How can one examine content within app's LocalFolder ?

    Question

  • Hi,

    In WP8 development, there is a tool 'Isolated Storage Explorer' for developers to examine application's isolated storage folder? Is there any similar tools for Windows Store apps?

    Sorta need it to do quick verification of files and folders within the LocalFolder.

    Regards,

    Frankie

  • Find the path by examining ApplicationData.Current.LocalFolder.Path in the debugger.

    Open Windows Explorer.

    Type the path you found in the address bar.

  • You don't need a special tool. You can use the normal file system explorer or a command prompt.
