How can I move the Excire Foto default database? - ExcireThomas - 02.07.2020

If you want to move the default database of Excire Foto to another directory, follow these steps:

1. If you have not selected the default database in Excire Foto, first switch to it via "File -> Open database folder -> Open default database"

2. Quit Excire Foto

3. Navigate to the Excire Foto application data directory. You can find this under "%APPDATA%\Excire Foto" (Windows 10) or under "/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/excire-foto" (macOS)

4. There you will find the following files and directories, which you can move to a directory of your choice:

  • 1to1.exfoto 

  • previews.exfoto

  • thumbnails.exfoto

  • excire_foto.local.db 

  • excire_foto.local.db-shm (if available)

  • excire_foto.local.db-wal (if available)

  • backend.db 

  • backend.db-shm (if available)

  • backend.db-wal (if available)
You can then launch Excire Foto and choose "File -> Open database folder -> Select database folder".


If you are not sure, you can also copy these files first and delete them from the default database folder later.
