Size restriction on ApplicationData.LocalFolder - for SQLite database RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Can someone guide me about size restrictions on the App data local folder for Windows Store Apps ? I am developing an application and I am planning to use the SQLite database.

    I would like to get a better understanding on the following

    1. Is there any restriction on the size or the number of files that can be created in the app data local folder? Will there be an issue if the database grows to several GB (10 or more)

    2. Is the app data local folder the recommended location to store database files or is it better to allow the user to pick a location to store the database ?

  • There are no restrictions on application data beyond disk space. It is the appropriate place to store application specific data. If you want the user to manage to documented then use a picker to let the user code where to store them.
