Hi,

I have a b4A App which stores data into/accesses data from a Sqllite database.

I would like to provide backup services to the end-user with a choice for the user to

1) Save the data to

1.1)either some 'designated storage area' in the mobile device [for example, user will fix the location for the 1st time and every time the data will be backed up to that location either 'at designated times'/upon click of a button..This storage location can be in an SD Card etc.]

1.2)a designated path in 'Google Drive' of the end-user on open internet [System should automatically perform the 'Google authentication etc.' required for accessing the particular path and save the data to the specific location in 'Google Drive' at 'designated times'/upon the click of a button]

2) Ability to import the data from the locations in 1.1 and 1.2 mentioned above (in case the database gets corrupted in the mobile device)[System should detect that it is unable to open the database because it is corrupted and then offer the end-user a choice for carrying out 1.1 and 1.2 ]..

Requesting for guidance on how to do this.

Thanks
