Backup question

Postby pulsepilot1 » 09 Feb 2016, 16:30

Hi, I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. The mlfe.ini and mfe.mdb are not where you said they were in the FAQ section. How do I make a backup of my Finance Explorer?

Hi pulsepilot1,
Good catch. Starting with version 8, the files are stored here:
%APPDATA%\Metalogic\Finance Explorer\

That expands to something like:
C:\Users\pulsepilot1\AppData\Roaming\Metalogic\Finance Explorer\

This change was done to conform to Windows standards. Backup programs will typically back up your user directory by default but not Program Files. So the new location means the data will get backed up will less effort.

I will update the FAQ to reflect this change. Thanks for reporting this.

Note that existing installs (pre-version 8) that are upgraded to v8 will keep the files in their original location (under Program Files) to avoid disruptions.

All the best,
Metalogic
