How to delete saved data on your UWP application

During development is often useful to delete the saved data. Here are a couple ways you can accomplish this task:

  • You can try to uninstall your app and reinstall it

Another alternative is:

  • Go to %localappdata%\Packages\<packageID>
    • Note: “%localappdata%” is “%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local”. For example c:\users\rick\AppData\Local
  • Search closely for your file names under LocalState/RoamingState and delete them. Double check that other folders don’t have your files either.
