If I uninstal Contacts and re-install it again, I see old data is retained... I want to have it completely cleared of data.

I know we can SSH into the NAS (in my case, testing on vDSM) and we can find applicatio data there somewhere. Does anyone know where the package data of Contacts is stored? Then maybe I can try to delete it there and hopefully I get an empty Contacts again.

/volume#/@appstore maybe?

It is there indeed. But when I do a normal uninstall of the application, then this folder also disappears:

I install the package again, than the folder is also back. But also al the contacts data. So looks like its saved somewhere else...

Don't know it by heart.

@Shadow ...Did you find a solution. I pulled this from Plex discussions... maybe helpful here...
  1. @appstore - where the binaries are
  2. @apphome - where the metadata is
  3. @apptemp - where the temp files are
