Change bmanager_lite.sdf path

I want to change the path of specific file and get pointed to another location:

File: bmanager_lite.sdf

From this folder: C:\Users\****\Documents\SDL Trados Business Manager\TradosDatabase

To this folder: C:\Program Files\Trados

I'm not talking about making backup, only change the location of the file.

  • Hello, Mikel,

    Currently TBM Lite does not allow to change path to the database, so it fixed to Documents folder. Also, Microsoft does not recommend using Program Files folder for storing data, only for installing applications. To write to Program Files, an application must be running "As Administrator". So, we'll consider adding an option to change location of database file, but anyway I don't recommend to move it to Program Files.
