Performing Isolated Storage Tasks
[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
Three main classes are provided to help you perform tasks that involve isolated storage:
IsolatedStorageFile , which derives from IsolatedStorage, provides basic management of stored assembly and application files. An instance of the IsolatedStorageFile class represents a single store located in the file system.
IsolatedStorageScope is an enumeration that enables you to create and select a store with the appropriate isolation type.
The isolated storage classes enable you to create, enumerate, and delete isolated storage. The methods for performing these tasks are available through the IsolatedStorageFile object. Some operations require you to have the IsolatedStorageFilePermission that represents the right to administer isolated storage; you might also need to have operating system rights to access the file or directory. On Microsoft Windows NT, Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista, access control list (ACL) settings on the file can prevent you from accessing isolated storage. The Isolated Storage tool, Storeadm.exe, can also be used for simple store management such as listing or deleting all the stores for the current user.
