    Question Configure separate folder for ZA virus database and user files

    I have windows XP and had downloaded ZA. When it updated its virus database my system drive's space reached 100% and I had to remove ZA from my machine.
    Later I found that ZA keeps all user data files and even virus definition database in user folder which is by default a system drive.
    Is there any option in ZA to configure the user files and virus definition in different disk drive?

    What your asking for an an extreme edge case issue which 99.9% of our user base does not have issue with.

    Usually it's advisable to have some GB free in the system partition. ZA doesn't require such kind of disk space, so if you're having such problems after installing ZA I'd move some apps to the other disk with or without ZA installed.

    If your system disk is a SSD it's also advisable to have it with a percentage of free room to increase its speed (the controller will find room for new files etc more easily) and longevity (easier garbage collection etc).

    (PS: I must have assembled like 8 puzzles already, it first says they're correct showing the solution smaller and in b/w with a green tick in the upper right corner, but when submitting it complaints about it not being correct)

    (PS2: can I avoid that message about showing not secure content in a secure connection with IE8? I always click "yes", is there an "auto-yes" setting for that question?)

    (PS3: retrying with Firefox...)
