Config password storage location

Overall summary:

I'm on Windows. I downloaded a fresh copy of rclone because I wanted to reinitialize the configuration. However, when I used rclone config it asked me for my encryption password.

Where was it stored in the first place? Can I delete/reset it outside rclone itself? If so, how?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

rclone config doesn't ask for new password after downloading and extracting binary archive

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
