Android Sync Cache Cleaning...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

When using Sync for android I don't know how to clean the cache for downloaded files. Let me explain: Imagine I download a video file for later watching (useful when you don't have internet connection), but after watching this video I don't want it to occupy my precious and limited android storage :). The problem then is deleting the downloaded file means Sync to remove it from remote computer :(.

 

The only workaround I found is to save sync app configuration, clear all the application data (from android app settings and the downloaded files with a file manager) then restore the configuration backup, but this is kind of uncomfortable for daily use.

 

Does anyone know any better way to swipe the downloaded files cache without deleting any remote files?

 

 

Thanks to everybody :)

There is a workaround for that. Share a read-only secret to your android device. Then, removal of the file won't lead to its removal from other peers.
