Author Topic: Best strategy to minimize windows corruption on "improper" shutdowns?  (Read 3380 times)

I was wondering if we could configure signageplayer somehow to decide where all the disk writes (and reads) will happen to. This way, I could direct them to a different partition from the main windows one in the hard drive in order to minimize the chances of corruption, etc.

I thought about using a virtual drive and safe writing modes, but I will also be updating the windows installation itself often with new graphics drivers, adobe runtimes or player releases, not to mention show design updates, so for the time being I think I'll just deploy a regular windows installation on the SSD drive, but it could potentitally halp to have the signageplayer software be configured to make all writes to a different (i.e. "D:") drive or partition. This shouldn't be too hard to configure, at least deciding where the cache directory should reside, and possibly a good feature for other more complex installations with caches, flash drives, removable media or complex networks ...

There is no way to change local cache dir in the software, it is always under Users/USER_NAME/.../apps/roaming
Maybe there is way to do it in the level of the OS, but I don't think there is.
