Is there a reason why the backups of modified files are put in application data instead of originally it was a backup folder in the program files?

Because of how windows installer works, the backup and restore run under different processes with different credentials. We were getting errors when backing up to the Program Files location because some users don't have write privileges. Then we tried putting them in the users profile, but when running under restore, we we were having problems accessing the files, but I forget why. We got tired fighting with windows installer, so now we write to the only location on disk that we know is readable/writable by both processes. I agree it's a bit annoying.
