Where in the filesystem is the Local History for Android Studio project files stored?

Issue

I’m looking for the location within the file system where the “Local History” for my project files in Android Studio is actually stored (the list you get when you right click on a particular project file and do Local History->Show History). I am wanting this for backup purposes, etc.

For reference, I’m using Android Studio 1.1.0 on Windows 8.1. I didn’t see that anyone else had asked this question, and I tried to find the answer myself, but without any luck.

Solution

In Windows, this is the default location for Local History:

C:\Users\YourName\.AndroidStudio\system\LocalHistory
