Android Question

Will external Storage Folder be deleted when App is updated?

Will a folder like


, which is created like

mfolder = this.getExternalFilesDir("asubfoldername").getAbsolutePath();

be deleted or its content deleted, when an app is updated in Google Play ?

In case of uninstalling it will be deleted I guess, but what happens when it is updated ?


When you update your application /Android/data/mypackage/asubfoldername it won't delete but on uninstalling application it will be deleted.
