The Data Directory for the Program
|Top Previous Next|
Starting in version 3.30 of the program, because DONATION no longer needs to be run as a Windows Administrator, and thus is not allowed to create or modify files under C:\Program Files (or C:\Program Files (x64) on 64-bit computers), all data files that are modified by the program must be stored elsewhere.
The directory (also called "folder") that was chosen to store all files that have to be modified is a subdirectory of your Windows All Users Documents directory, which unfortunately varies by what version of Windows you are running, and the language of your system. For English-language systems, the DONATION data directory is shown in the following table.
If for some reason you want to see what files are in that folder, you can do so with the new Tools à Explore Data Directory menu option in the program, which brings up a Windows Explorer or My Computer type window, showing the contents of that folder and its subfolders.
Please see Files Used by the Program to see which files are in the Data Directory and its subdirectories.
