Hi John,

When I install the iMagic, the database is setup in c:/my documents/iMagic Invenotry/Database. Can I relocate the database and save on an external hard drive ?

Regards/Steve

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the question on setting up your database on the network.

You can certainly relocate the database. You could put the database on a PC on the network, share it and then have other PCs connect to it. The steps to do this would be the same as the multiple users:

Not all attached external drives support multiple user access. So I would suggest storing the database on an internal hard drive on a PC. In that way, you can be sure that multiple users can access it at the same time.

To be clear, some more expensive external drives do support multiple user access. You would have to check on the specifics of that drive if that is what you are wanting to do.

Regards, John
