Hey there.
I always wanted to know, what other people think about saving data.
What do you recommend? Saving to binary files, database, other types of saving?

For this application, I get a token by an API per user ONE time and I can use it as long as I want.
I think the maximum amount of user per machine (the user/token-pairs I have to save) will be 10 users, so not very high.

Thanks for helping!

Honestly, this would be dictated by your application requirements. Does the user request the token in the app? Is it supplied by an administrator? Is it forever linked to that user? Do they need to recover THAT token if the machine is wiped out and rebuilt? Can they request a new token if it's lost? Blah, blah, blah, ...

Where you store it would be dictated by the answers to those questions, and possibly more.
