Deleting programs?

Postby anthonyw » Sun Jun 03, 2012 4:25 pm

Did anybody else purchase a lot of programs and find themselves not using some of them? Is the only option to delete them if we no longer want them due to cluttered workflow?

sure, why not..You just delete (or copy somewhere else to make archive) programs and vectors You don't use..easy as that

That is all fine and good. But I will say that some programs (particularly some older ones and some specific developers) have names that are not as obvious as others, so deleting and/or moving them, which SHOULD be basic, is not so simple. This has posed issues for me when wanting to apply patches on programs and can't locate some program files by name. But as a general rule, yes, the way to trim down your neb repository folder is to manually delete them.... :evil:

richie- NAT really comes in handy in that situation. just go to the list editor part of nat, load all program files you have into that area, then look for the program name and you can see what the actual filename is.

one other thing about deleting programs that needs to be mentioned- you don't just delete the n2p but also the n2v. also, you'll want to go into the 'temp' folder in your 'nebulatemporaryrepository' folder or wherever you installed nebula to, and delete everything in that temp folder. otherwise the deleted programs will keep showing up in your list when you load nebula.
