    Hi all: after buying and using the LAN version (3 machines, only 1 used at a time) for some years, i decided that i needed a portable solution that didn’t depend on the unique disc #.
    Still, the issue i am confronting is regarding the machinename.

    My data location, on any machine, is the portable drive @ A:\AARCHIVE

    Is it possible to subvert the machinename so one doesn’t need to do “rename” query every time one uses a different machine with this set-up?

    i did notice that when i choose DISK INFO (ADVANCED > See which disk contains this file) that “Computer name (optional)” is part of the identification.
    Does that mean that [machinename] can actually be eliminated?
    . . . or . . ‘NULL’ ed ?

    many thanks

    xkat, sorry, I don’t know what you are talking about. 🙂

    unlike tabbles 3, tabbles 4 does not use the unique disk id anymore. it uses paths. in the database, you will have the path A:\foo\bar

    so where’s the problem?
