Changing temp location in FTK 1.81.6 in Windows 7

Problem:  Windows 7 handles folder browsing differently, so it won't allow you to select a folder when trying to change the Temporary File Folder from within FTK.


  • Browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\AccessData\AccessData Forensic Toolkit 1.81.6\Program" and open FtkSettings.0.ini in Notepad
  • Scroll to the bottom where it says MountPoint_1=
  • Change that path to what you would like your Temporary File Folder to be
  • Save the changes

To add multiple temp folders, add more MointPoint entries, incrementing each by 1 (ie MountPount_2).
The FtkSettings.0.ini file may also be in "C:\Program Files (x86)\AccessData\AccessData Forensic Toolkit 1.81.6\Program\" or "C:\Program Files\AccessData\AccessData Forensic Toolkit 1.81.6\Program\".
