Android :: Way To Delete App Associated Files From External Storage On Uninstall

Jan 1, 2010

It'd be convenient if an application I'm writing stored some files to external storage permanently (so they persist after the application has been exited[destroyed]), but on an uninstall I'd like to do the decent thing and have these files removed to free up the storage.

Is there any way I can have these files removed on an uninstall?

If there isn't (and I'm skeptical), then I'll have to create these files each time. I'm trying to save start-up time and also occupy required space by having them exist permanently.

Note: I need to use external storage, so both internal storage or a DB would be inappropriate.

Android :: Organizing Files On Sdcard Into Directories

May 27, 2010

I have images uploaded on the simulated sdcard on my emulator. I downloaded them from the browser, using the long-click on each image.

When I look at the file explorer in the DDMS perspective, I see that they are in the directory sdcard/download.

Now if I want to download some audio files and use them in an app to, say list the title of all audio files, will they go in the same directory? (I am trying to push the audio files manually from my computer to the emulator).

This doesn't seem right. Shouldn't the media files of different types (pictures, audio, video) go into different directories?

Also, thinking this through a little, how is something like this related to the physical directory on the sdcard?

Uri mMedia = android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI;

Android :: Creating Cache Files And Directories On HTC Desire

Oct 23, 2010

I've experienced a strange issue running applications on the HTC Desire.

When I call getApplicationContext().getCacheDir() or getApplicationContext().getFilesDir() from my activity this always returns null. In the emulator /data/data/com.myapp.android/cache respectively /data/data/com.myapp.android/files is returned.

Because of that I'm not able to use the webview class as it tries to create cache files and crashes with a null pointer exception. The logs:

CODE:..............

I noticed that other apps have issues as well. For example the google finance app logs the following message:

CODE:.............

Why I cannot create folders in this directory?

Is there a possibility to set the fileDir and cacheDir paths to the sd card or somewhere else? I looked at some classes like Context, Webview and CacheManager but I could not find a way to change it.

Do I need to set a permission to create cache files?

HTC Incredible :: Moving Files And Directories From 2GB SD Carad To New 1g GB Card

Jul 20, 2010

I may opt to buy a larger 16GB card for my Dinc to replace the 2GB card that came with it that I've been using for weeks. Will it just be a matter of copying all the files and directories from the old card to a temp folder on my PC and then copying them back to the new card once installed in the phone? Don't want to lose what I already have on my 2GB card.

HTC Desire :: Certain Files - Directories Visible In File Manager - Not Windows XP

I successfully partitioned EXT3/FAT32, rooted, and flashed Defrost.

Now a strange thing is occurring. I installed an off market app, but I can only see its folder in Android's File Manager, not in Windows XP.

This is going to cause me serious problems because I need to transfer some files into that folder from my PC.

How can I access this App's folder in Win XP?

Android :: Internal Memory And External Storage

Aug 18, 2010

I've started seeing some apps that offer to read/write data to the internal phone memory (like Super KO Boxing 2, which offers to save a whopping 52MB to the phone memory). I suppose this is because newer Android devices have a lot of internal storage, as opposed to my devices, which have very little. I would like to support internal storage in my app as well.

But it's a bit difficult to implement a solution to something that I don't really know how it works. For example, do these newer devices allow users to upload files to the internal memory, like it's possible to do with the SD card? Can someone explain internal storage from an user perspective and recommend strategies for supporting read/write operations both for internal and external memory (ie: letting the user choose which memory to use at startup, like the Super KO Boxing 2 app)?

Android :: Internal And External Storage - Force Close

Android :: Activity Get Notified When External Storage State Changes?

Jul 24, 2010

I would like my Activity to be informed when the SD card is removed, since it relies on files from the SD card (to keep apk size down) but for compatibility reasons is not targeted at Froyo. I'd like to close the application when the SD card is removed/mounted (giving the user a dialog message to inform them of course) so that I don't get IOExceptions etc (I'd quite like to not have to check everytime I load a file to see if the external storage is available, I already do a check on application launch). There doesn't seem to be any attribute in the manifest for this (like configChanges) that I can find.

Android :: Files - Local Files - Storage

Sep 2, 2009

From the Android documentation:

"You can store files directly on the mobile device or on a removable storage medium. By default, other applications cannot access these files. "

I could write to the sdcard (/sdcard/file.tmp) and other apps could access these files, right?

I would like some local storage that I can write files to (and read from later) that are not accessible to other applications, and I will always have access to. The problem with the sdcard is that if someone plugs in a USB cable and turns on MSC, my application (and all applications on the phone) will lose (both read and write) access to the /sdcard directory. So I need something more reliable.

General :: Google MUST Support External Storage

Oct 9, 2012

None of the Google Applications support external storage, Gmail 4.1.2 won't send documents attached from an external sd card, Play Movies & TV won't allow you to specify a external card as a storage location, pinned Google Drive documents can't be stored on an external card, Play Music sucks up internal memory. Try sending an attachment using Gmail from a Motorola Xoom, a "Google Experience Device".

How do we get Google to support this? Most other email applications support it, but as a Google Apps Enterprise user I want and expect the native Android email application to work.I use external storage on a Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy S3, Razr Maxx and Transformer Prime.
