Quite possible I'm overlooking something simple, but ever since making the BI5 jump.... I can't figure out where my alerts are stored. I attached a picture of some different things I checked.

When I go to the "save" location it's empty... If I right click an alert the "file location" is grayed out... The Allocated space for Alerts also shows as empty.

BUT.... my alerts are showing up so I know they have to be going somewhere...............

Alerts are just pointers to clips and were never stored anywhere except the database...the alert folder only holds high res images if you selected that option in the record tab - however this is generally a waste of space.

Excellent, Thanks for the clarity. Must be something I've never paid attention to till BI5.
