Where are the index data files of Copernic Desktop Search stored? Can I change the location?

By default, the index data files are stored in a per-user path like this: 


This ensure that all users of your computer have their own personal index stored in a non-shared location. If you want to move your index data files, you can do this :

  1. Open Tools (from the top menu)
  2. Options
  3. Indexing & Performance
  4. click "Change" to change index location

You must restart Copernic Desktop Search after changing index location and an update of your index will be needed.
