I would like to reorganize some of our drives which contain lots of SPM results. I know that I can not just move results folders (or the data they used) because the file locations are written in the SPM.mat structure. (We have SPM5 and SPM99 results.) One difference I see is that SPM99 writes the names of the beta files to the SPM.mat structure and the full paths for the input data. SPM5 writes the full path for the beta files and the input files. Therefore, SPM99 results can be moved while SPM5 cannot. In both cases though the input data cannot be moved.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Am I just "stuck" with the current arrangement of data and results?
