Change the Default Save Location for Files from the C: Drive to the P: Drive

This process applies to all Windows machines, but does not apply to Skybox, as the P: drive (10GB limit) cannot be indexed. Before changing the default saving location from C: to P: drive, you first need to make the P: drive always available offline.

1.Start menu > Computer, and locate the P: drive.

2. Confirm you are connected to the network; right-click the P: drive that you want to make available offline, and then select Always available offline from the popup menu.

3. If there is no always available offline option from the right-click menu for the network folder/drive, you might be using a version of Windows 7 that does not support offline files.

4. Right-click on the Documents option and left-click Properties from the popup menu.

5. On the Documents Properties page click the Include a folder button, browse to the P: drive and select the drive.  Click Include folder.
