Hi gang,

I am new to HEM and have been attempting to get my head round the FAQs and instructional pdf, ao apologies if my questions seem obvious.

When I go to "Configure Auto Import" and look at my "Current Import Folders", I see that they are all of the form:

"C:\Program Files\Full Tilt Poker\Hand History\Kenny Zoo"
(to use FT as an example)

However, when looking through the user manual it says "Caution: Do not add C:\ for any Auto Import Folder! This will severely slow down your PC”.

Can someone please explain to me what this is all about? Should I delete the "C:\" designation from my auto-import file paths?? If so, how will HEM know where to look? This is doubly-confusing because in the HEM manuals own example screen-shots file paths starting with "C:\" are used in the auto-import section!

Any help much appreciated!

Path entries like "C:\program files\ftp\handhistory" are fine
but not the single path "C:\" because then the Auto-Import would scan your complete C:\ Partition
This is meant in the FAQ.
