Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 06 October 2019 12:58 PM

1. What is "Personal user Files"?

Personal User Files, or PUF for short, is a mechanism to save and restore any folder or file from the client’s hard disk.


2. Where are the PUF files stored?

PUFs are stored by default inside the Gizmo Service folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\NETProjects\Gizmo Service\UserData\)

You can relocate the folder by selecting a different folder path in Gizmo Server Settings File System Settings → File System → User Storage Path


3. Does PUF system requires windows shares?

Gizmo's PUF system uses a proprietary transfer protocol and it's operation is completely transparent to the OS.

This means that it does not use/require Windows' shares nor is it limited by Windows concurrent users' limitations.


4. How do i setup a PUF profile?


5. How does the PUF system work?

When a customer logs out, Gizmo zips and transfers all PUF folders connected to the applications the user executed during his session.

Next time the customer launches an app, Gizmo will restore the PUF to the original location, before launching the game. Launch procedure details


6. Does PUF work for guest users?

No. PUF only works with registered users (users that have accounts). Gizmo does not save PUF for guests


7. Can i disable PUF for a specific user group?

Currently there is no option to disable PUFs for a speicfic user group.
