I've developed an app with an SDF file as the database
The idea was to be able to backup a copy of this SDF file on a pen drive and take to a different machine, so i can access the data

however, i cannot find this file on the installed app
The app is developed in VS2010 and
i've just done the "publish wizard"
And selected "from a website"
"yes, this app is available online of offline"

properties on the SDF file say
Build Action: content
Copy to output dir: Copy If Newer

What do i need to do to get access to the data?
