Storing and backing up data

This chapter explains how data is stored, outlines configuration changes useful for setups where analyses will be run on large amounts of data, and gives general guidance on backups and data sizes.

Where Workbench location information is stored

The list of Workbench CLC data locations is stored in a file called model_settings_300.xml located in the user level settings folder for the Workbench. This location depends on the operating system being used. Please see User-level information for details. We recommend that this file is not manually edited. See Default Workbench data storage for information about changing default data locations for all users of a Workbench.

The model_settings_300.xml is created when the Workbench is shut down for the first time. Data location information is read from this file when starting up the Workbench again.
