Any chance of giving the user the option to define where the IAM database is located, rather than having it default to C:\Investment Account Manager 3 Individual(or C:\Program Files\Inv...)?
There are several reasons individual users would choose to locate the database file somewhere besides the C:\ drive. I prefer to use an encrypted file container for all my financial, legal, medical, etc data - the thinking is that if a bad guy ever gained access to my PC, said bad guy would only be able to access said sensitive data if he/she could defeat the near-military grade encryption provided by a program such as Windows Bitlocker, TrueCrypt, Veracrypt, etc.
It appears IAM stores the database files at C:\Investment Account Manager 3 Individual\Data. The database can include things such as the account number for individual portfolios and/or passwords to online accounts for transaction downloads, and the data files do provide a picture of my various accounts and wealth if someone was ever to access them. I'd like to have more than the built-in encryption IAM uses for these items. All this could be accomplished if I could define the database location so I could include it in the encrypted file container, I recognize IAM provides an option to move the backup files off the C:\ drive but I can't see how to change the database location.
