Subject: [TMG] Storage of Exhibits
Date: Mon, 9 Jan 2012 09:43:32 -0600
I made the decision (rightly or wrongly) to store exhibits internally, rather than externally, just because of the way file structure changes over time. My hard drive is compartmented so that the OS runs on one logical drive, programs on another, data on another, and images on another. I followed Terry's instructions in setting up the correct file paths to make it all work. While this compartmentalization is complex, it made it possible to restore Windows periodically to fix Windows-related issues. I no longer need to worry about Windows, but have been concerned about the way my image tree has grown as I've added scanned images. I can see how easy it would be to make a change in the file structure which would make the exhibit unfindable for TMG.
My question is: is there a downside (other than the database size factor) to storing exhibits internally, rather than externally via setting a path to them? I'm currently running v7, but will eventually upgrade (if the WordPerfect Report Writer is finished).
