+Brightway2 will determine that you are starting it for the first time. You will need to create a :ref:`data-directory` - a writable directory where all data will be stored.
+
+    1. Click to open directories, and navigate to where you want the data directory to be created.
+    2. Check to make sure the directory path is correct.
+    3. Keep the default name for the data directory - ``brightway2`` - or choose your own.
+    4. Click to create and populate the data directory.

 All Brightway2 data is stored in a data directory, but the location of the directory can be chosen by the user. The data directory is just a bunch of subdirectories and files, so it is safe for backup programs or sync services like Dropbox.
