Offline File Storage
« on: July 27, 2011, 01:31:00 PM »
Anybody know where the offline data is stored? I suspect that it is a browser issue, but it would be nice to specify if, as in the case of the machine I am working on, a drive partition is filling up and I would like to put it elsewhere.

I think I can answer this one  ;).  All Mission data is stored in the browsers LocalStorage.  Security restrictions only let browsers store data in a few places (cookies and LocalStorage), and generally don't allow the browser to access files on your drives.  You can learn more about local storage, here: http://diveintohtml5.org/storage.html.  If you are using Chrome you can see the offline data with Tools > JavaScript Console > Resources > LocalStorage.  (Note you need to be on a MM page).

If you are looking for the location of the map and offline web pages, these are stored in the browsers cache.  This will be different for all browsers and OSs.

Hope that helps.
