Jon Hoffman created CB-13203:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Windows UWP shared Local Folder being removed
                 Key: CB-13203
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-13203
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: cordova-windows
    Affects Versions: 7.0.1
         Environment: When running on the Windows 10 platform
            Reporter: Jon Hoffman
            Assignee: Jesse MacFadyen
            Priority: Critical


We are writing an application using Ionic 2 for Windows 10. The application will need to share
data between different users on the same machine therefore we are using the shared local folder
to save the data to as described in the "Using Shared Local" section of this page: https://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2016/05/24/sharing-your-local-app-data

This method works great and we are able to write information to the shared local folder however
when the application updates, all of the files in the shared local folder are removed.  I
tested this by updating the Cordova-Sqlite-Storage plugin to use the shared local folder and
also with a proof of concept app (https://github.com/hoffmanjon/Cordova_Windows_UWP_Shared_Local_Folder).
 I did create a native c# application to see if we had the same behavior when we updated a
native application. When we updated the native app the shared local folder was not removed
therefore this is an issue specific to the hybrid application.

I put my proof of concept application that simply writes a text file to the shared local folder
and the application local folder that can be used to see how the shared local folder is removed
when we update the app. The repository is located here: https://github.com/hoffmanjon/Cordova_Windows_UWP_Shared_Local_Folder
and includes a windows plugin to write to the shared local folder. 

You will need to set a group policy to get the shared local folders working. In the in the
"Using Shared Local" section of this page: https://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2016/05/24/sharing-your-local-app-data
it describes how to change the policy and which one to change.
I have updated to Cordova 7.0.1 and built the proof of concept app to see if we have the same
issue as describe with version 6.5 (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-12928).  After
updating the application the shared local folder is removed therefore the same issue exists
with Cordova 7.0.1.
