It’s a very bad idea to save any data inside the folder of an application. The mentioned directory is the equivalent of saving data inside Program Files. There’s a good reason that Windows got a user folder as early as Windows 95 (“My Documents”). User files, applications (and application data) are meant to be separate.

Since Atom’s application folder contains the version string, it changes with each update. Old application folders are deleted.
