Default Remembering position of video files / DVD - unnecessary duality

When the option for storing information abut point of playback for more that just one movie is enabled, it seems that BS.Player stores the same info in two places

Information about at what exact point was a particular DVD closed is stored in

C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\BSplayer PRO\DVDdata

Every DVD played gets its own file, for example "dvd-3894430869545873004.sav". And if you delete it, then the information is lost

But there is also that file "bsplay.sav" stored in

C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\BSplayer PRO\

It has information about files like MKV / WMV / AVI but also about "VIDEO_TS.IFO". So does this also store info about the point at which DVD playback was ended? Probably not, because after deleting this file, the info about that is apparently taken from a particular DVD SAV file from that "DVDdata" folder [because after deleting "bsplay.sav" you simply loose instructions for MKVs and others, but not for your DVDs]

So why can't there be one method of storage? Now to clear the history, I have to both delete the "bsplay.sav" file and files stored in "DVDdata" folder- and that is not all

As those DVD files in "DVDdata" are written in a different way than the content of a single "bsplay.sav" file, so could those MKVs and others also be stored as a separate entries [files] written in their own way. And here is the funny part: apparently they already are. Because there is also this folder

C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\BSplayer PRO\cache

with MPOS files, created for every video file that was played [but not for IFO files]

So what is the point of having
A] DVDdata files
B] bsplay.sav file
C] MPOS files
at the same time?

And how is the user suppose to remember to clean BS.player history in 3 different places?
