Does PortableFilezilla store databse on C: ?

When I used to run Filezilla from my C: drive, it used to store personal informtaion in C:/users/Appdata folder.

Does PortableFilezilla do that too? Or does it only store my login usernames and passwords in its OWN PortableFilezilla folder?

Thanks

No, no personal info is left behind.

Same with your other multiple posts.

Oliver, I have accounts saved

Oliver, I have accounts saved in portablefilezilla, and it stores it in a file with my account address, login username and passwords.

So this information is only ever stored in the portablefilezila folder? It doesnt write a copy anywhere else?

It may leave some traces under a few circumstances

I migrated one computer from Filezilla (non portable) to Filezilla portable back when we were at version 2.x. At the same time, I started using it on another computer where the non portable version was NOT installed.

On the computer where a non-portable version was previously installed, Filezilla portable continued to use the Registry, whereas on the other one, I don't think there were any traces left behind. The behaviour remained the same even when I uninstalled the non-portable Filezilla; I solved the problem when I cleared the Registry of any entries left by Filezilla.

Not sure if the situation is different with version 3.

P.S. With Filezilla, I didn't mind the traces left on my computer; my main reason for using the portable version is to make sure all the contacts, ftp addresses... are configured properly anywhere.
