On my newly installed WIn 10, I moved my documents, Public. Pics and Video to a different drive by creating Links.
For info I did this by following online instructions that means from an administrative command prompt
robocopy /MIR %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Users\Joe\Documents D:\Documents
Then booted into safe mode
Then from an administrative command prompt
rmdir /s /q %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Users\Joe\Documents
mklink /D %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Users\Joe\Documents D:\Documents
This works fine. If I or any other program creates something in C:\Users\Joe\Documents, it actually puts in in D\ Documents
But having an odd one with Cubase, probably something I’ve done.
If I create a new project and prompt for project location, it brings up the “Select Project Folder” window, showing the libraries for example
and I click on Documents, go into “Cubase Projects” and I create a new folder for my project.
Once the project window appears, I go File, Save As and save it the same name as I called the New Folder.
In the file browser window that appears, it’s saving it to
And sure enough, if I use windows file explorer and look in the D:\Documents\Cubase Projects\ folder, the file is correctly there.
That’s all totally fine.
If I start Cubase, or close and reopen the project, it brings up the explorer window that’s looking in
And while it’s exactly the same file in there, Cubase doesn’t think so and I get a window popping up saying
The Project file has been moved
Please confirm the project working directory
Document path is D:\Documents\Cubase Projects…
New (1) D:\Documents\Cubase Projects…
Old (2) C:\Users\Joe\Documents\Cubase Projects…
While not a big problem, I just don’t want Cubase getting confused, thinking about it I could get around it by when I create a new project, select “My PC” then the D drive, then Documents etc and do it that way.
I just wondered if there’s a reason it looks in the D drive when opening projects and creates them in the C drive (again must be me:))
