Run as Administrator").

4. Enter the following command, then press Enter:
mklink /j "%appdata%\RackExtensions" "D:\RackExtensions"

Note: replace YOURUSERNAME with your login name to Windows, and replace D:\ with the location to where you pasted the RE in step 2.
