Windows 7: Default Save folder

12 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premuim 64 Bit
Default Save folder

How can i change where WMC saves recorded TV?

I do know that i can change to another Hdd (at the current momoment i dont have a second Hdd)

I want to change to a diffrent folder on my C: Drive (same drive as the OS)

The default folder it saves to is C:\Users\Public\Recorded TV

I want to change it to C:\Users\Derek and Tiena\My Recorded TV

I cannot figure out how (if at all) how to change it.

I do have both folders set up to "read" media from both folders.

Start Windows Media Center.

Navigate to Tasks -> Settings, and select.

Settings -> TV -> Recorder -> Recorder storage

Here you'll find the "record on drive" setting, for the Recorded TV folder.

I have mine set to my F-drive, so the recording folder is F:\Recorded TV

I don't believe you have the option to change the actual folder name itself from the built-in default of "Recorded TV", either on another hard drive (in the root) or on C (in the \Users directory where you see it).
