Subject Re: [firebird-support] Best location to store FDB file?

My fingers were faster than my mind :)
There is another problem with c:\documents.... Ask your normal users
what they do before reinstall. I guess they will backup documents and
other data, but they completely ommit that APPDATA location. So I would
recommend to store database into the folder specially made for this -
eg. under the root c:\db\.
