Ian Clelland resolved CB-5916.

    Resolution: Fixed

> Change Android filesystem root location
> ---------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-5916
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: Android, Plugin File
>            Reporter: Ian Clelland
>            Assignee: Ian Clelland
> Android Persistent files are (also) stored in an inconvenient place by default: Either

the root of the SD Card, if it is mounted (And on Nexus devices, the emulated SD Card is *always*
> See CB-285 for much more discussion, and

> {code}
> <preference name="AndroidPersistentFileLocation" value="Compatibility" /> (Old
location logic)
> <preference name="AndroidPersistentFileLocation" value="Internal" /> (New location)
> {code}
> "{{Internal}}" will put persistent files under the user's application internal storage
directory {{Activity.getFilesDir() + "/files"}} -- the extra {{/files}} means that other filesystem
plugins can register roots at different places under {{getFilesDir()}} which will not be visible
to one another.
