For those who are interested, here is an interesting simple method to transfer heavy home made .jnx files installed in Basecamp hidden folder from C: (formatted in NFTS) to another NFTS disk (external or internal).
I applied this method to my own made .jnx files either under Vista or Seven and it might work under 8 as well.
Hidden folder "JnxFiles" is located in :
C:\Users\"your computer name"\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\BaseCamp
After creating the path F:\Users\your computer name\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\Basecamp (F: being the disk where you want to move your .jnx files), copy this folder JnxFiles in it.
Once copied in F:\Users\your computer name\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\Basecamp, rename folder JnxFiles in JnxFiles2.
Then rename JnxFiles folder located in C:\Users\"your computer name"\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\BaseCamp in _JnxFiles.
Then open and run in administrator mode command prompt and write :
mklink "C:\Users\your computer name\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\BaseCamp\JnxFiles" "F:\Users\your computer name\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\BaseCamp\JnxFiles2" /D
Then enter and it's done.
Open Basecamp to check your .jnx files are still there: if it' OK, you can delete _JnxFiles in C:, increasing free disk space on C:
This method, called "symbolic link method", is reversible :
- close Basecamp
- delete symbolic link (created in C: in JnxFiles folder original location and displayed with a shortcut icon).
- move JnxFiles2 folder from F: to C: giving it back original name JnxFiles.
This method also works very well to move maps installed in MapSource in gmap folder.

I transferred .jnx BirdsEye located in Basecamp collection from the hard disk C:/ of my computer to an external hard disk connected in USB, by using the method of the symbolic links (see previous post): the procedure was well achieved, and when I opened Basecamp, .jnx were displayed.
Then I did the following experiment :
I disconnected the external hard disk of my computer: it was obvious that BirdsEye would not be displayed anymore in Basecamp, but problem is somewhere else.
During the opening of Basecamp, external hard disk disconnected, I got the following error message:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
This message sounded logical, but he proposed two alternatives:
- either to cancel, in which case Basecamp closed. I reconnected then external hard disk, and BirdsEye reappeared when I opened again Basecamp.
- or to correct, in which case Basecamp opened without displaying BirdsEye.
Up to there, everything seems logical, but the continuation is much less : if I close Basecamp, reconnect external hard disk, and open again Basecamp, then BirdsEye are not displayed anymore !
It looks as if "correction" prevents display of the images BirdsEye in Basecamp ; and the worst is to come : if I delete symbolic link, and move back JnxFiles folder from external disk to its original location in C, BirdEyes do not not reappear !
Is there an explanation for this strange phenomenon ? Is there an issue ? Or if I don't want to loose my BirdsEye images, will I have to leave external disk connected permanently on my computer when I open Basecamp ?
