    Install Ninja Database on non C: Drive

    My C: drive is a SSD drive that is not meant to keep large pieces of data. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to install the data files for Ninja Trader on any other drive. The program itself is on my E: drive, but Ninja installed the data on C:. Now my C: drive is full. How can I point the data to my E: drive? Seems odd that Ninja wouldn't offer this feature with a lot off super fast computers now using SSD drives. Any help here?

    Thanks,

    Cindy

        I can think of 3 ways.

        1. The simplest way is to move the "My Documents" folder, if the NT data folder is contained in it. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your desires, that will move the whole folder, not just the NT data folder.

        2. You can create a new partition, and mount it as the NT Data Folder.

        3. Move the data to another folder on a different drive, and then use a Junction mapper program to create a hard link from the NT Data Folder to that folder on the other drive.

          Will that work? I am afraid to do this for fear it will mess my Ninja up. Ninja is the only thing in my C: documents folder now. All my other documents are already on my E drive so if this would work, it would be great.

          Thanks,

          Cindy

            Hi Cindy,

            NinjaTrader uses the Windows documents folder to store your NT custom items. It's possible to change this to a different directory. You need to change the setting for the folder location within Windows for this.

            Google search for change documents folder Windows 7.

              Can I do this and not cause Ninja problems without uninstalling and re-installing Ninja? Or should I do a reinstall after I move My Documents to my E drive. Just want to double-check to be sure

              Thanks,

                  THX - I used junction.exe from Sysinternals - a free tool - worked great!
