Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-10515) LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT does not detect file system storage

Sam Deepak created CB-10515:

             Summary: LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT does not detect file system storage
                 Key: CB-10515
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sam Deepak

The call to window.requestFileSystem(LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT, 0, function() {}); does not
detect the root storage location in windows phone 8.x. Rather it points to private data directory,even
after adding   the capability for accessing the local file system (removableStorage) in AppManifest.xml.

Basically window.requestFileSystem(LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT, 0,function(fileSystem) {},
function(error){}) gives me only "ms-appx://local" path which is actually the private data
directory for an app in windows phone. I want to access the root directory of the file system
because I am letting the user to store app specific files anywhere in the phone. (It works
in Android without specifying anything)

Basically the above LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT should not point to private data directory,
rather it should be the root directory of the local file system.
