Directories

The main idea here is control over your PowWow Directories. There is no need to change anything on this interface for a beginning user, although making some changes is not very difficult. Below I have cited some examples to illustrate what differing directories might do. You must browse for the file you want to point towards, typing doesn't work here and is actually harder than browsing.


File Transfer Directory Say for example you find it difficult to always look on the path C:\Program Files\Tribal Voice\PowWow32 every time you recieve a sent file from one of your friends. What you can do as an alternative strategy is direct your file transfer directory to the desktop. This way it is always right there on the desktop and quickly accessible. First create a file on your desktop named MyPowWowFiles. Then change the file transfer directory to C:\Windows\Desktop\MyPowWowFiles Your recieved files will now go to this file rather than the default PowWow32 directory.


Browse for Directory 

Address Book / Blocking Book Directory Say for instance you wanted to have a new directory for your address book so you can always find the directory easily and quickly. Just create on the C: drive a file named MyAddresses. Then browse for this file on the following path: C:\MyAddresses


Sound File Directory After you have had PowWow for several months all the stuff in your PowWow32 folder can make searching through the whole file a very slow process. You can put all of your sounds into a different directory and direct PowWow and your pc to look in the new folder, and therefor minimize the size of the file which makes searching easier. You must create the directory before you can can browse for it, and again browsing must be done as opposed to type-writing. The file I created for this example is C:\Program Files\Tribal Voice\PowWow32\MySounds Make sure to browse for the file on the Directories Tab. And of course you will need to actually move the .wav files to your new MySounds directory.
