Storing Vaulted Files on SD Card

The Android system doesn’t allow apps to fully use the SD card. We’ve come up with ways to restore this functionality as much as possible:

Automatic Online Back-Up

Automatic back-up stores your files in your account’s Google Drive. If you’re subscribed to automatic back-up, you can select to store your vaulted files on the SD card in Vaulty settings. Automatic back-up is required to do this, as the files on the SD card are likely to be lost due to:

  • Android deleting Vaulty files, when the app is uninstalled.
  • Hardware failure of any kind.
  • SD card removal.
Change Storage Permissions

Users with rooted devices can restore SD card access to Vaulty. If Vaulty has permissions to access a storage device, then it will be listed as a location option in settings. We do not promote rooting nor can we provide instructions to root; rooting may cause device damage, data loss and void your warranty.
