Where does Safepots store the temporary files during the backup?

On Windows machines, the Safepots desktop software stores these files in the BackupCachefolder. The default location of this folder is:

 %Appdata%\Genie9\Safepots\Jobs\{6E820F39-1F0F-4C22-A9F6-5E7CAE6F6FA7}\Data\BackupCache

You can change its location by doing the following:

  1.  Right-click the Safepots agent (Icon) in the system tray (Taskbar) → Select the Open Dashboard option.
  2. From Settings → Preferences → Refer to the General tab → Click on Change Cache Drive button.
  3. Select the drive that you want Safepots to save the backup cache to it and then save the changes.

Safepots will move the files from the old to the new location, and a hidden folder with the name _SafepotsCache will be created on the drive that you have selected.
