Due to space limitations on my C: drive, I would like to change the location of the temporary files.

Step-by-step guide

For the Windows version of Shutter Stream here is what you need to do:

  1. Move the C:\Users\(yourname)\AppData\Roaming\IconaSys\ShutterStream  to your new location, say f:\ShutterStream
  2. Start a command prompt as an administrator (type cmd.exe, then right click and select Run As Administrator)
  3. From the command prompt, create a junction point as follows (change f:\yournewfolder with your new location):

    mklink /J "C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\IconaSys\ShutterStream" "f:\ShutterStream" 
  4. Confirm the new location with the "dir" command:

     Directory of C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\IconaSys\
    11/25/2018  10:10 PM    <DIR>          .
    11/25/2018  10:10 PM    <DIR>          ..
    11/25/2018  10:10 PM    <JUNCTION>     ShutterStream [f:\ShutterStream]
                   0 File(s)              0 bytes
                   3 Dir(s)  97,594,851,328 bytes free

If you are still on XP and not Vista or Windows 7, you don't have mklink, but you can use the junction utility in the same way.
