> In windows our server does not want to start because it want to write to CASSANDRA_HOME\.toDelete,
since we install to 'C:\program files\...' this is not possible when started under a non privileged
user. We were hoping that setting pointers for the data and log dir to a writable location
(somewhere under user home) would be enough to start cassandra but this component wants to
write to a path that we cannot modify.
> For us there are a couple of solutions:
> 1) the location can be specified using a system property like data and log dirs
> 2) this file is written to the data location
> Our current work arround would be to patch this class file but that is hard to maintain.
