Is it possible to create a PostGIS database on an external hard drive? If so, is there anything to be mindful of and what would be the host address to connect to it with pgAdmin and QGIS ?
Background: I am part of a UK wide team, all remote workers. We have a PostGIS db on a cloud server for our shared project work which with the offline editing plugin works fine. We all use locally stored OS Mastermap. We could all have a local PostGIS db and use OS Translator II to populate it with the OSMM we want and styled. But all our machines are 'locked down', so only the IT department can install software or change files on the C drive. So as an option I thought we could each use an external HDD for our OSMM.
