## **Storing Index Data**

Index data is stored by default in the following path: `<SEARCHBLOX_INSTALLATION_PATH>/elasticsearch/data`


Windows path as an Example

To change the index folder to any other drive or path, make the following changes:

  1. Go to `<SEARCHBLOX_INSTALLATION_PATH>/elasticsearch/config`

  2. Open elasticsearch.yml in a code editor tool such as notepad.

  3. Give the path in the `path.data` field in the first line as follows: `path.data: D:/dataindex`

  4. Enter the path where you want the index to be stored. The path can be the same drive, another location, or another drive or mapped drive.

  5. Restart Elasticsearch and SearchBlox. After restarting, all indexed data will be stored in `D:/dataindex` or the path that is specified in elasticsearch.yml.
