It looks like there is no custom database location at the moment which poses a security risk when users copy personal data to clipboard. I have a secure disk where I can actually keep the database if there was an option. I know I can backup to secure place. What I am talking about is the actual CHS database.

you might be able to do this already by editing the ConfigDir.ini file in your CHS program files directory, specifying an alternate directory for both your config files and your database.

if that doesn't work i will make it work for next release.

Mouser, there is no directory info listed there except for backing up.
