    I installed aMSN onto a TryeCrypt security partition expecting the whole program to be installed there and be read and written there. But then I noticed that aMSN, like MSN does too, stores all my personal profile pics etc in:

    C:/users/truth/amsn

    Does anyone know how to tell amsn or MSN to never use C: and just store 100% everything on another partition that it's installed on?

    Hey traxx75. The following is in original aMSN:

    if { [OnDarwin] } {
    set HOME "[file join $env(HOME) Library/Application\ Support/amsn]"
    } elseif { [OnUnix] } {
    set HOME "[file join $env(HOME) .amsn]"
    } elseif { [OnWin] } {
    if {[info exists env(USERPROFILE)]} {
    set HOME "[file join $env(USERPROFILE) amsn]"
    } else {
    set HOME "[file join [pwd] amsn_config]"
    }
    } else {
    set HOME "[file join [pwd] amsn_config]"


    I then changed it to:

    if { [OnDarwin] } {
    set HOME "[file join [pwd] amsn_config]"
    } elseif { [OnUnix] } {
    set HOME "[file join [pwd] amsn_config]"
    } elseif { [OnWin] } {
    if {[info exists env(USERPROFILE)]} {
    set HOME "[file join [pwd] amsn_config]"
    } else {
    set HOME "[file join [pwd] amsn_config]"
    }
    } else {
    set HOME "[file join [pwd] amsn_config]"
    }

    And now all my personal profile pics etc are all stored in the same folder on my Truecrypt file :)

    Thanks, your link worked great :)

    This stops aMSN placing all my personal pics on C:/Users/Truth/aMSN

    Cheers :)
