Question: Why does WinGate decide to delete all folders within a hard drive if they aren't specified as part of the cache volume? Case in point: I had an external hard drive with a \WinGate folder serving as a cache, yet when rearranging the volumes (because said hard drive was failing and I had to move the volume to another one), I may have hit 'purge' and WinGate decided to erase all the other folders! Is that expected of WinGate? Or did I just stumble upon a bug?

it shouldn't delete any folders that weren't part of a volume.

There was a problem with an older version (a few years ago) if the cache volume was set to the root folder of a drive.

Which version of WinGate was this?
