I couldn’t find this information and wasn’t sure where to share it, so I guess I’ll put it here. If you have a SSD (Solid-State Drive) and want to minimize writes to it by moving the cache to a HDD (Hard disk Drive), you can do so very easily in Windows 7 by following these few steps. This is for advanced users only. Quotation marks should not be included when you are typing the commands shown below.
- Click Start.
- Type "services.msc" and press .
- Right-click TVersity Media Server and choose "Stop".
- If UAC is enabled, click start, type "explorer", right-click it and choose "Run as Administrator"
- Navigate to the folder on your computer where TVersity is installed.
- Hold down shift and right-click on a blank area in the Explorer window, then choose "Open a Command Prompt Here."
For the next few steps, replace D:\ with the drive on which you want to store the TVersity cache folder.
- Type "robocopy /copyall /mir /xj data D:\TVersity\data" and press .
- Type "rmdir /S /Q data" and press .
- Type "mklink /J E:\Users D:\TVersity\data" and press .
Advanced User Notes: Feel free to replace the D:\TVersity\data path with whatever you want. As long as you replace it in both the robocopy and mklink commands, it will work fine!
