Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-471) LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT "do not back up" file attribute iOS
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 08:32:49 GMT


Lee Crossley commented on CB-471:

Essentially, we should be able to specify if a file is to be backed up or not (possibly when
calling  window.requestFileSystem). In my workaround, I'm creating a directory, setting the
attribute on it and saving files I don't want backed up in there.

There is also a problem with the way you back up web sqlite databases - is also backed up
on iCloud. If non-critical data is stored in there this is incorrect and apps will be rejected.
This should be configurable.

> According to the developer documentation on Apple's website:
> Starting in iOS 5.0.1 a new "do not back up" file attribute has been introduced allowing
developers to clearly specify which files should be backed up. (
> Persistance is easily achievable (LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT) but there seems to be no
way of specifying if a saved file is not backed up to the iCloud or not.
> Apps may be rejected by Apple (depending on the data) if the "do not back up" file attribute
is not set.
