I've experimented further and found that by unchecking 
the "save all files in cache" box and leaving the Base Path 
blank (words "Base Path" are greyed out)WinHTT will send 
all files to a folder which it names the same as the 
project name in the root directory C:/

I can then move this folder to my Iomega Drive. Not a very 
elegant solution, but it will suffice.

You suggest trying 3.30RC. Will this run on Windows XP?
