Where are Issue Manager attachments saved to?

Problem:

Where are Issue Manager attachments saved to?

Resolution:

When uploading an attachment to an Issue this attached file is not saved in any local location on the Issue Manager server. Instead the file is moved into the database in two tables:

dbo.IM_DefectFiles - file reference and path.
dbo.IM_DefectFileChunks - actual binary file data.

Therefore, these files will not need to be backed up separately before upgrading, though of course you should always backup your actual database before attempting any kind of upgrade.
