Suggestion: Database treatment upon uninstallation   30 July 2019, 14:16

I think that not deleting user data upon uninstallation is a common practice these days, but today I was caught by surprise by networx's behaviour. I was about to change Networx's filter driver implementation, thought that maybe I should completely uninstall and reinstall the software. Turns out that the database (\ProgramData\Softperfect\Networx\*) was completely erased during uninstallation, as well as previous settings. I think it would be a good idea to give user choices during uninstallation about whether to preserve the database (it can grow quite large) or notify users about undeleted database and preferences.

Good point, we will add a prompt like this in the next release. It will pop up at the end of uninstallation:
