Location of HANA Studio Temporary SQL Console files

Sometimes when I re-launch HANA Studio I occasionally get the following error:

” An error occured. see the log file C:\Users\<USER>\hdbstudio\.metadata\.log.”

This prevents me Restarting HANA Studio until I delete the ‘C:\Users\<User ID>\hdbstudio\.metadata’  folder, or doing something more drastic.

Occasionally I might have forgotten to save my SQL Console Files with proper files names when I last closed down HANA Studio.


Before I delete the .metadata folder and restart HANA Studio I need to make sure I take a copy of the temporary SQL files created the last time I successfully closed HANA studio.

The temporary SQL files are created here in Windows:


I hope this helps you if are also hunting for these temporary files.
