Update of one app, the other is not installed

Due to the recent changes in the Android file system the transfer of the app data to the private folder in /Android/data/ directory will launch after the app update. When only a single app is installed on the device (the other Locus is not installed), the data transfer is simple:

  • one app (Locus Map 4.4.x or Locus Map Classic 3.55.x) is installed
  • download and install the update (Locus Map 4.5 or Locus Map Classic 3.56)
  • during the app initialization, you are notified of the app directory /Locus/ stored in the unsupported part of the internal storage:
  • after accepting it, you can select the private folder into which the data will be transferred - either in the internal storage or on the external SD card (can be significantly slower)
  • Locus smoothly transfers all the original data into its private folder
  • the process may take a few minutes depending on the size of your data
  • after the app restarts, all is done and working as before

What if I refuse?

  • you can go on using the app as before
  • but you are notified of the app data transfer at each next start of the app
  • you can move the original data any time also from the app main menu:

    or from settings > miscellaneous > default directory.
