is ApplicationDataContainer data persisted across app re-installation?

    Question

  • I am making use of the ApplicationDataContainer/ApplicationDataCompositeValue to persist data across app launches and sync across devices and hence using the applicationData.roamingSettings. However one thing that I noticed is that the settings value seems to persist across app uninstall on the same device.

    install app, do whatever to persist data, and uninstall app, and reinstall, when the app runs it seems to pick up these values from earlier installation which is something that I wouldn't be expecting.

    Also, is there a physical location that I can navigate and check for these values? where exactly is the location for saving these values?

  • If the data roams then it can roam back the local system when the user reinstalls the app.

    Roaming data is the only way i think

  • what about the location? Is it possible to see the data? where it's stored atleast if not in a readable format?
