How can I change the database location?
Posted by Olivia Rust on 23 May 2018 16:07

The default location where eM Client stores all your data is C:\Users\<windows user account>\AppData\Roaming\eM Client. AppData is a hidden folder, <windows user account> is the name of your logged in Windows account.

To change the database location, please navigate to the application settings under Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Storage, where you can change the database folder location. The change will be applied after you close and open the program again.

Please be aware that the existing data will not be automatically moved or copied. If you already have any data in the original location make sure to move the database folder while eM Client is closed. The data will load at the next startup of the program.
