Where does FotoWeb Desktop store checked out files?


This topic explains where FotoWeb Desktop stores checked-out files and where it stores its control files.

Settings file

The settings file that is used by the Uploader, Office Plugin and the Adobe Extensions is found at:
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Fotoware\FotoWeb Desktop\SitePreferences.xml 


The settings file with server and proxy settings may be included in a deployment scenario.

Checked out files

Files that are checked out are stored in:
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Fotoware\FotoWeb Desktop 


When using the Upload tool, files are copied to “%TEMP%\FWDT” before uploading. Any metadata changes and client side resize is applied here.
