Can you modify PRTG to store configuration and data files on an external disk ?



Is it possible to install PRTG on a local drive on a system and have the data files,configuration files... reside on a external disk. If not can PRTG be installed on an external disk that would be used on another server in case of hardware failure ?

moving PRTGs datafolder to another drive is possible, but moving it onto an external drive might effect the performance in a negative way.

best regards.
