Talking change Location of database or JD2 installation

hi guys!
I prefer to have either the whole program, or at least the location of the database on a different (encrypted) drive.
I dont want anything lying around in c:/users... or anywhere else on the non-crypted system disk.

Where can I change the location of the database (if that's possible)?
Or can I simply chose to install everything in eg. m:\utils\jdownloader2
(my Truecrypt volume).

PS. I recommend the same to all Firefox users. Just copy your profile to your crypted volume, eg. m:\data\firefox\[whatever Name you like]
Then start Firefox.exe -p (from commandline) and make a new profile and chose to save it at this new location. So you don't need to worry that anyone could snoop through whatever you've been doing online in Firefox.
When you're sure it works, you can purge your profile in c:\users... and only use it for stuff you dont mind other people could see.

You can not move the cfg path without using OS trickery (linked paths). But the easiest solution is to install everything to the path you desire. JD installs all files to a single path making it easy to make portable or backup.

Don't fight the system, use it to your advantage. :]
