# Can I store my snapshots in a directory other than the snapshot directory in my project?

By default, dbt expects your snapshot files to be located in the snapshots subdirectory of your project.

To change this, update the snapshot-paths configuration in your dbt_project.yml file, like so:

dbt_project.yml
snapshot-paths: ["snapshots"]

Note that you cannot co-locate snapshots and models in the same directory.
