How to change the data directory of PRTG



Hello, I must say a very good job well done to the support team and programmer of PRTG.I have been using this software to monitor the bandwidth and it's been doing a cool job but I would like to ask/know if it's possible to change the data directory of PRTG to another drive or folder on the system.To understand this better I am running PRTG on Parallel desktop for mac but I want a situation whereby the data files will be somewhere on my mac and while the PRTG installation will be running on the parallel desktop.How can I achieve this?


database directory netflow-v5 prtg
