Save keys database in Keychain accsess on thumbdrive
GPG Keychain Access 1.1.3
I'm trying to store all keys database on my removable disk and make the program use it from there, I read that I should move hidden folder .gnupg to my removable disc then make an alies to it on my harddrive, but this doesn't work because system says that you can not use a name like .gnupg because such a name is reserved for the system. But when I make "gnupg" alies to my removable disc folder gnupg the KeyChainAccess ignore it and create folder .gnupg again in case it was removed. Please tell me in details what steps I should make to make the program store and read all keys on my removable disc.

are you familiar with the Terminal?
If so, these are the commands that are required to move the .gnupg folder onto an external drive
If you're not familiar we can try to go through it step by step.
Hope that helps.
P.S.: I'll delete your other discussion with the same topic.
