VBO Crash, Uninstall, Reinstall, Videos gone...

Postby tmatyac » Sat Aug 19, 2017 9:02 pm

Can I recover my internal videos after an uninstall/reinstall? I got my data back but video from the "Android\data\com.harrys.laptimerpro\files\Movies" are gone.

Any data areas associated with an app are cleared when uninstalling the app. The above folder is app-specific (com.harrys.laptimerpro), so it has been purged.

Ahhhhhhhhh..... I thought so. Why do the videos have to go to the proprietary folder? Android security? Can the save folder be changed or is backing up the video the only way out? Thanks for the response!

Yes, exactly. LapTimer used to store videos in the global Movies folder formerly. Google discouraged the use of global directories first and closed that path later. Not all, but many manufacturers followed this recommendation for late Android version (I believe starting with 5, but I'm not sure). All of this got a lot of critics by developers, but somehow we need to deal with this...
