Description ondrejbohaciak 2008-12-06 21:34:15 UTC
There are several folders containing NetBeans settings and other related data that reside in user's home folder. I'm 
using Windows Vista, let's say my username is Ondrej. My user folder (%UserProfile%) is redirected to disk D:\ 
(previously C:\Users\Ondrej). After installing and running NetBeans, these extra folders are created:


I would like it very much if these were relocated to either %ProgramData% directory or to %UserProfile%\My Documents. 
These are the proper folders for kkeping user/machine specific program data. I like to keep my folders tidy ;)

Btw. You can redirect .netbeans whereever you want with --userdir parameter. For the others, it depends on what Java 
runtime thinks is your home directory. Which apparently is D:\. If anyone can help you, then it would be the laucnher 
maintainer, I guess.

Assigning to db, because of .netbeans-derby.
