Hi Anton

I updated from version 0.2.181 to 0.30.10 and as another user, HGLAB says

Healthcheck Errors
HgLab seems to be experiencing problems. Please resolve the following issues:
    Home Directory - Home Directory is not set

In Settings/General screen there is a texbox called Home Directory. What must write in this field?

Without this value HGLAB works (and faster than before!), so it seems it is not neccessary, but ..

    HgLab 0.3.x changes the way and where it stores its data. Previously, there
    were two directories that HgLab was requiring to operate - Index Directory
    and Repositories Directory. From now on, HgLab will only require Home
    Directory and will manage everything inside it on its own.

    So to successfully migrate to a new layout you'll need to create a new
    directory (which must be completely separate from previous two and from
    HgLab installation directory) and HgLab will automatically copy
    repositories from old location to the new one.

    And thanks for noting performance improvements: I really poured a lot of
    work into making HgLab faster.

    Thank you very much Anton, It worked.
    Can I delete now the previous directories?

    Keep them around for a couple days just to ensure that migration process
    didn't miss something. HgLab itself won't be reading from or writing to
    these directories anymore.
