Open the network drive, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive and create a new folder. For example: 'LutraCAD Database'.
Optional: Go to the old directory of the database (by default C:\LutraCAD\database) and copy all folders and paste them in the newly created folder.
Go to the LutraCAD Manager and open the Settings (Cogwheel left bottom).
In the Settings on the General tab click on the 'Add folder' icon next to 'Database Locations'. Navigate to the newly created folder, select the folder and click 'OK'.
In the list there is still the original directory (C:\LutraCAD\database), select the item and click on the DEL key on your keyboard.
Now only the new folder is visible in the list. Click on 'SAVE'.
LutraCAD will restart.
To test the result, create a new client and in the Windows Explorer go the new database location. A new folder should be added with the newly entered information.
