Where are files saved?

Where are files saved?

Note: This information is available in the Tutorial. The program is automatically saving at all times to help avoid issues due to unexpected shut down. Different computers / operating systems tend to place the folder in different places. The Sherlock Project Folders are located in the following O/S-dependent directories:

Windows XP: c:\Documents and Settings\USERID\Application Data\Sherlock\projects
Windows Vista: c:\Users\USERID\AppData\Roaming\Sherlock\projects
Windows 7: c:\Users\USERID\AppData\Roaming\Sherlock\projects

where USERID is the user's login ID.

WARNING: Modification of files in this folder can result in abnormal behavior of the software.

Starting in Version 3.1, Sherlock project folders can be stored anywhere in the file system. This allows users to organize projects however they want and save archived copies using common Windows tools such as Explorer or WinZIP.
