How to move Data folder to different location

How to move Data folder to different location
Please note, it is no longer work for Windows 10 !
Data directory
The data directory is the location where UltraNote data files are stored, including the wallet data file.
Default Location
Go to Start -> Run (or press WinKey+R) and run this:
UltraNote data folder will open. For most users, this is the following locations:
C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application data\UltraNote (XP)
C:\Users\YourUserName\Appdata\Roaming\UltraNote (Vista,7,8)
"AppData" and "Application data" are hidden by default.
You can also store UltraNote data files in any other drive or folder.
If you have already downloaded the data then you will have to move the data to the new folder. 
If you want to store them in D:\UltraNoteData then click on "Properties" of a shortcut to ultranotewallet.exe and add -datadir=D:\UltraNoteData at the end as an example:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\UltraNote\ultranotewallet.exe" -datadir=d:\UltraNoteData
Start UltraNote wallet, now you will see all the files are created in the new data directory.
By default UltraNote will put its data here:
You need to do a "ls -a" to see directories that start with a dot.
Ubuntu users can create a desktop shortcut by first browsing to the /usr/bin/ directory. 
Right-click on the ultranotewallet file, then select the “Copy” option. Right click on the desktop and select “Paste”. 
This places a shortcut on the desktop. To direct this shortcut use the datadir option, right click, select “Properties”, 
then replace the command field with ultranotewallet -datadir={path}, where {path} is the fully qualified path to the new data directory. 
Double clicking the resulting shortcut starts UltraNote with the custom data directory.
