I’m curious about what opinions everyone has about where to put any default data directories for a Drobo App install? The SDK doc doesn’t really provide guidelines on this and I haven’t seen it in the forums. I’ve got my own opinions but would like to get input from the community and hopefully document some sort of best practice.
I see at least 3 different types of application data:
- the basic configuration data which should be stored in the app install directory.
- application runtime data that is only accessed using the installed drobo app and you wouldn’t want shared as a directory
- application runtime data that is typically accessed through the drobo app, but the user may want to share this data directly
This question also points out a big flaw in the DroboApp auto-install process that there is no way to prompt the user for input or confirmation on any install options. This means that the applications need to make assumptions in order to install and start correctly or the app must fail on install and expect the users to complete the installation.
