Default BB Link - Default synching location

Please Login to Remove!

Probably a simple question, but ...
As a Z10 user, with BB Link installed and latest updates (July 14), how do I switch the default location from the default C:\ drive i.e. Docs & Settings for Pictures, Videos (and Music) to another location of my choice, i.e. an external HDD that is permanently connected to our Desktop (Win XP, SP3)?

Guidance on BB Link is OK and works for the 'Back-up' location, which I've done, but the volume of (family & friends') photos and videos - esp using Storymaker - is massive and is all dumped on my C drive. How do I change it!
Space on my C Drive is getting tight now as the synched Videos and Pictures now take up 20GB+ leaving only 1.3GB free when I have >500GB space on the external drive.

From Crackberry etc forums, this does seem a common issue, but there must be an easy work-around. After this, synching my Contacts and emails will be next but, firstly I'd like to start with Videos & Photos.

Sure one of you guys can help!

Default Re: BB Link - Default synching location

Change the location of backup files on your
computer page 5
page 18 for files to be sync'ed or how to prevent what you do not want

I was able to backup to a flash drive and a connected external hard drive by changing the default location to load to. the default is the C drive
but I selected E drive and moved all photos to that location
