Changing Repository Directories?

Hello,
Intellij is saving all of its "Vault"/VCS information in this directory
c:\Documents and Settings\csamuels\.IntelliJIdea

... to the tune of 2.5Gb

My C drive keeps running out of space... how can tell Intellij to save this on my D: drive?

Thanks!
Corey

Edit idea.lax and/or idea.bat in your idea/bin dir and change the
idea.system.path setting.

Edit bin/idea.lax file -Didea.system.path="xxx" property to a sutable xxx
value like -Didea.system.path="D:\idea\system"
