Re: [freenet-support] How to move shrink move datastore ?

Thad Guidry a écrit :

Hello,

I have Freenet installed in Windows XP on my F:\Freenet drive.
I want to move the installation to my C:\Freenet drive.
I also want to shrink or change my datastore size from 100Gigs down to 
perhaps 10Gig instead, before or after the move.

I am using Windows XP.

How would I accomplish the above ?
I have found were to change the size under Advanced, but it doesn't 
seem to shrink it yet.  Does it take time ?


Any help with the above would be tremendous.  In doing the move, I 
plan to keep the node up 24/7.

Hi,
I also use from time to time windows xp pro, and now particularly to 
experiment with Freenet (this xp is installed on an iMac Leopard-Intel), 
but sofar after reading your post, I wonder why don't you just try, 
after having stopped Freenet, to make a right click on its directory and 
then, click on: move to... and choosing the location You like... It 
should work... you may verify afterwith if all the paths and links  are 
correct, but it should be,since normally all the DL folders, Temp 
folders, and so on are in this same directory... I did often this on the 
leopard part of my OS and it always worked (Pando, Freenet [this was on 
Tiger], Ants...)

You should give a trial

It can take a significant amount of time, yes. Once the shrink has completed, I 
recommend you shut down Freenet, copy the important files (freenet.ini, the 
datastore directory, and anything with a number in it, except for the temp dir) 
to somewhere safe, and uninstall. Then install a new node on C, shutdown the 
node, delete the datastore dir and files with a number in their names, and copy 
the old data over it.

This is why you can't just move the directory: You need the new node to still 
be auto-started.
