On the Settings tab, you can see the MyQ database folder location.

Depending on the type of the database, the Data folder either does, or does not contain the MyQ database: the MyQ Embedded database is part of the folder, whereas the SQL database is stored on the SQL server. Besides the MyQ database, the folder contains additional files with data used by the MyQ system, such as reports, certificates or the config.ini file.

The default folder path is:
C:\ProgramData\MyQ Central Server\

Under normal circumstances, there is no need to change the location. In case you have to do it, for example when there is not enough space on the system disk, follow the instructions below:

  1. On the Settings tab, in the respective section, click Change Location. The Change folder location
    dialog box appears.

  2. In the dialog box, under New folder, enter the path to the new folder or click Select to browse and find the new folder location.

    Setting the new data folder path
  3. Under Change Operation, select the required method of existing data relocation, and then click Change
    Location. The folder is moved to the new location.

    Data relocation options


If you relocate your Data folder to a network drive, be aware that Apache or Firebird service cannot access network drives created by the Administrator or other users. The network drive needs to be created by the "nt authority\system" user. You can do this using this guide: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/182750/map-a-network-drive-to-be-used-by-a-service/4763324#4763324 or it should work when you mount the drive on Windows startup.
