I already have it installed.  In fact the version I have is newer then the version discussed in this article.  After reading this lengthy article I see nothing in it about changing the default directory, am I missing something?

Not worked with BCM so cannot be specific on how to direct you here.
where it is storing the data right now and which one you want to make as default directory ?

it's in the usual documents and setting folder, however my OS is setup on a stripped raid set (two disks that look like one) for performance and I want put all my data on a second raid set set that is mirrored (one disk that actually is two identical disks - thus giving me reduncy).  But I can't seem to install it to a custom directory...

AxeTracks,

Whatever you are trying to do with outlook , can you do the same using another application just to make sure your 2 disk concept works. may be outlook doesnot support something like that.
