    The playlist cannot be opened because it is stored in

    I listen to streaming radio from this site. Recently when I try to listen I get this error.
    "The playlist cannot be opened because it is stored in a shared folder on another computer. If possible, move the playlist to the playlists folder on your computer."

    Here are the steps.
    1. Go here
    2. Click Tune in (64kb stream licensing) tab at top
    3. Click the windows media icon under FM quality (64KB quality)
    4. It downloads a temp file called fa64a.asx
    Normally the windows player will open and start playing.

    I have done this for a few years and now it won't work.

Where is the data from Apps stored?
Hi I'm using a App called Quicknote. I'd like to sync the notes with another computer but I don't find the storage folder. The same with other Apps. If I know the folder, syncing with Dropbox or something similar should be no problem. So, anyone knows the location? Thanks
