I bought a 500Mb Hard Disk to my computer and moved Citect to the D: drive with the file manager. I also changed the paths in the CITECT.INI file, but the project editor did not find any projects and it complained about missing .DBF files. I know that, what I did may not be the right way, but I think this is the way most people with do it. 

The best way to move Citect is to backup your projects, delete the existing Citect directory, delete the Icons and CITECT.INI and then re-install and restore your projects. This way will always work correctly with any version of Citect.

You can short cut the procedure as you have done if you know all the places you must modify. The one file you did not change is called MASTER.DBF. This file contains a directory of all the projects, including their full paths. So when you move a project this file needs to be updated. You should be very careful when modifying this file as you can stop Citect from operating correctly if you do not make the changes correctly. You should shutdown the project editor and graphic builder before editing this file and make your required changes.
