The database path for ChessBase is the place where it will automatically install or create new databases. Also your games played on the chess server are store here.


The default database directory is My Documents\ChessBase. This is consistent with the Windows standard and should not be changed.


DO-IT    My documents\ChessBase\Bases

This is where your Mega Database and all other large databases will be installed.


DO-IT    My documents\ChessBase\Books

This is for the openings books.


DO-IT    My documents\ChessBase\CompBase

Here you will find the databases that our chess playing programs generate, e.g. for engine matches and when they automatically save games.


DO-IT    My documents\ChessBase\Internet

For games automatically downloaded from the Internet.


DO-IT    My documents\ChessBase\Repertoire

For repertoire databases


DO-IT    My documents\ChessBase\NoGames
