Default I have this situation

Hello.
I have this situation: I have two laptops, one laptop in one room, another laptop in another room, I have one portable hard disk, on the first laptop I initially saved all the links,portable hard drive was identified under the letter F, I made backup settings program and yesterday I wanted to continue downloading links from another second laptop where I had the same portable hard disk identified under another letter D, but the system answered me that the wrong placement directory, although I have the same directory(folder) in the settings this program on which I originally kept the links, that now the portable hard drive was identified on another computer under another letter D and I can not on the second computer change the hard drive to the same letter F,how to use the backup copy of the program to download links from another laptop with the same portable portable hard drive but under another letter D?

Default Download Directory only affects new added links.
All links in list stay unchanged when you change default folder, else it won't make any sense to support custom folder support. You've got to rightclick context menu and set correct download directory when the folder/drive changes.

When the download directory is within your JDownloader folder eg JDownloader/downloads, then JDownloader is able to update the changed path automatically.

I did not have the download directory by default and all the links were saved along this path F:adult(folder).
I made a backup copy of the program to save all the links in the program and download them on another laptop but with the same portable hard drive, ,on another laptop now such a path D:adult(folder).
When you start to run links that were previously in the program the system responds "invalid directory".

You have to manually update all packages download directory!
You saved files to F:\ and now JDownloader tries to download to drive F:
But because this no longer exists, JDownloader will show error *Invalid directory*. So you have to select the package(s) in list and rightclick, properties , set download directory and manually set the new drive d: folder
