System.IO.IsolatedStorage Namespace

Microsoft Silverlight will reach end of support after October 2021. Learn more.

The System.IO.IsolatedStorage namespace contains types for creating and using a virtual file system. Isolated storage provides safe client-side storage for partial-trust applications. In Silverlight, all I/O operations are restricted to isolated storage and do not use the file system of the operating system.
