Move descript.ion file path

Post by *bogordo »

Hi,
Im working files within a network, is there a way to change the descript.ion path so my coleagues can't see the .ION i generate, thus, moving the files to my local c:/ or so...??
Thank you,

How should that work ?
Descript.ion files are stored in the directory which contain the files described in it.

That makes sense...
Only guessing: .ION files with path to files, thus, all the .ION files in "c:/tc_description" calling to each path to the server....

Note: The descript.ion format is not invented by TC, but made by jpsoft for their programs 4NT and Take Command.
Meanwhile this format is used by other programs too, e.g. TC.
You have to stick with this format to remain compatible.

Ok thanks, so short answer: not possible :(

As far as my partners don't use "show hidden files" i'm fine :)

AFAIK in case of LAN it should be possible to store descript.ion file anywhere on local PC, and to put its symlink in a LAN location. If original file is on NTFS, it should be possible to limit its access rights to local PC user which starts Total Commander. I didn't try it though, so I'm not sure about exact steps of doing it.

Sorry, but this will not work for several reasons.
The simplest one is that you may have the same filename in several dirs
and there is no path stored inside of a descript.ion of course.
