Moving data files

I have been contemplating moving the AM data and config files to a new location in my documents folder to make routine backup a little easier.  Are there any operational or security implications in doing this?

Dear Gwyndy.

If you are using the Professional version of Access Manager, you can move your Access Manager Database file (.xdb) using the built in facility. Go to File --> Database --> Move and then choose the new location and click OK. You are not able to move the configuration file, this must remain in place for the application to read it.

In the Free version of Access Manager you cannot move your files. By physically moving your files in Windows explorer in the Free version you will cause the program to not work correctly.

If you move your database file, remember to update your backup to include the new location.

Many thanks for your reply.  I have used the Pro version of AM for many years - still the best password manager that I have found. 

I knew that I could move the data file but hadn't realised that the config file has to stay where it is.  I will leave both files in their current locations and continue to backup from there.

It's not that it's not safe, it just won't work. Programs are installed to certain directories. That means that there are registry entries pointing to those directories.  Designer Indian dresses  If you move the program, it's still looking in the directories in its registry entries, doesn't find the files it needs and doesn't run.Data isn't installed, so you don't have that problem.

Moving data nowadays is pretty much easier than before. Sometimes, it will just produce error messages but definitely fixable. Easy as buying used cars dayton ohio used cars washington courthouse ohio
