    Prevent MC to use system drive

    Hi all,


    how can I prevent MC from using the system drive PERMANENTLY for creating media files? I know I can change this in the "media creation" settings but I have to do this with every new project that I create.


    How can I tell MC not to use C: (because that is a small SSD disc. My media drive is E:.



    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Set your Media Creation settings to filter out the system drive, then open your Site Settings box (it's under the Special menu, I believe), and drag the Media Creation setting from your Project window to the Site Setting box. All new projects should now respect your Media Creation settings (although old ones won't - this will only affect all new projects you create).

    A trick i use it to create the folder AvidMediaFiles on your c: drive and then create a text file called MXF take the txt extention off of it ( i made mine in notepad ) inside the AvidMediaFiles folder.  Then if you try to digitize or import to that drive you get an error, because it wants to creat an MXF folder but can't.  I found this to be useful in helping editors remember where to digitize, and to always check there settings.
