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.


e.g.


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:

C:\Users\<USER>\hdbstudio\.metadata\.plugins\com.sap.ndb.studio.sql



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

      this hint saved me a lot of time re-creating my (not yet saved) sql statements after a forced windows-restart. Thanks!
