    App installation traces befor uninstalling

    Here's the thing, I download a 100 MB app, install it save some preferences, then uninstall it. Days later, install it again: This is what chagnes, 1st: Didn't download it again, because it took 20 seconds to install so: Where are this files saved locally? 2nd: The preferences didn't reset so: Where are this preference or config files stores?

    I checked the WindowsApp folder on Program files where all the Metro apps are and it doesn't seem to be anything there.

    Any help with this?
