See more: C# WinRT
Hi :)

well, I like to write some Apps to learn more about WinRT....I only used databases and usual textfiles to save content which was given by the user (f.E. his adress information). Now I like to know if there are new or let´s say more modern methods to save user content, specialy in WinRT?!

I like to say thanks for all your help!

I'm a bit new to WinRT myself (who isn't? ^^)
But I think you can't share file between AppA and AppB (at least automatically)

However if this is the same app for the same user on different device you can save data in the roaming folder.

will get you a StorageFolder that will be synchronized by Windows on all device with this app!
Nice hey! ;)

Nope there is none.
WinRT even have limited file system access! :~ You can't just go and write file anywhere!

That said you can use some article on CodeProject here and use a NoSQL database?
Try RaptorDB[^]

Thanks for your help man. Well that´s REALLY weak from WinRT...
Anyway, how some Apps manage to get the same Data, like Login Informations to other devices? Like using the Youtube App in PC A, save the login informations and already got it on PC B?
