When I export a Comodo config file, I put it here:
\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Comodo
The problem is that Comodo remembers this location (apparently after the first export since it isn’t a standard Comodo location) and then DELETES the whole folder during an update, causing you to lose your exported config files!
I have learned to copy the config file I am going to want to import after the update to another location.
BUT I should not have to manually do this. Comodo update should not go around deleting a folder that it did not create in the first place w/o asking for user confirmation.
I think you are totally wrong - In the past Comodo has ALWAYS created and used that location.
I too had XP, and Comodo created at various times in the past, two sets of folders
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Comodo\Firewall Pro
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Comodo\PersonalFirewall
Both these parents contained subfolders and files.
The obvious and easy solution is a sensible location that does not invite unwanted attention.
\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\MySpecialStuffKeepYOurHandsOff
Well, Comodo ALWAYS deletes this location and NEVER recreates it on my system.
Regardless though, this location, which is typically a data store location, SHOULD NOT ever be automatically deleted!
