Is there anyway in SQL Compare 5 (Not Pro) to organize the comparison projects in folders?

Also, is there a way to change the directory where these projects are stored and read from? The default is C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Compare 5.

    Hi there,
    Currenly there is no way to sort your projects in the "Comparison Projects" dialog box.
    I am also sorry to say that there is no way to change the default directory away from
    C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Compare 5.

    I will put these issues forward and hopefully they will be included in a future release.

    Here is a suggestion of how to handle this.

    1. Let the default directory be an application option.
    2. Let the "Comparison Projects" read not only the .spc files at this location, but also the Folders and in each folder the .spc files there.

    Just a suggestion. This would allow the backup of one top level folder to insure that I won't loose anything.
