I've nearly completed my transition from XP Pro 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit Pro and have nearly finished updating all my saved print jobs to account for different file paths and a 64 bit Epson printer driver.

For a while I was having trouble accessing some print jobs I had previously saved in two different folders. These folders showed up in Windows Explorer under C:\ProgramData\ddisoftware\Qimage\Save, but I couldn't access them when I used Qimage Ultimate's Recall -> Select/Browse folders. Then I realized that this a Windows 7 thing, i.e. there are also Qimage files over in C:\Users\Public\ddisoftware\Qimage\Save.

I have now copied over my updated job files to that location and have started updating the few remaining files in the additional folders under \Save.

My question is, Which is the best location to keep these files? And if the C:\Users\Public\ddisoftware\Qimage\Save location is preferable to C:\ProgramData\ddisoftware\Qimage\Save, can I safely delete the entire Save folder (or anything else?) under C:\ProgramData\ddisoftware\Qimage?

Thanks.

Thanks, Fred. I did use this feature successfully when backing up my original Qimage files on my old XP machine. I will make the C:\Users\Public\ddisoftware\Qimage folders my default location.

Since Qimage.exe is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Qimage-U, I trust it will then be ok to delete all the ddisoftware sub-folders located C:\ProgramData\ddisoftware, yes?

I wouldn't do that!
That's like deciding that in your neighborhood you would like the sun to rise in the north.

Let Qimage work properly at max efficiency by allowing it to run normally. It is always searching for thumbs and Cache files...
If for some reason, your preferred location (C:\Users\Public\ddisoftware\Qimage folders ) is a network or external location, that's fine for a backup, but the operating location should stay as prescribed.

My preferred location C:\Users\Public\ddisoftware\Qimage folders is not on a network or external location, it's on my main drive, but I will heed your sage advice, Fred.
Thanks.
