Workspace guide

This guide will give some information about the Breeze “workspace” and how the files and data are organized in Breeze. The Workspace is the location on your hard drive where Breeze will store all the files and data generated.

Choose and switch workspace

You can have one or several workspaces in Breeze, but you can only work with one at a time. When you start Breeze for the first time you have the default workspace folder “C:\Users\{user name}\Breeze“.

Press the :Menu: button in the bottom left corner to change the workspace.


Press “Switch workspace” to show the “Choose workspace” dialog.

After switching to a new workspace Breeze must close down and be restarted manually

Workspace in the file system

The name for a Study, Model, or Workflow entry will be the same name as the folder in the file system. You can change the name in Breeze to update the name in the file system. If you close down Breeze you can also change the name of the folders in the file system and when you restart Breeze the name has been changed also there.

In this example of the file system, the Workspace is “C:\Users\administrator\Breeze”

Recycle Bin

When you delete a Study, Group, or Measurement it will be moved into the Recycled folder. It is possible to manually move back the deleted entry, in the file browser, if it was deleted by mistake.

The Recycle bin can quickly start to fill up your hard drive. To clear the Recycled folder you can click on the “Menu” button and choose “Empty Recycle Bin”
