Thanks for your answer. Thanks to you, I know how to save the date in my vaults.
But my main point is " how can i change my default location". Is it possible with Anti-theft ? If yes, how can I do it.
Thanks in advance for your answer.
You can use the command line "junction" tool from Microsoft Technet. Move the folder containing the vaults to your desired location and create a junction pointing to the new location. Hope this helps.
