Changing the backup location

You can change the folder that Dorico Pro uses to store project backups. By default, Dorico Pro uses the Backup Projects folder inside your Dorico Projects folder, whose default location is in the Documents folder for your user account.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-, to open Preferences.
  2. In the category list, click General.
  3. In the Files section, click Choose beside the Project backup folder field to open the File Explorer/macOS Finder.
  4. Locate and select the folder where you want to save project backups.
  5. Click Select Folder (Windows)/Open (macOS) to insert the new path in the Project backup folder field.
  6. Click Apply, then Close.


The default folder for project backups is changed. If the folder specified does not exist, Dorico Pro creates it.
