Talking about the way you can install GS, take in account that you
only need "index" folder to serve the collection. This folder must
reside under the folder where you installed GS.
The import folder can reside anywhere. You can take the files from
another computer. You can mount a Windows share on a Linux server. You
can have two different disk, etc etc. What you need is to redirect the
import folder, assigning "-importdir" option to the import.pl process.
(this cannot be done through GLI). Some examples:
Perl -S import.pl -importdir e:\docs\my_docs my_col
Perl -S import.pl -importdir /windows_mounted_share/docs my_col
2- The archive folder can be redirected too, to any other folder or
shared resource. In this case, you need to specify the location to
both process, the import and the build.
Perl -S import.pl -importdir e:\docs\my_docs -archivedir f:\archives
my_col (assuming you installed GS in c:\greenstone then you will have
the "root" folder of your collect in c:\greenstone\collect\your_col,
the import dir in drive e:\ and the archives folder in drive f:\)
Perl -S buildcol.pl -archivedir e:\archives my_col (this will only
put the archive folder in another drive, the import folder will be in
3- The index must reside in the same location where you have GS installed.
But there is another way to reduce space. You can notice that the
contents of the archive folder are "almost" the same of "index/assoc"
folder. So, if you are on Linux, you can make a link like index/assoc
--> /archives and then you get more space. On Windows this is not
possible, as far as I know....
It is like a puzzle!. With these examples you will be able to have
only the index folder in your 120 GB machine, just to serve the
Hope this helps.
