File Management and Distribution

Zim uses the operating system's file management system to store entity sets, relationships, programs (source and compiled), database definitions, ZIM directories, and work files. By default, all files are stored in the same area of your file system. You can however, change the locations of the various types of files by, for example, moving the files to different disks, to improve the performance of your application. Zim provides methods for controlling the files that it uses.
