Most of the data is stored in the database. There are some files that contain data. In a disaster-recovery or migration scenario, the application can be reinstalled and the files copied back in.


SQL Compact (Embedded) Database

This database is the file aw_db.sdf, located here (default install location):

64-Bit Systems:

   C:\Program Files (x86)\AuditWizard v8\db\

32-Bit Systems:

   C:\Program Files\AuditWizard v8\db\

If you have installed AuditWizard in a different location, you can find the exact location of the database by going to Administration > General > Database Administration and reviewing the path in the Change Database section.

To back it up, simply copy it elsewhere.

SQL Server

A full version of SQL Server provides an automated backup option. Use the standard procedure in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

SQL Server Express

The Express version of SQL Server does not provide an automated backup feature, so schedule a recurring task in a task-management system to back up manually. Use the standard procedure in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.


The following folders contain data. Back up the whole folder:

   C:\Program Files (x86)\AuditWizard v8\AuditAgent
   C:\Program Files (x86)\AuditWizard v8\Scanners
   C:\Program Files (x86)\AuditWizard v8\Icons
   C:\Program Files (x86)\AuditWizard v8\Reports\custom_reports

The following file contains data. Back up just this file:

   C:\Program Files\AuditWizard v8\AuditWizardv8.exe.config
