not enough space on my mac



  • Rick Sammartino Community moderator

    There is no documented way to move the catalogs. Maybe you can catalog just the newer folders rather than all of them to save space.

    I'm not familiar with MAC, on windows you can move the entire appdata folder where the catalogs are stored. Does Mac have an equivalent?

    Thanks. I couldn't locate the catalog files on my Mac. Even if I find them, I doubt it would be easy to move them without loosing the links.

    Still hoping for a solution. I've got 1.5Tbytes of pictures ....

    Moving the appdata folder is something that windows will do for you, not something you can just cut and paste. That's why I asked about a Mac equivalent.

    Seems like a feature request is in order.... 

    Add a "Move" function to the Rt.Click menu in browse mode.... thus, as long as you "move" the folder using on1, the links and the catalog information is bound* to the new location (*change bindings would avoid having to re-catalog)

    Gus, I don't see that anyone has suggested that yet. Feel free to add it to the list.

    You'll need to be more specific though, you can already move folders, it's the catalog (database) that you want to relocate.

    I don't know how to do it with a Mac to recover disk space, but I know how to do it with Windows:

    C:/user/Your name/ AppData/ roaming/ On1/ PerfectCacheBrowse/ Watched content.

    Open Watched content and Delete all files in "watched content".

    Doing this has no influence on cataloged files. (But you can save the content of watched content on an external disk in case) .
