Default Digidesign database

I atttempted move my Digidesign database from an extended partition "D" to the C drive in the hopes that PT would load faster.It ended up asking me to autherize my PT (Which it is already) so I stopped there.
How can a move the Database to C safely AND will it help with performance? The main progran resides on the C drive.

Default Re: Digidesign database

The "databases" are created automatically by the program. They are temporary directories that are created on every drive hooked up to the system when you run the program. "Moving them" wouldn't do you any good at all as there should already be one on the system drive and the program will re-create it in the "moved from" location anyway.

Are you talking about your Pro Tools sessions? (please tell me you are not saving them inside the temporary databases directory?)

It is recommended to store, play and record your Pro Tools sessions on a separate physical hard drive other than the system (C:) drive.

No I'm not saving them there. And I see what you mean. I did it again and everything worked fine. Thanks for the quick response.
