Moving Album DS folder
WARNING: The Album DS folder should only be moved if absolutely necessary, Album DS has more than 8.000 files and they must follow a predefined structure.

Before starting make a backup of the whole Documents/Album DS folder into an external drive.


Mac instructions:
1.- Move the whole Album DS folder to the new location, for sample to the volume Data. Now you will have a folder like Data:Album DS
2.- In Documents you won't have an Album DS folder
3.- Create a new Album DS folder in Documents, it will be empty
4.- Crate a text file (with TextEdit) with following content (replace with your own volume name)
Data:Album DS
IMPORTANT: The text should be created as plain text, you will need to adjust TextEdit Preferences, then save it with default encoding UTF-8.
5.- Save this file into Documents:Album DS with the name Moved.txt


Windows instructions:
1.- Move the whole Album DS folder to the new location, for sample to the drive H:. Now you will have a folder like H:\Album DS
