Server Process Window Shows Full Path to the Data File

Prior to Big Business 5 the path the data file listed on the Server Process Window was truncated to 32 characters. As a result, it was sometimes necessary to Search (or Find) for all Big Business Data Files (*.4dd in the Search) and determine the correct file by Size and Modified Date.

This Solution describes how to view the full path to the data file in Big Business 5.0 and higher. (5887)

Big Business Server shows the full path to the data file in the Server Process Window. If you cannot read the full path, resize the window, making it wider, until you can read the name of the data file.

Running Big Business Tools, and some backup procedures, will create a copy of the data file. It is essential to know which file is the current file, to verify the backup.
