switching computers (or maybe using a portable drive?)
« on: October 08, 2008, 10:38:05 AM »
I've got my inventory, recipes, ingredients, equipment info, etc. all into BeerSmith.

Now I may be switching jobs, and I've been using my work computer.  I need to move to a temporary drive like a flash drive ideally, or else save a file I can re-open later or re-install or something on a new computer. 

Is there a help file on this?  I couldn't locate one, but may not be looking in the right place.

I believe if you just install directly to the thumb drive it will work in many cases (choose the thumb drive as the install location).  There are some challenges here - for example some users have reported browsing problems if the thumb drive is slow, but several have made it work.

Cheers,
