I have changed the c:\user\David\<etc> directory to be on D:\David but POV 3.7
still uses c:\
Is there any way to prevent / update where POV tries to load it's settings from?
(I have a SDD as C:\ and hence want to prevent things from writing to it.)

When the system folder My Documents is moved to D:\whatever then POV 3.7 (and
other programs as well) will use that one. Unfortunately, it is a week point of
POV 3.7 that no redirection is possible.
