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.


Time for change

Welcome to my new home.

After considering this change for a while, I decided to move forward with it because I think it will bring more useful content to the site. The problem with my other page was that I had to do everything by hand and I don’t have much time to spend on maintaining the code for the website. With a known blog and with lots of tools to help I can focus on what’s important, the tutorials, articles, etc.

One other change I decided to make was to remove some menu categories because I simply couldn’t maintain/update all of them. I think the other page was mostly visited by people searching for programming topics. If there is anyone interested in getting the other categories back drop me a note and I’ll do my best to bring them back.

I’ll keep my old page running in this address: for a while during the transition to this new blog format.

With this change I hope to post much more than only 5 times per year. Let’s see out it goes.
