Backup Agent data is kept in a repository, which is a database index file stored on the local drive of user's computer. Repository is used to reduce the number of requests which Backup Agent sends to cloud storages. Physically, the repository is an SQLite database file.

The repository file name is cbbackup.db, which is located on the user's computer hard drive. By default, it is located in %All users% profile folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\[CompanyName]\Data

or, if you use Windows Vista/7/8/2008/2012, you can find your database index file in the following folder:
