1) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : Large usage of hard drive (Message 77971)

Right, you can specify the data directory for BOINC to use. But the result would be all project data for all BOINC projects going to that location. BOINC, in general, should be running with low disk I/O rates, and so moving all of your BOINC data off of the SSD should not impact your BOINC efficiency.

Simplest way would be to work through all existing WUs, uninstall BOINC and when you reinstall select the options to designate a different data path.

Thank you for the suggestion. However, when I try to install BOINC to a larger drive I get the message that BOINC will only run on the drive that the OS is installed on. Do you have any other suggestions?

Thank you for the reply. Is there any way to put these reference files on a different drive? Or would I have to move Boinc to a different drive. I am running OS X Yosemite. They currently are located on my ssd which is quite full and I would like to make better use of its space.

Can anyone tell me why the Rosetta project is taking up 1.36 GB on my hard drive? This in comparison to 3 other projects that only take up 1.06 to 375.75 MB

Generally ignore the cliamed credit since there is a different credit claiming system used here at Rosetta@home, I think how it is calculated is in the technical nes, but it's certainly in the Number Crunching section of the main message board.

RAC is also an averaging system , so it's probably just settling out and not something you shoudl really worry about.

Though your computers are hidden so we cannot really help anymore than the above.

Thank you for your reply. I am running on 2 computers. The second one is on a wireless connection that seems to drop out after some time of non use. Could this be the problem? Is there a setting where my wireless computer will only try and send/recieve units when it is connect online?

Can anyone explain why my average credit, which was going steadly upward since I recently joined, is dropping. It had gone to a high of 197.6 on Oct.14,06, and since that time has dropped to 169.8 as of Nov, 2,06. I do not recall changing any preference settings, all units show being completed and the granted credit is within +/- 10 of the claimed credit. Is anyone else having this situtation?
