Good morning Joe_terrell12,

I hope you had a great weekend. Are you looking to move all of the profile files into the NAS hard drive? In order to do that you have to back up my profile data (default location is in C:\Users\ {your name} \My Documents\My ProFile Data\) and transfer it into the NAS harddrive

You can then change the file directory path in profile to the NAS drive as long as it is visible in each pc. More instructions on how to change file directory path:

The database folder is also in Myprofiledata folder and each computer can set their database based on settings in that folder.

I hope that helps.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
