Accessing Application Data
Is Application Data another one of those "Junction Point" things?
I need access to application data to put back some of my trillian logs and other game data from XP.
Anyone know how or where its located.
Edit: Ohhhh okay its located in.... App Data now, right above Application data....
Is it safe to remove the Application Data folder link from c:\users\?
Id rather not have useless links in my folders.
Edit and yet another thing how do i get too cookies? The link in Users\ dont do nothing but say access denied.
Also Local Settings, How do i get to my temp files and Temp Internet files.

In Windows 7, the AppData folder stores user settings. A folder called Application Data exists for backwards compatibility with XP.The Application Data folder is just a junction point folder to the AppData folder and is hidden.The only reason that it exists is to redirect legacy applications, that are hard coded to look for that folder, to the new location in Windows 7 i.e. the AppData\Local folder. So its not a useless link and should not be deleted.
To see cookies, click on Start button and in the search box, type "shell:Cookies" without quotes. To see your temporary internet files, type "shell:Cache". To access the temp folder, type "%tmp%".
