is it possible to make on each drive file or folder (like VDJ .XML or Serato folder) to make collection of files, for faster startup?
now is like this..

i have videos on external disk. and from time to time drive letter changes. now i have to change drive letter to this, witch was it, when collection was analyzed... it's should be automatic... and it will make faster startup for Cross...

In win you can set a drive to a folder of any drive.

I e.g. always use K for music and L for video.
This makes me independent of a system so I can use local hdd as source and/or an external hdd using the same collection file.

# setup audio and video
subst k: D:\music
subst l: D:\videos

You can run this from the Run box (per line) or make a batch file.
If you put/link this batchfile to the startup folder of Windows it will be run upon startup.

it's a classic DOS method that does not take any performance as it is applied in the process cycle before a disk is even accessed by the OS.
The subst is short for substitute.

Don't forget to point to your right analysis folder in case you change systems...
