Catalog location on my hard drive

Post by geraldmarsden » 28 Jan 15 20:12

I would like to make copies of my catalog from time to time on a second hard drive. Where in my system is the catalog located by default? Thanks

You can check by going to Preferences -> General Settings, then checking the box "show a login dialog on startup", then restarting the program. The location will be shown in the login dialog.

In Windows, by default they go in C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\IDimager Systems, Inc

If you use the item on the Tools menu "Backup Photo Supreme Data" you will be able to copy the catalog to a drive and folder of your choice without having to worry about where the working copy is kept, or to mess about with folders that are normally hidden from view.
