    Yes, but then they are no longer an image file are they. They become a 'reverse-engineered MS Version' with crippled search, useless to recompile back into a *img file.

    yes, thanks for correcting, my human error, sorry;

    I edited that post.

    I use mostly Basecamp, so I simply mixed two things in my mind: seeing usb-drives themselves, and seeing what's actually on them.
    Mapsource that I found here can see even all my HDs, too.

    Default Method to transfer heavy home made .jnx files from C: to another NFTS disk

    Hi,

    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.

    Hi,

    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 ?
