How to change the default directory from user home directory to another location?

0 votes

In ePADD User Guide 3.0 pg 8 is the correct file config.properties or epadd.properties? I tried changing config.properties to add the epadd.base.dir=d:\ePADD then restarted ePADD. I am trying to move the appraisal, discovery, delivery and processing directories to d:\ePADD instead of c:\users\userid\epadd-xxx. I moved the directories to d:\ePADD, updated the config.properties to include epadd.base.dir=d:\ePADD. When I start ePADD from command line java -Xmx12g -jar epadd-standalone.jar it defaults the appraisal directory back to c:\users\userid\epadd-appraisal. The epadd.log file confirms it is looking for c:\users\userid\epadd-appraisal. Any suggestions for getting the modules on to the d: drive where there is more space?

The correct file should be epadd.properties and it should be put in your home directory. Sorry for the trouble. We will update the manual asap.

Upgrade to 3.1 and still not able to get this to work successfully.

Correction... I got this to work in version 3.1. I had to create the epadd.properties file in the c:\users\userid folder, not in the c:\users\userid\epadd-settings folder. Noticed the change of directory in the user guide from 3.0 to 3.1.

ePADD is a software package developed by Stanford University's Special Collections & University Archives that supports archival processes around the appraisal, ingest, processing, discovery, and delivery of email archives.
