The online help describes where Awasu stores your data.

It is possible to override the default file locations and instruct Awasu to store the data files elsewhere.


Putting all users under a single directory

If you want to put the data files for all Awasu users under a single directory, create a DEBUG.INI file in the Awasu installation directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Awasu\debug.ini) that looks like this:

[Debug]
UsersDir=C:\AwasuUserData

A sub-directory will be created for each user and their data files placed in each one (e.g. C:\AwasuUserData\Dick or C:\AwasuUserData\Jane). The layout of each user's directory is the same as it would normally be except that the roaming data and local data directories are one and the same.

Putting a single user into a specific directory

If you want to put the data files for a single user into a specific directory, create a DEBUG.INI file in the Awasu installation directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Awasu\debug.ini) that looks like this:

[Debug]
UserHomeDir_XXX=C:\MyAwasuData

where XXX is the user's logon name. The layout of the data directory is the same as it would normally be except that the roaming data and local data directories are one and the same.

Running Awasu from a removable drive

If you want to run Awasu from a removable drive (e.g. a USB thumb-drive), it should be run in portable mode.
