EE auto update functionality.
Why does EE patching wipe every folders which does not include Assets/Bin/Projects? Eg my own folder inside Esenthel2SDK was deleted after the last update.(haven't used EE2.0 editor in a long time before the memory issue thread and I had to update then) just to find today my folder was wiped and gone, and files are unrecoverable, as it seems you wipe headers in bin directory after you wipe the other folders. This caused me to lose alot of files and work.

Hello,

Files are removed using FRecycle so they're put into the recycle bin.

Everything is removed except settings, Projects and Projects (server).

It is common practice to never store your own files inside other programs folders, unless they specifically allow you to do so (like EE does with Projects folders).

This is actually the only developer tool I've seen such a purge behavior from.
