Hi Des,

Is it possible to specify different path for delay queue folder? We getting lots of non payable junk messages in it and our SSD drive can be oversized someday.

Regards,
Alex K.

Hi Alex,

There is no setting to allow this.

However, you should be able to trick NowSMS by using a junction/symbolic link to locate the directory on another volume.

To do this, open a command prompt window and navigate to the Q directory. If the DELAYQ directory already exists, back it up and delete it. Then issue the following commands:

mklink /J DELAYQ f:\newpath
attrib +r /L DELAYQ

The first command creates the junction. The second command marks the directory entry for the junction as read-only so that NowSMS cannot delete it when the directory is empty.

This should work. I didn't test it extensively with a large number of files, but it worked in my simple tests.
