Hoping someone can help me out. I have a new computer that is only 4 months old. I have been saving everything I do to C drive (120GB) like I have always done, now it is full and I cant work on it anymore. I have a D drive that is 2TB so I copied all my documents, photos etc to that drive to free up space on C drive. Now when I try and open up any file on D drive I get the following message
"Please reconnect the device that has the file location, or choose a new folder. In the meantime, content will be saved in the corel default location. You can move the content after the file location is restored' Can anyone tell me what that means and what I need to do. Thank you
Thank you SO much! This solution worked to end the same error message I kept receiving in CD 2018 after moving my file save folder to an external drive.
To be precise, the location of the settings is:Computer\HKEY_USERS\YourUserGUID\SOFTWARE\Corel\CorelDRAW Home & Student\21.0\Box Preferences\File Locations
I am getting the same thing on Corel Draw 2019. I've tried what you've suggested but it's not working for me. Any other suggestions?
I have the academic user version too with the same problem. I found the registry keys using a freeware tool called "Registry Finder" which is much faster than RegEdit; it also allows text-replacement of the offending parts of the key. I have found this helpful with both Corel Draw and PaintShop Pro, both of which like to put various files in my documents directory that I don't want cluttered with this sort of thing; I've used RegFinder to change the keys to read a more suitable location. By the by there were a whole bunch of locations - 25 or so.
As always ensure that you backup registry first though I guess reinstalling CDraw would fix any major errors.
That's exactly what worked for me, and what was hanging up starting the program: One Drive listings. One Drive was grayed out on my computer, not highlighted in red. Clicking on it and then Reset worked! Whew. Thanks, all!
