When Teradata Studio is launched, it creates a workspace directory (called workspace-studio) in your User Home directory. If you want to change the location of your workspace directory, you must pass the -data option into the TeradataStudio executable by changing the Target parameter in the Windows desktop shortcut or in the command window when launching Teradata Studio.

For example:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Teradata\Client\15.11\Teradata Studio\TeradataStudio.exe" -data "c:\Teradata Studio\My Workspace

There is another directory (called .eclipse) created in your User Home directory that contains configuration information and jars for launching Teradata Studio. If you want to change the location of your configuration directory, you must pass the -configuration option into the TeradataStudio executable by changing the Target parameter in the Windows desktop shortcut or in the command window when launching Teradata Studio.

For example:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Teradata\Client\15.11\Teradata Studio\TeradataStudio.exe" -configuration "c:\Teradata Studio

You can combine both the -data and -configuration options on a single command line.This is often needed when using a Roaming Profile that is not always accessible when running applications.
