Project File Storage

Project Settings for each project specify two folder locations:

Project Data Directory - this is where Source Insight stores its project data files. For example, the .pr file is stored here. By default, Source Insight creates a project data directory inside the Projects folder when you create a new project.

Project Source Directory - this is the main location of your project source files. In earlier versions of Source Insight, this was called the project root directory.

By maintaining these two separate folder locations, you can store your Source Insight data separate from your source files. Furthermore, your Source Insight project files are always kept in your own user data area, and other users on the machine will not be able to access them. You are still free to use the same location for both folder locations.

To edit the project source directory location, use the Project Settings command.
