When you are using Design Editor in a local mode (in contrast to storing everything in an Asset Storage cloud service), all files are located in the folders specified in the configuration files:
<appSettings> <!-- Paths --> <add key="DesignFolder" value="..\assets\designs" /> <add key="MockupFolder" value="..\assets\mockups" /> <add key="WatermarkFolder" value="..\assets\helpers" /> <add key="DesignImagesFolder" value="..\assets\helpers" /> <add key="PublicGalleryFolder" value="..\assets\images" /> <add key="UserDataFolder" value="..\userdata" /> ... <appSettings>
<Aurigma.DesignAtoms> <add key="ColorProfilesDirectory" value="..\assets\ColorProfiles" /> <add key="FontDirectory" value="..\assets\fonts" /> ... <appSettings>
Depending on your needs, you may want to configure these folders to be on the same or a separate drive with the web application. It can be even a network share. See the Load-balanced environment for additional considerations when you are storing files in a network.
After you have moved the data folders to a network location, you must set up correct permissions for them. A user account, under which Design Editor runs in ASP.NET/IIS, must have the read/write access to these folders.
It is also important to backup all folders configured above except for the file cache.
