Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-10515) LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT does not detect file system storage
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2016 10:20:39 GMT


Sam Deepak commented on CB-10515:

Hi Sergey,

When I executed this statement window.requestFileSystem(LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT, 0,function(fileSystem)
{}, function(error){}) in windows phone 8.x, it gave me the access to ms-appx://local. I gave
an alert to display the output of .toURL() method, it displays "ms-appx/://local" in sideloading
and ms-appdata://local in WP8.1 (private data directory), as mentioned here at :

But When I read windows phone 8.x site at,
it is said that "removableStorage" capability has to be added to AppManifest.xml to get permission
to storage system. But when I did it, it did not work.

By your answer, do you mean that right now once can not access the storage at the present
moment in WP8.1 ? Please advice.

> 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.
