I was wondering what's the difference between these two ways to store user-specific settings.
In isolated storage you're supposed to have the security that the path to the files is unknown. But MSDN still recommends not to store sensitive information. On the other hand, user-specific settings, maybe with default values in the app.config file, are
also stored in a randomly generated folder. In this case I imagine that you can encrypt the user settings the same way you do with the app.config file.
My question is, what are the advantages of using one method over the other to store user-specific settings?
