    Folders Used
    The release of Microsoft Vista (and after) forces programs to store their data files separately from that of the programs. Here are the typical locations:

    Data Files
    The location of the data files folder is stored in the programs folder in a file named "FPOConnect.ini." Simply double click on the file to view its contents.
