FAQ: How do I change the location where my raster proxy files will be written?

Question

How do I change the location where my raster proxy files will be written?

Answer

You can change the default location with the sample utility Advanced ArcMap Settings (AdvAMSet.exe). This tool is located under:

c:\ArcGIS\ArcEXE81\ArcObjects Developer Kit\Utilities\VBAdvancedSettingsUtility 


Note:
If the tool is not in this folder, you will need to do a custom install.

Make sure the new location is set to a writable folder with adequate disk space. Auxiliary files are fairly small, and pyramid files only contain around 8% of the original pixels of each associated dataset, but remember these pixels are stored without compression.
