Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-471) LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT "do not back up" file attribute iOS
Date Tue, 29 May 2012 22:17:23 GMT


Jonathan Stevens commented on CB-471:

I second Lee's question. Will this fix the websql and localstorage backup issues?  My app
got rejected because of the automatic backup process saving files where iCloud backed them
up.  I am having to custom-build Cordova for now in order to add the NSURLIsExcludedFromBackupKey
attribute to the backup file.

> 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.
