Developers: Answers to your questions about Windows and Windows Phone 8.1 files and app data

To address some recurring questions about files and app data, Building Apps for Windows has posted a two-part series of answers that are relevant to Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.

In part 1, you’ll find answers to questions such as how app data differs from user data, how to store user credentials and what happens to roaming app data when an app is uninstalled.

In the second part, you’ll find answers to questions such as what file system locations an app can access programmatically without user consent, how users can give consent for other locations, and what StorageFile and StorageFolder objects represent.

Head over to Building Apps for Windows to find answers for those questions and more.
