1.In the View menu, click Settings.

2.In the Extract temporary data to field, enter the path to the folder on your computer or click Browse, select the necessary folder, and click Select Folder.

3.Click OK.


The default path to the folder where temporary data is extracted to is:

Windows: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Elcomsoft\Elcomsoft Phone Viewer

OS X: ~/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Elcomsoft/Elcomsoft Phone Viewer


Please note that after defining a new path to the folder instead of the default path, the changes will come into effect as soon as the program is restarted.
