Android :: Writing To SD Card - Deleting Files On It - Number Of Files Relevant

Mar 19, 2009

I wrote an app that downloads web sites and all their assets (images/stylesheets) to "disk" and therefore stores lots of small files on the SD card.

Sometimes it fails to delete large amounts of files and afterward the file system is r/o. To analyze that behavior I tried to do the removal of the files by hand and then go from there. But that already failed.

localhost:~ mkamp$ adb -d shell mount [.. some mounts ..] /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /sdcard vfat rw,dirsync,nosuid,nodev,noexec,uid=1000,gid=1000,fmask=0711,dmask=0700,code­page=cp437,iocharset=iso8859-1,utf8 0 0 --> R/W

Last login: Wed Mar 18 19:41:49 on ttys005 localhost:~ mkamp$ adb -d shell rm /sdcard/newsrob/a* [.. minutes of silent deletes ..] rm failed for /sdcard/newsrob/a2aade03616c28b30_113.png, Read-only file system localhost:~ mkamp$

localhost:~ mkamp$ adb -d shell mount [.. some mounts ..] /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /sdcard vfat ro,dirsync,nosuid,nodev,noexec,uid=1000,gid=1000,fmask=0711,dmask=0700,code­page=cp437,iocharset=iso8859-1,utf8 0 0 --> R/O now

The log contained nothing but the usual gc output and random WiFi status changed mumbo jumbo.

Anybody else seeing this behavior?

There were 6.500 files in that directory. Might that be the problem? I don't access the files with queries, I always have the exact name.

HTC Desire :: Checking Files - Deleting Files - Making Space

May 7, 2010

How do you go about checking what is stored on your phones memory and deleting content? For example I used dropbox and downloaded a 7mb photo onto my phone. Can't find it in the photos app or anywhere else. Going into SD & phone storage under settings doesn't do anything. It says I have 70mb available space under phone storage but you can't click on that to get any further info. Same goes for the SD card options.

Motorola Droid :: Deleting A Google Backup?

Nov 17, 2009

Can't seem to find an answer to this. I had to get a replacement Droid (1st one had a very loose screen) and really wanted to have a fresh start with the new phone - no apps, etc. Since I had the backup thing checked on the 1st phone, the 2nd phone reloaded all the apps from the 1st phone. I've tried the various resets (with backup turned off), but nothing gets me back to a blank, clean phone.

Keep in mind that I'm not talking about the Contacts or Gmail being pulled in (that's fine) - I just don't want the apps & settings from the 1st phone. Uninstalling the apps doesn't quite get me to a clean install. Anyone know of a way to delete/turn off that backup that's sitting in the Google cloud?

General :: Deleting Programs Through Titanium Backup Reboots HP Slate 7

Sep 7, 2013

So I went and did things the hard way (Asian Level Root).

Root was obviously a success, but now I can't get rid of 2 of 3 of the Chinese programs that got installed. The only program I was able to get rid of was the Shuame market app.

Trying to remove/uninstall any other programs ( KingUser.apk and PinyinIME.apk, et al) via Titanium Backup just results in a screen depicting Andy on his back, front open, big red triangle on top of him.

The tablet does reboot by itself after a minute, but the programs remain.

I did reset the tablet to no effect.

Specs: HP Slate 7, Android 4.1.1, Kernel 3.0.8+, Rooted (obviously).

And what about the folders left behind from downloaded apps? Can i simply delete those while tethered?

HTC Magic :: Error Deleting Files - Sdcard

Dec 10, 2009

Currently I am having an issue with my SD card storage.

It started when iMusic told me i was out of space, on a 4gig SD card when i had mayb 5 songs on the phone!

So i went to my astro manager file manager to delete some files just to see. i keep getting "error deleting files" on anything i try to delte, ive taken the card out rebooted etc etc.

It makes me think the card may be locked? as its not even letting me save anything to it now.

Should i just root the dang thing to avoid problems like this?

I can delete files by going into the generic "music" app and long touching the song and selecting delete.

Android :: Deleting Files Created With File Output Stream

Jul 20, 2010

I'm developing for the Android platform.

My app creates a temp file with a simple call to:

FileOutputStream fos = openFileOutput("MY_TEMP.TXT",Mode);

It works fine because I can write to it and read it normally.

The problem is that when I exit from the app I want to delete this file. I used:

File f = new File(System.getProperty("user.dir"),"MY_TEMP.TXT");
f.delete()

But it always returns false and the file is not deleted.
I have tried

File f = new File("MY_TEMP.TXT");
f.delete();

And it does not work either.

General :: Phone Deleting Media Files Unwanted And Automatically

Aug 3, 2013

I wanted to show a picture to a friend of mine. Opened my gallery > ehm, what is going on here? > there were no photos images anymore.

First I thought that the gallery app got some problemes, rebooted my phone, still the same. Looked up the folders with Solid Explorer, well ... all files got definitely deleted.

I searched for this here on xda and google. Well, all I found out was that it could be ROM related, or that it could have something to do with RomManager (haven't installed it though). The curious thing is that the *.jpg and *.mp4 files got deleted from all folders and subfolders, not only from DCIM and even from the sd card.I'm not here for any recovery attempts, have done this already

Well this is not all. I've got some *.avi files on my phone (internal and external storage). Theses files were deleted too. BUT not at the same day as the other media files (*.jpg and *.mp4).

So this is the pre story. Now I wanted to know what can I do to discover what is causing this problem, because what's next? Is my phone deleting all my files in a few days?For me it seems like a script that is searching the whole device for media files and deleting them. (malicious?)My thoughts were:to smali all applications and try to find out if a app is causing this to analyze logcats.Well, These options seems to be very long-lasting,

I haven't isntalled any apps or updates the last two weeks so I think there are no problems with apps and therefore will not list them. phone is deleting media files two days ago it deleted *jpg and *.mp4 files from internal and external storage and from all folders (not only DCIM) today it deleted *.avi files from internal and external storage could it be a malicious script that is crawling my phone for those files?

Samsung Moment :: Error Saving - Deleting Files And Browser Downloads

Sep 4, 2010

Some time ago...I estimate a week at most, I received an error when simply saving a file from my Browser, stating there was not enough space to do so. Knowing my phone had mre than adequate space, I presumed it was just an error with my browser.

Trying again with a different internet browser, I was met again with the same dilema. To make matters worse, I cannot permanently delete picture files from the default viewer on my phone. Queerily, I can delete them, only to have the pictures return hours later. To make my situation more unusual; Upon viewing the SD card mounted on my laptop, I can move, add & delete any form of files with ease. Even saving/deleting other files using different apps (Videobox, for example) gives me no hassle whatsoever.

One solution I'm willing, but at the same time reluctant to try is to reset my phone entirely to it's factory default setting (prior to backing up all of my SD card's data, of course)

HTC Desire :: Backup Files

Sep 23, 2010

I have an old official backup file from my old HTC Desire. sdcard/backup/HTC Desire

This is not a clockworkmod backup, its an official HTC backup)

I sold my old phone and bought a new one with an LCD screen.

I want to know if its possible to get my old text messages back etc.

My new phone is rooted, the old one was not.

I thought it might be as simple as just putting the HTC desire folder in the appropriate folder on my new SD card and the resetting the phone to factory. I was expecting to be prompted to restore my messages on bootup. But when I did this it only pulled a few SMS' from my SIM card and nothing from the backup folder.

Is there any software out there that will let me at least read through my old backup file? Third party desktop software even?

General :: Restore Files From Nandroid Backup?

Mar 27, 2014

I did a Nandroid backup (system, data, etc. using CWM) and a Titanium backup (user apps), wiped my phone, and installed a new ROM.

Q: Does a Nandroid backup include the /ProgramData/Language/ folder?

I'm trying to restore files I 'hid' using the Hide It Pro app. A developer blog post mentions that this folder is the 'vault location'. As a result, I'd like to find this folder and restore it if possible.

A Titanium Backup restore of the Hide It Pro app+data didn't of course work due to this. I'd like to avoid restoring everything from the Nandroid backup if possible and just restore the individual folder. I have of course tried looking through the folders and files to find it, to no avail.

Samsung I7500 : Files Of Nandroid Backup On Windows

Jul 29, 2010

I have done several Nandroid backups during Installation of Froyo Nightly build. complete clean phone, phone with main settings adjusted, phone with applications, etc.

All well and fine, but, unorganized as I am, I don't know anymore which is which. I believe that, If I can see a lsit of the files in each .img file, I could figure it out. How do I look into those files?

The answer to that question, at least for the data.img and system.img files, is a small tool called unyaffs. A compiled binary for windows of this file is available at http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XMGZSYOM

Put the unyaffs.exe and the file.img files in a new folder, open up a terminal window (windows-run-cmd), navigate to the folder where the files are and type: unyaffs file.img.
All the files of the image are than extracted to the folder you are in.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Way To Backup - Copy System Wallpaper Files

Dec 9, 2009

After a hard reset on my first Hero, the factory/system wallpaper files disappeared. Thereafter, I was unable to set the background for the lock screen to anything but the default. When I go to set lock screen background, the device reports "no media found".

Now that I have another Hero, I would like to backup those 22 factory background/wallpaper files.

1) Is that possible? If so, how? Does it require me to root the device so I can actually "copy out" the files?

2) Does there exist a backup software that can do a full system file backup? If so, please recommend one.

3) I have seen several file manager-like applications. Do any of these applications browse system files and allow one to copy them? (Is rooting reqired)?

4) Does anyone have copies of the system/default wallpapers? If so, will you please zip them up and post it here?

5) WHY did the pictures disappear after a hard reset? If they are part of the ROM, why did they not return after a reset?
