Change location of recorded files in project only

Hello there-
I changed the settings of my overall Vegas program (using the INTERNALS tab in preferences) to prompt me for the location of recorded audio in a project.

However recently I accidentally accepted the default location and now one project in particular is saving everything that is recorded into "DOCUMENTS" on my computer.

This makes it hard to move the project back and forth. Is there a way to change only where one project is saving recorded audio files?

The audio location(s) for a project are saved in the project file. Each project may have its audio stored anywhere, just as for the video. Use the Explorer pane to search for your source files, wherever you have put them.

If you want to change the location of a source file, just move it when the project is closed. Next time you open the project, Vegas will ask where the source now is, and it will remember that when you save the project.

"Next time you open the project, Vegas will ask where the source now is"
-and a pop up window will offer the options:
- Search for missing file
- Specify a new location or replacement file
- Ignore missing file and leave it off line
- Ignore all missing files and leave them offline
For newly recorded media, the default folder can be set in "File> Properties"

You can also move it within Vegas' Explorer window, which not only moves the source file, but updates the project to know where it is now at the same time.

In my case, all I had to do was click 'File' on the top right options and click 'Properties'. A window would appear, click on the 'Audio' tab, and below, there should be a 'recorded files folder' where you can change the directory of the recorded audio files.

@walter-i. I know, but I see that no one has given the solution I found yet, so I figured I should just include it. People from several years in the future might come across this thread, so it's better to give it more answers.

@ScreamMario But does your method change the location of recorded files in project only which is what the original poster asked? Or does it change the location for all projects. I'm a VMS user so cannot check in VP.

@EricLNZ I think so, I opened a new project and the directory is back to the default place.
