I wish if there is a feature in Kiwix in which I can change the database directory, to move it from a drive to another. Especially when the drive it was installed on is full.

    Could somebody PLEASE change the bug summary to something descriptive, like "Change database directory"? Thanks!

    I think it would be great to have a "Directories tab" in preferences where you can choose directories of database, profile, temp file, etc... (use current dir, use system temp dir or specify dir..). In windows the profile is stored in "AppData\Roaming\www.kiwix.org\Kiwix".
    Thanks.

     
  • Yes, fixing issues related to storage/directory/move of content into Kiwix UI is my top priority for now.

  • Newly available in the oncoming 0.9rc3 release, a way to change your data directory (where all the big stuff is stored). I think this is a good solution for this feature request).
