Storing Files in Sessions
/documentation/pages/Ref/Api/Objects/Server/Sessions/Storing files in sessions.xml
Session storage is able to deliver robust and scalable server solutions. In order to enable this feature, data intended to be stored on disk at the session level should use context.session.SaveDataAsFile(). This stored file can then be linked to using context.session.FormatFileDataURL().

Upgrading Session File Storage in Legacy apps
/documentation/pages/Troubleshooting/Upgrading to Alpha Anywhere/Changes in Alpha Five V11/Upgrading session file storage.xml
Prior to Alpha Five Version 11, developers often used the Session.Session_Folder property as a location in which to save session files and Session.Session_URL as a base URL to then link to the session file. Both of these properties were removed in Version 11, which means legacy code which uses them must be updated.
