Where Files Are Stored?
These are some of the more important files used by the IDE:
|Type of file||Path||Location|
|.metadata folder (for personal settings)||$HOME/ide-5.0-workspace/.metadata||Host|
|Developer (The developer devuser home location to access your target system)||/accounts/devuser||Target|
|System||The entire filesystem (/)||Target|
On Windows, C:/ is used instead of the HOME environment variable or the C:/Documents and Settings/userid directory (so the spaces in the path name don't confuse any of the tools).
