User Data
All user data and configurations for GoAnywhere are stored in a folder called userdata, which is located
under the GoAnywhere installation directory.

The default paths to the userdata folder for each platform is listed below:
n Windows: C:\Program Files\Helpsystems\GoAnywhere\userdata
n IBM i: /Helpsystems/goanywhere/userdata
n Linux and UNIX: /usr/local/Helpsystems/GoAnywhere/userdata
n Mac OS X: /Applications/Helpsystems/GoAnywhere/userdata

You should backup the GoAnywhere userdata folder (and its contents) in your regular backup
processes. It is recommended to backup this userdata folder at least daily.
