If you use NeatWorks by the Neat Company, you may be wondering where it actually stores your data.
Once you have scanned your documents in, it puts them in its own proprietary database, but where that is depends if you are running Mac or Windows.
NeatWorks will store your data in the following location:
C:\ProgramData\The Neat Company\NeatWorks
I don’t believe that it is possible to change that, but you can use a program like Junction to trick NeatWorks, if that is something you want to do. For example, you may (or may not) want to try putting it on Dropbox.
NeatWorks on the Mac is a bit more flexible. You can have a number of different cabinets (aka data files) and put them wherever you want.
To change your default cabinet, go to NeatWorks > Preferences and on the General tab there is a section for the Default Cabinet.
If you are in a cabinet and can’t remember where you have stored it, the easiest way to find out is to hold down Command and click the little proxy icon beside the name of your data file at the top of the window, like so:
There you go, there are the locations of your NeatWorks data. Now make sure they are backed up!
