Hi Terry, hi Dave,
first off: thanks for also chiming in here, Terry. I tried what you described but unfortunately had no success so far as kontakt still doesn’t find the samples and pretends on the paths taken from my laptop.
But I confess: I only trid this on the machine making troubles.
What I remember: when I first used these libraries by simply copying the racks from laptop to PC by hand I could fix the problem by re-storing the rack. But this is no way to go as it needs two non-identical racks (atm my racks reside inside drop-box with physical copies on both machines).
I also tried to create a new drive with the same drive letter as the one the samples reside on my laptop also with no success so far. But this could probably have a completely different reason: when I set up my laptop some years ago I decided (for a reason I don’t remember today) to place the c3 exe files to drive f: instead of c:. So it is probably impossible to leave samples in an adequate relative branch on my ssds.
However: I will try to further investigate this and report back.
Kind regards, Volker
Edit: after some attempts I got it managed. The method Dave described works (if one follows carefully his instructions ). It is really the drive letter & path that has to fit completely.
Thanks for helping out and have a nice week, Volker
