By default, data logs are stored in the my docunments folder, is there a way to specify a different directory?
In the export dialog, you can browse anywhere you want to change the datalog folder.
w0dz Thanks for the reply, but that only changes where the exported log files go to, but where the data files of active logs are created. The issue is that in our environment, the user's home directory (and my documents folder) is stored on a network drive. There's a surprising amount of data written to the log while actively running a logging operation, and it causes performance issues when the destination is on the network.
Jeff, log files are stored in hdf5 format, which is a custom format not readable by customers. They are used by our Data Manager to reconstruct the logging session, not just the logged data. That folder cannot be changed.
That's unfortunate as it creates performance and stability issues when folder redirection is used and the home directory is located on a network drive, especially when using WiFi. Being able to specify a different working directory would be an easy solution. I have found and implemented a workaround though. Using Group Policy, you can enable loopback processing and disable folder redirection on a specific computer. This keeps the my documents folder local and resolves the performance problems.
