From the Help file, Keyword - File Handling
You can move the temp recovery folder to a location other than the default;
- Choose Edit > Preferences > File Handling (Windows) or InDesign > Preferences > File Handling (Mac OS).
- Under Document Recovery Data, click Browse (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS).
- Specify the new location for the recovered document, click OK, and then click OK again.
I figured that recovery option was the only one, but I wasn't sure I could put that on another disk.
Would doing this help the performance?
Peter's more of the geek on this, but I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that since a scratch disk is not defined, than ID is using the OS swap or virtual paging file. If your looking to improve overall system performance, than a unique hdd, not a partition of the OS hdd is the way to go.
I dig ;-)
Peter hasn't actually played with this in terms of looking at performance, so he doesn't have much of an answer. I don't even know for sure if the recovery information is different from the undo information (though I suspect it has to be) and the undo stuff is probably what slows things down the most. Moving the recovery file can't hurt, though.
Thanks Peter...I'll try it, like you said, I ahve nothing to lose ;-)
Babs, You changed your hair. I like it.
Well thank you Larry
