I have my machine set up so that it looks for its default projects directory on an internal F: drive while saving preferences to the default C: location. I have changed my preferences to animate at NTSC 30 fps instead of the default 24 fps and made various other changes. All fine and dandy, but when I reload Maya the preferences are right back where I started and I have to do this all over again. This reliably occurs on every version I’ve used since about 8.5.
