Can anyone help me identify the cause of this that appears on the bottom of the BI4 window? This appears on a fresh BI4 install on a new W10 Pro PC. The BI DB is on C: drive (NVME drive) and the clips are stored on AV rated drive label T:

I exported .reg from Win7 pc to new Win10 pc, deactivated Win7 install, activated license on new Win10.

I don't know where the reference to D: is coming from, nor how to get rid of it.

How about a couple of screenshots of your "options'. "clips and archiving" page, 1 for the "New" folder and 1 for the "Stored" folder.

OK, I now see one issue, I can't explain this either, the path in my screenshot is referencing BI3, I'm about to change that and send a new screenshot

The "New" folder path should be "T:\Blue Iris\New", "Stored" should be "T:\Blue Iris\Storage".

I'd close BI, create those sub-folders in Windows Explorer, then open BI and repair database ("status", "clip storage", "repair database").

Wow, Tony, I can't thank you enough. I found the reference to the D: drive that must have carried over in the settings export. I created a new, stored, and alerts folder under the Blue Iris root folder on T: drive, restarted, and red message is gone.

Thank you so much for helping me, and on a holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
