    You cannot change the location of the settings.

    It is possible to symlink to another location, like on a portable drive - assuming you would always remember about having it online, otherwise ugly things will start happening.

    A problem with sharing the whole profile is that it also contains hardware specific stuff related to your gpu which should not be shared between computers.  I also find that i don't want the same workspaces on my 13" laptop as i use on my 30" desktop.

    John Friend, still, there is a use case with having the same settings on several user profiles on the same machine - I consider something similar on my laptop, as I have a restricted user profile for use during "live" sessions, when I can't guarantee being the only one to access my laptop, but also would want to work from my standard profile.

    Yes, that kind of use makes sense, but the prior question was about an external drive which is usually to share between computers.

    I don't want to share the settings between computers. I don't like the microsoft profile directories. I prefer to have settingds in my own directories to save them with my own backup system.

    Just add the Capture One profile directory to your backup. Job done. There are often unforeseen problems when trying to mess with where this type of stuff is stored. There is not a supported way to change it that I know of.

    In the future it works better for everyone if you describe the real issue you're trying to solve in your original question (which is a backup issue) so people don't try to help in wrong directions.
