Where is my SOLIDWORKS Electrical ProgramData folder?

Article by Justin Flett updated July 7, 2015


The SOLIDWORKS Electrical data files are stored by default in the C:\ProgramData\SolidWorks Electrical\ directory and include all the electronic data for projects, library symbols, templates, reports, macros and so on.  This default location is defined during the initial installation process.

If you are browsing your C:\ Drive and can’t seem to find a ProgramData folder it is most likely because your Windows settings have been set to not show hidden folders.  This is a quick fix, simply click on the “Organize” drop down in your Windows explorer and select “Folder and search options”.
