  • Hi,

    can we able to encrypt all the storage files (.D, .S, .U etc) ?? so no one can open it and parse the JSON.

    kindly shed some light on this.

    Thanks,

  • you mentioned its json, so you must be using the toolkit then?

    if its the tookit, the source is available so you can encrypt the data before you package it in json.

    also, the files are in the Users folder which is not accessible to non-admins by default. if this is a temp file, it gets cleared as well.

  • Hi JuneT,

    Sorry, if My question is misleading.

    I am using Microsoft Sync Framework.

    It creates the files inside IsolatedStorage folder

    ex:

    (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\IsolatedStorage\...\00000006.A)

    and it can be opened using notepad and view the JSON formatted data. I wanna encrypt those data for the security purpose.
