Storing Internal Data
The internal data used by the Scanning Station comprise the images of scanned documents, the instructions for separating images into documents and batches, and the parameters to be used for scanning, processing, and exporting images (batch types).
By default, the Scanning Station stores its internal data together with the application settings for the current user: %LOCALAPPDATA%\ABBYY\ScanStationRS\5.0
To change the default path, create a key in the Windows Registry [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ABBYY\ScanStationRS\5.0\Shell] "CustomDataFolder"="New_path".
If you use credential roaming, we recommend that you specify the following paths for storing internal data: %APPDATA%\ABBYY\ScanStationRS\5.0
Storing internal data together with the application settings in the roaming user profile will reduce network traffic.
Importing batches from earlier versions
When you launch the ABBYY FineReader Server 14 for the first time, the program asks you if you want to import batches created in earlier versions of the application.
Clicking Yes will copy the data from your old version of the Scanning Station (%APPDATA%\ABBYY\ScanStationRS\<old version>) to the folder used by the ABBYY FineReader Server 14 (%LOCALAPPDATA%\ABBYY\ScanStationRS\5.0).
Clicking No will create a new folder for storing internal data
Note. If you delete the folder where the ABBYY FineReader Server 14 stores its internal data, the next time you start the Scanning Station it will ask you if you want to import batches created in earlier versions of the application.
