As I understand the Data File Storage system, the language files _are_
handled the same way as othe user data stored in the Shared Program
Data (SPD) Files location - like customizable Buttons, Graphics,
Frames, dictionary files, etc. TMG has to start out with a full
complement of those SPD folders and files, plus the Sample project, in
the program files location so it can set up and populate the Data
Files Storage locations.

When you backup your files, the strings files in the SPD folder are
backed up, not the strings file in the program files location. The
same for other customized SPD files.
