[Fixed] Notepad++ Portable Leaves Local Directory On Crash

I am using Notepad++ Portable v5.0.3 on Windows XP Pro on a SanDisk Flash Drive (U3 removed).

I do not know how I got Notepad++ Portable to crash, but when it did, it attempted to recover unsaved data. It did this successfully, the only issue is that it put the recovered data in C:\N++RECOV\File024.dump, not on my flash drive. Not a major problem for me, but I it might be depending on what was left behind in the dump file. I have not found a setting to change where to dump is put but thought this might really be a portable apps issue?

Thank you.

Hmm

I'm not sure Notepad++ provides any way to redirect this info to the drive. But there may be a way for us to do this in the launcher. I'll look into it.

I've updated your subject to make it easier for us to track this.

C:\N++RECOV folder

This may have been fixed before, but it's no longer fixed now, the folder in question is still created when you run NP++...
