  7. If you want to convert FileCabinet CS data to the database format after adding the new data location, mark the Open Copy Drawers dialog after adding new data location checkbox.

    Note: If you convert existing data after adding a database data location, we recommend that you also rebuild folder links. This ensures that documents are correctly associated with user-defined folders after being converted to the database format.
