In Windows 7 if an installed application attempts to write files in its application folder under Program Files, the files are actually written into a Compatibility files folder and in explorer you can navigate to this folder by pressing the Compatibility files button from inside the application folder.
In Windows 8 though I no longer see the Compatibility files button. Has this functionality been changed in Windows 8? Or is there some other way of navigating to this folder in Windows 8? If it is the case that there is no Compatibility files folder in Windows 8, how does Windows 8 handle the situation of an application attempting to write files to its application folder under Program Files?
