You could pick the BackupFiles Folder in CurrencyXchanger folder, but it is much better to pick a secondary physical drive (such as D:\) to make sure that the backup is done on a separate drive. It is always recommended to have the backup on a different physical drive as well as a remote drive (in case of a fire or theft of the system).
