What is eMule?

Before starting with the explanation of how you can change the “Temp” folder and the “Imcoming” folder, let’s talk a little about this program and its history. This way you will be able to learn more about its tools and thus better apply the guide that we are going to give you later.

The eMule project was developed on May 13, 2002 by Hendrik breitkreuz as an alternative to the eDonkey program providing many more features than the previous one. The name eMule is an acronym for Electronic mule which literally means electronic mule as a reference to eDonkey which means electronic donkey.

In addition to the first developer, the project was joined by 7 more developers, which allowed the project to move forward and the source code could be published with version 2.0 in SourceForce on July 6, 2002.

This has allowed not only the company to make changes and improvements to the program but also the users themselves to have access to the source code to add new features and improve it.

As a curious fact, since the program was launched on the internet, it has been downloaded more than 300 million times according to the figures provided by the same official site and to this day it has been a great tool for all its users.

One of the features that this program allows you to edit is to be able to locate the Temp and Imcoming folders anywhere in your files and we will show you how to do it easily and quickly.

How to relocate the Temp and Imcoming folders?

The procedure you must carry out is very simple and with our guide you will be able to relocate these folders quickly and without any problem.

Before starting remember to have the latest version of this program installed, since the explanation will be based on that version, so if you have a previous one, the steps may not apply to you so to avoid problems make sure to update your program from the official page .

Step 1

The first thing you should do is run the eMule program , then go to the preferences section and within this look for the option called Directories within the program interface. This option is where you can manage the place where the downloaded Temp and Imcoming files will be saved.

Step 2

To change the download location for the Imcoming files or input files, you must go to the section called input files and press the folder icon to open the window so that you can select the new place where these files will be saved.

To change the Temp or Temporary files it is the same procedure and voila, all that remains is to press the accept button so that the changes are saved. And in case you want to learn more about temporary files you can read about how to clear temporary files or cache of Windows, MacOS and Linux
