Silverlight and clearing its isolated storage

I’ve been looking all around for information about Silverlight its Isolated Storage. I was doing some tests with storing files and wanted to clear the isolated storage. I’ll repeat the same words for SEO purposes : clear silverlight isolated storage. 🙂


After I finally found the folder myself, using Sysinternals ProcessMonitor, I searched again on the internet if anyone had referenced the folder yet. Of course the one and only Mike Taulty did. How come these three English chaps do so much great work?

The word is that the isolated storage for Silverlight is cleared when the browser cache is flushed, and perhaps it’s because of the beta, but this wasn’t my experience. If you want to clear the cache, go to the folder below, find the specific file(s) and delete them there.

    During SL Development, our isolated storage provider spit out bad data after an exception. After the error was fixed, we were still getting errors because of the junk being reused.

    anyway in these folder it’s possible to find the full files, like videos, or only little cache files?
