Cisco IEV archive file

Does anyone know the name and directory of the IEV file to restore from archive?
The situation is I uninstalled IEV to install IME and now need reports going back 6 months for a PCI audit. I've reinstalled IEV on a different PC hoping to use the archived files to run the report but can't figure out the path for the archives. I really need this info today for a client hence the urgency. Thanks very much for any help.

In the newly installed IEV, check at Edit  > Preferences  > Data Archival Setup, you should get the location. (Hopefully you hadn't changed this location earlier).

Hi Rajesh,
Thanks. Unfortunately in data archival setup there's no file location for the archives. However, I have been able to restore the files I need from tape backup located at Cisco Systems\Cisco IPS Event Viewer\MySQL\data\alarmDB. The archive files will either be in folder alarmDB or compressedDB.
Thanks again.
