Always wanted to know this but never took the time to find out. Now i have: > By the way, do you know why the folder is called Binn? Why two “n”s? There is a bit of history there. Back in the 16-bit days, all binary files were stored under the Bin folder. However, as things moved to 32-bit and Windows NT came to the market, this new folder, Binn, was created to accommodate that. The extra n was taken from NT, which stands for “New Technology”. > From: [why-does-sql-server-use-binn-directory-instead-of-bin][1] [1]: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12039493/why-does-sql-server-use-binn-directory-instead-of-bin
