Lotus Notes - Windows 7 - Replication
Posted on 2010-11-12
I have installed Lotus Notes 8.5 on Windows XP countless times in my job. Always in the default location of C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Notes\Data
Windows 7 doesn't seem to like this. And despite altering the location during install, the Data directory in placed in the user profile (C:\Users\profile\AppData\Local\Lotus\Notes\Data)
When it comes to replication, we have some databases built in Notes that are huge, 20GB plus. And certain people have 2 or 3 of these locally.
I don't want these in the user profile, I want them in another location on the C Drive.
I've changed file paths in the notes.ini file and in Notes, I've gone to File, Preferences, Basics Notes Client Configuration and changed the "Local Application Folder" location away from the user profile.
However, despite this, when I replicate a database, Notes STILL puts the file in the User Profile.
How do I tell Lotus Notes to put the local replica of a database in another location other than the user profile when running it on Windows 7???
