The Android system prohibits installed apps from making full use of the SD card. We have come up with a few ways to restore as much of this functionality in Vaulty as possible.

With Automatic Backup

Users who are subscribed to automatic backup may select to store their vaulted files on the SD card in Settings. Automatic backup is required to do this as files on the SD card are more likely to be lost due to:

  • Android deleting Vaulty files when the app is uninstalled
  • hardware failure
  • 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.
