restore fails on phone
#5
(01-18-2016, 01:57 PM)Zuberman Wrote: The biggest danger with saving/restoring settings across devices is when it comes to the storage location.  Especially if the storage location is set to an external SD card, this probably will not work across devices. I tried to add code to handle this (where it falls back to using the regular storage location) but it sounds like that is not working correctly for some reason. I will work on this as I believe I should be able to address it.  I'll also look into that crash you experienced.

Thanks,
Mike

One idea that comes to mind is than when a restore including settings is initiated, if there are any paths in the backup image which don't exist on the device where the reload is done, bring up a dialog box and ask the user which paths to use.  I don't suggest that this is necessarily the best possible thing to do, just one way it could be done.

...but in general, yes, this kind of thing is really tricky to get right in general.

Meanwhile, thanks again for all the fixes, and also for the ability to put MobileSheets on my phone -- I don't plan to do much reading on the phone Smile , but it's nice to be able to do the occasional lookup when my tablet isn't handy.
