    Please be more specific about your question. What exactly is the problem? You don't know which path to choose for your files? What platform are we talking about?

    i'm targeting Symbian platform,
    first question: is there a path i can create my app files on that will be automatically deleted when uninstallation??
    second: how to delete files created by application when uninstallation?
    hope this is clear now
    thanks

    This is a job for the installer and not for your app. You have to package your app in such a way that it cleans all the files you want deleted when it is being uninstalled.
