Is it possible to store a graph db in an external hard drive?

Node Clone

I have installed neo4j in my personal laptop and the graph db I'm analyzing keeps growing. Is it possible to move the graph db to an external SSD, load it from there and keep adding more nodes and edges?

Thanks!
Andreas

Hi @and.manousakis

You can change "dbms.directories.data" in neo4j.conf.
And restart Neo4j.

This code is an example.
Set it to your drive and name

#dbms.directories.data=data
dbms.directories.data=D:/MyNeo4jDBData/
