Factory reset - backup? Data File Location?

Post by jimboss5 »

I am going to reset my phone back to factory, I do not see and I am unable to locate the Data File Money Manager uses???
Is it hidden?  Is there a way to back it up then restore when I have reset my phone?
Thank You

Hi, if you use Dropbox sync, the database you find in /sdcard/MoneyManagerEx/dropbox/. If not use Dropbox sync the file is stored on private folder of application (like all android apps). You can backup this files using apps such as Titanium Backup or others.
Otherwise, i suggest you create a dropbox account, link the application and upload your current database before you do factory reset
I avaible for any other questions

There should be another option for backing up the database. A lot of people don't like/want dropbox, so there should be a choice what to use for storage (spideroak, tresorit, google drive etc.). Also should bean option to attach the at an e-mail.

I tried Dr Fone Android Recovery not so long ago for my phone. It helps me to find deleted photos twice! So I hope it works for HDD too.

I think all your methods are just good.But, look at this, you'll be impressed. It takes three steps and nearly all
kinds of files on your Android phone can be done. No pain at all. Try this.
You'll thank me when you make it to back up the Android Data.:lol:

Just a quick update. The latest beta now includes support for 4 major cloud storage providers, thanks to CloudRail:
- Dropbox
- Google Drive
- OneDrive
- Box

This should be enough to provide backup, history, and protection of your data. Any other solution is also valid, as the database is just a file.

Any contributions in functionality of the backup and export are welcome.

Titanium Backup app needs your phone being rooted. I am using Androidphonesoft Data Recovery, which has a convenient backup and restore option.
