IndexedDB App file Location


  • Hi,

    Where does the Win8 app save the indexedDB file? It's not found in the app container folder of the app.
    I need to make sure that if the app gets uninstalled that the database will be deleted as well.

  • The files are in C:\Users\<<USER>>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Indexed DB\

    The files are outside app container, windows should take care of deleting the database if the app which uses it is uninstalled.

    I am using IndexedDB as well, I want to make sure my database wont get deleted while my app is still installed.

    I have tried disk cleanup, it doesn't delete the database.  Is there any way to delete the database outside of my app while my app is still installed?
