File Setting Question

[expired user #3289]'s profile image [expired user #3289] posted 14 years ago in Import/Export Permalink
Traditionally, Heidisql was exporting database files to C:\Program Files\HeidiSQL\. But recently, I noticed that they were, instead, being exported to another directory.

How can I get Heidisql to export my database files to C:\Program Files\HeidiSQL\, again?

That was never the case, and should not be, as C:\Program Files\... is not a proper place to store any data files.

Just select your favorite directory in the "Filename" selector.

You're right about the file not belonging in the program files directory.

When I first started using Heidisql and until yesterday, the program was just depositing the files there.

So, I let it go, instead of 'tempting fate', so to speak, because I had some bad experiences from telling other programs what to do.

But, you're right.

So, I created a new directory under My Documents and things seem to be working fine, now.

Thanks.
