, what are you posting here?
- The directory autorec is not located in Windows directory. It is located in directory of used INI file which is by default %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit for UltraEdit and %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UEStudio for UEStudio. The name of currently used INI file with full path is displayed at bottom of configuration dialog Advanced - Configuration - Application Layout - Advanced.
- The directory autorec has hidden attribute set like directory %APPDATA%, too. Windows Explorer does by default not display hidden folders. This must be either enabled by a user or the user enters the path to hidden folder in address bar.
- The directory autorec just contains 1 or more subfolders with naming scheme %COMPUTERNAME%@%USERNAME%.
- This subfolder contains 1 or more *.RAC files which are binary files containing information like name of original file with full path and its temporary file containing latest not saved modifications and other data which are not readable for humans.
So this directory is of no use for anybody than UltraEdit or UEStudio itself.
The temporary files with latest saved modifications are located in %TEMP%
(or the temporary files directory added manually to uedit32.ini
There should be no %windir%\autorec
, except INI file of UltraEdit is located in Windows directory which is not recommended and not the default anymore since more than 10 years simply because this directory is by default write-protected for standard users. Damian
, you should really think about moving all configuration files of UltraEdit to the application data directory or any other directory and set environment variable UEINIDIR
as system variable to this directory in case of using multiple accounts and you want to use always the same configuration files.
