The System tab located on the Options window is where you can configure the locations you want to store data produced by CRD.



Below, you will find a brief description of what is stored in each of the locations listed on this tab.

Cached Data Folder: This folder is where CRD stores information which is used by event-based and other schedules.

Snapshots folder: This is where any Snapshots created by CRD will be stored.

Temporary Output Folder: CRD uses the temporary output folder to store temporary files. To automatically clear down this folder so that your PC does not run out of disk space, you can set how long the items in the temporary folder should be kept.



Cached Reports Folder: The cached reports folder is where CRD stores copies of your report files (*.rpt) and executes these copies. The copies are cached in this folder.

Sent Messages Repository (SMTP): If your organization uses an SMTP server for emails, CRD will use the sent message repository folder to store information regarding your sent email messages via your configured SMTP server.

You can also set CRD to convert the files to *.msg format for viewing in MS Outlook.

Note: If you do not check the box next to "convert files to MSG format", sent messages will save to this folder as .eml files. However, if you navigate to the Email Log in the System Monitor and click on one of the entries, the .eml file will be converted to a .msg file so that it can be viewed successfully.

Excel Output: Additional format options for your excel outputs can be edited here.



Validate Report Login Information: If you would like for CRD to validate the login information for the report the schedule is using PRIOR to exporting to the specified destination, check the box next to this option. 

Note: Enabling this option may increase the amount of time it takes for CRD to process schedules.


Congratulations! You have successfully configured your System settings. Now, let's discuss the Audit Trail.
