I plan to run a test RM7 database against which I will test things that might corrupt my production database. When I'm happy I've got it right then I will apply the change to my production database. Things I'd like to test include complicated Source Templates, automatic screen-scraping scripts, etc.
If I use the same set of folders for both my test and production databases I run the risk of damaging the production environment (if not the production database itself). For example, if I'm not careful then during testing I might inadvertently delete an item in the media gallery (thinking it was only required for the test database) which is actually needed for the production database. And all my .rmgb backup files will (without manual override by me) end up in the same backup folder.
The Tools/Program Options/Folders setting applies to all databases. I would like to run RM7 with a different set of folders for the test database and production database. One tedious way is to remember to change some of the Tools/Program Options/Folders setting before doing any work, but this is a bit tedious.
Is there a way to tell RM7 I want to use a different set of folders for a particular database? How have others tackled this test/production requirement?
TIA ... John.
