Store data on an NAS?

Postby mmchugh » Thu Jun 21, 2012 12:41 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to store my libraries on an NAS so that I can access my data from more than one computer?

Thanks,

Mike McHugh

Hi Mike,

No problem, with the Pedia not running copy your data folder from ~/Library/Application Support/DVDpedia to your NAS. Then launch DVDpedia while holding down the option key and this will give you the option to select the the new location Database.dvdpd file that is inside that folder. Depending on how you mount the NAS on different computers and the OS version they are running they will or allow you to merge changes made on both computers or actually lock one Pedia out of making changes if not supported by the OS. For simplicity sake I recommend sticking to making major changes on one Pedia and the other for browsing.
