Can I move my local files?

Can I move my local files?


I want to have Spotify store offline music on my phone's (Galaxy SII) SD card. If I use this method https://www.spotify.com/us/help/faq/mobile/android-how-do-i-store-offline-music-on-the-external-sd-c... can I copy that file over first, so I don't have to resynchronize everything over the course of the next five days?

Hello,

 

Did you manage to move the files to the external sdcard on your Galaxy S2? I tried this: http://www.spotify.com/fr/help/faq/mobile/android-how-do-i-store-offline-music-on-the-external-sd-ca... with this path: /mnt/sdcard/external_sd but it doesn't work... Is it a wrong path??


Well, I've moved the files, but I haven't uninstaled and reinstalled Spotify yet, and pointed it at the new path. Kinda scared to.

Something you might have to bear in mind.

 

On the Galaxy S II, the "External SD Card" is actually the built in 16Gb of memory. 

 

If you are talking about using the removable microSD card, replace "/mnt/sdcard/external_sd/" with "/mnt/emmc/"

 

The cache will then be stored here....

 

/mnt/emmc/Android/data/com.spotify.mobile.android.ui

 

If you copy everything from  /mnt/sdcard/external_sd/Android/data/com.spotify.mobile.android.ui

 

to the above path then set Spotify to look in /mnt/emmc/,  you will still have to re-sync, but instead of spotify having to re-download everything, it will find them in the cache at the new location and sync in seconds and you will be able to use your whole card.

 

IIRC I actually had to add some media files to the microSD before the S II would actuall see the card though.

 

I spent a lot of time very frustrated that my S II couldn't use my 32Gb microSD card until I done that
