iData Pro datafiles
contain your data, organized into records. Datafile file names end with
.id3. If you have previously used iData Lite or iData Mobile, you may have some datafiles with names ending in .idm.
NOTE: In the past, we've seen that some customers assume that their data is somehow stored inside the iData Pro application itself. This is not the case. The data is stored on your hard drive as datafiles.If you have used other versions of iData, you may already have some datafiles in an iData 3 Datafiles folder or an iData Pro Datafiles folder. In this case, simply select that folder when it is requested.
You can also create sub-folders within the iData Pro Datafiles Folder, and use those to further organize your datafiles. Sub-folders will show up as sub-menus in the Datafiles menu. Only one level of sub-folders is supported by the Datafiles menu.
If you need to put datafiles in other
locations, you should make aliases to those datafiles, and then put
the alias files into the iData Pro Datafiles
The iData Pro preference file is named com.idatapartners.idataPro.plist and appears in
<your user name>
or said another way: ~/Library/Preferences/com.idatapartners.idataPro.plistOn rare occasions, you may need to trash your preference file, so it's a good idea to know where it is located.
