Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a program that reads settings from a settings file in C:\Users\MyUser\AppData\Roaming\MyFolder\program.settings

Then I deleted the settings file, but the program still can read it although its not visible via either cmdline nor explorer (i.e it can extract information from it) ???

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Suspect the roaming profile is cached somewhere or is being recreated when you reconnect to the server - better question for serverfault –  Martin Beckett Mar 9 '11 at 16:04
Look at the eventvwr.msc on your system and see if folder redirection is taking place. I think it also tells you where the folders, such as AppData, are redirected to. –  ultrasawblade Mar 11 '11 at 14:31
