What are the database files in C: drive "Users" folder?




Both my Monitoring database (in Server Administration Tool) and the Probe data storage (in Probe administration tool) are set to "C:\ProgramData\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\". However, found another folder under "C:\Users\All Users\Paessler\PRTG Networking Monitor\Monitoring Database" that contains database files that are identical to the other folder. Are these backup files? Can these files be moved? Can this path be changed/

Many thanks, Shoulun

If you have moved your Data Files and Monitoring database folder to another directory with the PRTG Server Administration tool, you should be able to remove the other database since it should only be needed in the path that is defined in the Server Admin tool.
