Application data stored in user directory in Windows 7, without user's consent, or option to change directories

Currently JustinMind Prototyper stores some application data in a folder in the Windows user directory, along with some configuration and log files. The folder takes up 120 MB of disk space. I would like the option to relocate the folder to a more spacious location. Where can I modify these preferences? 872fb8eca62f77994accbbff9132d47c

You can do so editing the file [path were you installed prototyper]JustinmindPrototyper.ini . You need to change the paths of the -configuration and -data parameters. Of, if you like, you can just remove both parameters and its paths and then the installation folder will be used instead the user's folder.

Thanks! That worked perfectly!


Just want to confirm that its ok to delete the folders from the user directory? I have not created or saved any prototypes yet.

That folder is used to store the widgets you create in 'My Widgets' and the application preferences. So, if you haven't created any, you can remove it.
