Where is my License Stored?
License details are stored at Wordbee in a License Server. Your Beebox synchronizes with this server once every 24 hours and each time you go to the Account & License page.
A copy of your license is stored on your server/PC inside the c:\Beebox directory. If you accidentally delete the license file or the Beebox directory, you will be asked to register for a trial once again. In that case please contact Wordbee support to move your license to the new installation. When you uninstall or upgrade the Beebox server, the Beebox directory is left untouched. Your license information is preserved.
