No. App_Code and App_Data are used in ASP.NET applications. All Windows apps can use whatever folder they wish, but to make it more uniform, I use Application.LocalUserAppDataPath.

I wonder how the app knows what folder is the one that contains the data without a specific name like "app_data"?

Like I said, you can put the data where ever you like in a windows app.

And I don't need to specify which folder contains the data and Application.LocalUserAppDataPath magically knows where it is?
