    On a Windows 8 computer where does the Desktop Shearwater application store its log file data I cannot find it under the Shearwater file...I want to switch from one computer to my laptop.

    Hi carlito35,

    One way to do this is go to "File->Backup Database". This will let you save a copy of the database (.db) file anywhere you like. Then on the new computer, use "File->Restore Database". Or if the new computer already has some dives downloaded, use "File->Merge Databases".

    If you want to find the database file directly, use "File->Open Dive Log Directory". Go up one folder level from there, and you should find the "dive_book_1.db" file.

    Best regards,
