This file is very important, it contains all your settings and profiles because nothing is written into the windows registry to keep the program portable. Do not edit this file (or edit at your own risk)
The content of the Console window is stored in this file during exit. Please do not edit to prevent unexpected conditions

On the first run finefiles will try to create a directory called “ffpp” in the current directory containing some predefined profiles with the extension “.ffpp” (for “finefiles predefined profiles”). These predefinitions appear in the dialog to open a profile and are intended as examples for understanding the program or to use profiles from other users. You can delete these files and the whole ffpp-directory if you do not want to use them.
A second directory "fftmp" may be created in the current directory for temporary files. Please place no files inside this directory because the content will be deleted automatically the next time finefiles starts up.
