Folders Used by Ape

The Four Folders of Ape Software Applications

Each of the folders (Data, Files, Settings, & Web) is accessible from the File drop-down menu. 

Ape Software Folders

What They Do

The DATA Folder is the location where the access database (when using MS Access) resides.  Visit the Move Database Folder help topic for steps on how to move the Data Folder to a new location.

The FILES Folder stores the Attachments folder and the Labels, Reports, and Emails template folders.

The SETTINGS Folder stores the program settings that Ape Software requires to function normally.  This is the only File Folder that cannot be moved from its original location and every user must have read/write access.

The WEB Folder is the target location for publishing the reporting web pages.

Open Folder context menu

Settings Folder

The Settings folder is the only folder that cannot be moved.  The locations for the Settings Folder is:

Windows 7 & Higher: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Ape Software\Calibration Control

Although all Folders share the same default location as the Settings folder when the software is first installed, the other three Folders can be moved to different locations on the computer or local network for sharing and backup purposes.  The location of the Files folder can be configured in your program Options.
