Reviews for this release

It's a shame that this app is not still being worked on. It's a powerful tool but as many have noted it won't drill into sub folders. That's a disappointing limitation to what could be a 5 star app.

This is almost useless. You cannot explore subdirectories. This bug has been reported months ago at But has not been fixed. This has potential, and I will change my rating when I see a working release.

I like the tool - ability to view/add/remove files from IsolatedStorage. It helps us ad-hoc test our software without scripts to use isetool to pull/restore the entire storage directory. For some reason I don't have the ability to view child folders. I created a rather deep folder hierarchy and am only able to see the root. When I dump isolated storage to my desktop using isetool, i see all files

This is really excellent tool. Should be part of Visual Studio.

I've been waiting for something like this for months! Excellent work! Now I can easily test my project! Can't wait for drag and drop support
