Where are database files

I want to start backing up my stored comments etc. but cannot find the files. The manual says that they are "dbf" and "ctx" files stored in the Cforms/database folder.

There are no such files on my computer nor do I have a "database" folder anymore but my stored comments continue to run.

My operating system is Windows XP if that makes a difference.

Does anyone know how to find the location of these files? Thanks

I thought they were .std files. Mine are located in c:cforms.

Hope this helps.

Last night, I added a couple of neighborhoods then used explorer to search for files created at that time and came up with some *.std files. They were so small that I was not sure they were the right ones. Thanks again. I will start backing them up.

I think we're discussing a couple of different things here. The stored comments (or responses) are .std, but the database files are .dbf and .cdx and .fpt

I found those files. Somehow, the "database" folder and all of it's files became "hidden" files. Have no idea how that happened and I sure would not have intentionally set them that way.

Downloaded Ztree (file utility from the old days) and with it, it was easy to remove the hidden attribute from all the files and folders.

Now, I can add these files to my backup system.

Thanks for all the input.
