The change was pushed as:

I would like to ask especially windows users to give this a try when the patch is integrated into the next nightly.

This should happen:

- If your on a UNIX like system, you should see no difference (the derby default is then $HOME/.netbeans-derby
- If your on windows and start with a fresh configuration:
  - if there is an existing directory %AppData%/Netbeans/Derby it is used
  - if there is an existing .netbeans-derby in the old location this will be used
  - if none of the above exist %AppData%/Netbeans/Derby is used

If you find it fixed, please change the state of this bug to VERIFIED.
