Alias and query history are written to various files in the .squirrel-sql folder.

The ‘default’ SQuirreL 2.1f created .squirrel-sql on the C-drive of the PC I’m using.


Sometimes I move from workstation to workstation.

I’d like my alias/query history to move with me so I don’t have to re-create it from scratch each time I use a new workstation.

I figured out one way this can be done is if I copy .squirrel-sql to the same location on each C-drive.


Can I copy .squirrel-sql to a network drive then repoint SQuirreL to this location instead?

Then I wouldn’t have to download .squirrel-sql to each new C drive.

Can I do this by modifying the path in user.home?

If so how??
