Answer Summary:
The files will get deleted from the logged in user as the file would be marked as keypath.

Try and set the component that includes the music files to never delete... then on uninstall they will stay.

The files will get deleted from the logged in user as the file would be marked as keypath(correct me here, if i`m wrong). It won`t delete the files from other users though.

I think your right akki.

I'f you want to remove the file from all users, you'd have to script it I guess. You could use DEL /S <filename>, which deletes the specified files from all subdirectories.
