How to change the GigaStor storage directory or drive
You can change the directory where packets collected by your GigaStor are stored. However, if you are using a GigaStor hardware appliance, this should always remain set to D:\DATA.
This can also be performed on any Observer and is not limited to the GigaStor.
 
Some reasons for changing the GigaStor storage directory include:
You are using the GigaStor Software Edition and need to store packets somewhere else than the C:\ drive.
You regularly schedule packet captures, so you want those captures to be saved in a specific location.
You need to store packet captures on a higher capacity hard disk.
To change the directory where collected packets are stored:
1. Click the File tab, and click Options > General Options.
2. Click the Folders tab.
3. Change the directory used for packet captures.
Caution: If you are using a GigaStor hardware appliance, this should always remain set to D:\DATA.
