Where is my data?
Reloading Studio is a reloading data management software. Fundamentally, it’s here to help you manage data and keep your data safe. As such there are a number of features designed to assist users with all data management needs.
Where is my application data directory?
By default, on Windows, Reloading Studio stores application data in:
By default, on Mac, Reloading Studio stores application in:
(USERNAME: your actual login username)
From here on, we’ll refer to this directories as
Where is my actual reloading data?
Your reloading data, the database file and images are stored here:
Where is my application licence file?
Your software licence file (valid for your computer only) is stored here:
Can I change default application data directory?
To change the default application data directory, simply change the
Data Directory value in the configuration section of the application.
The licence file, ‘KeyFile.cr’ is unique to your computer and will not work/activate Reloading Studio application on any other computer.
Can I tinker with my data manually?
In short - yes. A slightly longer answer is, it depends how technical you are. The main database file is a plain-text SQLite database. You will need to know SQL and how to use an SQLite database editor software. Other than that, all you need to do is open this file using your preferred SQLite database editor (I use free SQLiteStudio for Mac, but you could even use a free SQLite editor plugin for FireFox; or SQLite Manager plugin for Chrome) and you are ready to go.
It's strongly recommend against editing the database file manually and we do not offer official support if something breaks here (although we will try our hardest to help you).
For example, you may accidentally change a relationship that impacts your data or you could unintentionally delete something that’s required for the application to run. However, this is what we do - we tinker. So, while we strongly recommend against this, to do it safely, you will need to follow a few precautionary steps first.
Exit the application.
Make two backup copies of your original 'ReloadingStudio.db’ file (just in case you delete one by accident, happened before...).
Open the original file in SQLiite database editor.
Make your changes in SQLiite database editor.
If required, save/commit your changes in SQLiite database editor.
Open Reloading Studio app and if you were successful you will see your changes being reflected in the application.
