    Hi,

    it is in principle a good idea that FileVoyager on startup shows the directories in left and right pane that we’re used when using FileVoyager the last time.

    But if using the same notebook in different environments this can be a problem.

    Example: I have used file share \\private_nas\myfiles in the home office and when being in company again FileVoyager will take a long time to start and then show errors about the network share not being available any more.

    Is there a way to tell FileVoyager always to start with local drive C:\ on left pane and local drive D:\ on right pane?

    TIA

    Hi Gerhard,

    There’s an undocumented (yet) feature that allows you to do exactly what you want.
    It implies you edit the FileVoyager.ini file.

    Hint: If you are using the Portable version, FileVoyager.ini file is in the FileVoyager\ini folder.

    In the ini, spot the section [LeftPane] and adapt the following keys so they have the values below:
    AllwaysSameDirLV1=0 (previously -1)
    AllwaysDirLV1=c:\ (previously empty)

    Do the same in [RightPane] (here the keys are suffixed with ‘2’):
    AllwaysSameDirLV2=0 (previously -1)
    AllwaysDirLV2=d:\ (previously empty)

    I’ve tested it right now and it’s still working 😉

    Let me know if this works for you.

    Regards

    Hi,
    tweaking the INI file like you described solved the problem, thanks a lot.
    Two more hints for others who might read this:
    – folder with the FileVoyager.ini is %appdata%\FileVoyager\Ini
    – be sure FileVoyager is not running when editing the INI
    Regards
    Gerhard
