Project Directories

When you create a project, you must specify two directories for each project:

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 “My Documents\Source Insight\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 data files are kept in your own user data area, and other users on the same machine will not be able to access them. However, you may use the same location for both folder locations.

To edit the project source directory location, use the Project Settings command. See also “Project Settings”.
