drive. I use SeaMonkey 1.1.18

Your profile is always on C: if you didn't move it, no matter where you
put Seamonkey as application.
Copy your profile to another drive and use the profile manager to guide
SM to this new directory (by creating a "new" profile).
Don't know where your profile is?


Thanks, looks like I have some reading to do.


The method given by Martin is a safe way of moving your entire profile
onto another drive, but.....

Alternatively, Dale, SeaMonkey thinks it's profile is still on the C:\
drive because it's location is stored in it's "prefs.js" file!

In a Browser, type "about:config" (without the quotes), read the warning
and if you're happy press enter. The screen will fill with some of your
configuration settings. In the filter line type "mail.root" (without the
quotes) and you should see where SeaMonkey expects your mail profile to be.

If you are feeling game (maybe close SeaMonkey completely and make a
copy of pref.js first), double click on the line that applies to your
profile and, if you're happy, change it to reflect where you have moved
the profile to.



Thanks, that would seem a lot easier. Perhaps I can just go to 2.0 instead. I loaded it and it seems ok although I don't like the new split screen for email with the left column running beside the messages instead of just beside the message list, but otherwise it seems ok. They two versions don't play well with each other so I will end up picking one of the other.
