Subject [GitHub] cordova-plugin-file pull request: Make Android default persistent ...
Date Fri, 31 Jul 2015 10:40:03 GMT
Github user jcesarmobile commented on the pull request:
    I agree with @macdonst that setting the  "AndroidPersistentFileLocation" preference to
"Compatibility" should be enough if the developer wants the old behaviour, but to the question
"Do we really need to write some code to show devs how to copy files from one location to
another using the FileSystem API?"
    Well, not really write code to show HOW to copy the files, there is documentation about
copying files, but from WHERE? how do I get the old files location?
    If you change the preference to internal, "window.requestFileSystem(PERSISTENT, 0, win,
fail);" will give you this location "/data/data/{android package}/files/files/", but where
are the old files? How do you get them now if PERSISTENT will give you the new location?
    It's not obvious to me
