Where Are Configuration Files Stored?

Configuration files are normally saved in the Settings folder inside the My Documents\Source Insight folder.

Each user that logs in and runs Source Insight gets a user data directory inside the My Documents\Source Insight folder. Therefore, each user on a particular machine will have their own preferences stored separately.

Tip: It is wise to keep a backup copy of your global configuration file, which will end up containing all your customizations. Once you use the Load Configuration command, or make a change to the customization settings inside Source Insight, the configuration file will be changed automatically.

Tip: It is also a good idea to make a backup copy if you update your Source Insight software. Often, newer builds of Source Insight will be compatible with older configuration files, but not the other way around. If you should wish to revert to an older build of the software, it is best to use an older configuration file.
