Located at %Appdata%\Leppsoft, which is equal to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Leppsoft. Soundpad stores a working copy of the current sound list, backups of the sound list and the stats at this location. It's the predefined location for recordings, too.
Located at the installation directory, which you chose when installing Soundpad.
The default directory is C:\Program Files\Soundpad or C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Soundpad.
As of version 2.4.6 the driver extension component UniteFx.dll (or UniteFxUpdate.dll in the Steam edition) is copied to %WinDir%\system32\UniteFx.dll, which is equal to C:\Windows\system32\UniteFx.dll. This fixes critical issues, which prevent Soundpad from working. The driver extension component is then loaded up by the system.
Each time you play a sound on the microphone the sound's play count is increased and its last played date
is updated. This helps you to keep track of often and less often played sounds, so you don't annoy your
friends by playing the same sound over and over again.
You can show the play count and the date when a sound was played the last time by right-clicking the sound list header and selecting Play count and Last played on.
The stats are saved at %APPDATA%\Leppsoft\stats.spl.
Stats are persisted beyond sound lists, but get lost when you move a sound file from one hard drive partition to another.
You can check for updates manually by selecting Help ▶ Check for updates from the menu.

The check is done once a day or once a week on application startup. When an update is found, you will see it in the status bar and can then start the update by selecting Help ▶ Check for updates from the menu.
