    Default location for extract creation -- how to change?

    Wendy Foslien

      I'm trying to create an extract for a very large set of data. I'm running into a problem when Tableau attempts to write the database -- by default, it is writing to the C: drive, which doesn't have enough free space. So, I tried moving my Documents & Settings folder to the D: drive, but it still seems that the extracts are writing to a Temp directory under Local Setting on the C: drive. Is there something additional I need to do in order to convince Tableau to write to the D: drive?
