    Hello All,

    Another query !!

    I have a app which includes a sqlite database & some file(xls,mp4,txt,pdf) etc in file.dirassets.
    The app needs to sync data from the server once a month... which would have newer files added by admin.
    How can i now add the new files in the app? since the file.dirassets is read-only..

    any other way of approaching this?

    You can copy the files to DirInternal. It is protected and is read write. Be sure to change all of your read routines to the new path instead of DirAssets. You can also use DirDefaultExternal, but it is not protected from people snooping around.
