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.
