My iTunes folder is not in that location. I have it on my F drive in a
folder called iTunes because my F drive is a much higher capacity drive than
the default C drive. How do I set Slim server to look in that location
Thanks
Bill

Currently, SlimServer only looks at the default location for the file. It reads
the registry for the location of your "My Documents" system folder.
You can use a tool like tweakui to relocate your My Documents folder and move
all of the contents of My Documents from C to F to better use your space.
