Database backup, where is stored the file ? Où est sauvegardée la base de donnée ? (Backup/Restore)

Je cherche desespérement à retrouver l'endroit où la base de donnée est stockée après un backup par "Gestion des bases de données" (Odoo 8.0)... Merci pour toute info pertinente !

If you are running windows, the database is mostly in a folder called 'PostgreSQL' in the main folder of your Odoo installation.

If it is on Linux, you have to find out where your database location is. (parameter 'data_directory' in config file => e.g.  /etc/postgresql/9.3/main/postgresql.conf)

You can also use the back-up and restore functionality of the Odoo DB manager: YOUR_HOST:PORT/web/database/manager

Excuse me, my answer is not the one you are expecting. Normally the back-up is downloaded in a .dump-file.

Thanks for your answer, but my real point of interest is to know where exactly is downloaded the dump file (under windows 7) : Name and directory ?
