BiblioTECH stores all of its information in folders under two locations – one for the executables and one for data. The location of these two structures can vary depending on the operating system and file system structure.


The default folder locations are:

Executable files
32-bit systemsC:\Program Files\BiblioTECH
64-bit systemsC:\Program Files (x86)\BiblioTECH

Data Files
C:\ProgramData\BiblioTECH
Note: Can be relocated to another directory.


Relocating the Data Folders on the BiblioTECH Server
Note: Please contact BiblioTECH Support before attempting to do the following.

BiblioTECH allows for the relocation of the data folders from the default location through settings in an .ini file.

Example: The base of the data structure is to be located under the folder D:\BTdata

  1. Open NotePad
  2. Enter the lines (ignoring the sub-pointers):
    1. [Folders]
    2. BaseData=D:\BTdata\
  3. Save the file as c:\Program Files\BiblioTECH\v8\BT8info.ini.
  4. Stop ALL of the BiblioTECH Server services.
  5. Move the contents of the original data structure to the new location, i.e. from C:\ProgramData\BiblioTECH\v8\ to D:\BTdata\.
  6. Start the BiblioTECH Server services again.


Please note BiblioTECH does NOT use the Windows Registry.
