Unable to sync database files over OneDrive on Android

Dear All,

For some reason the latest Alzex app on Android assumes that OneDrive is READ ONLY and cannot write to the database file (therefore it cannot be used for syncing).

It can open files from OneDrive but it cannot write to it.

Please see the attachments with the relevant snapshots.

Thanks!

Best regards,

Adam

Hello.

This is the latest version of OneDrive app makes all files read only for other apps. I don’t know is it some mistake or made on purpose. I’ve tried to report the problem to Microsoft support team, but it seems they didn’t understand me.

Hello,

"latest version of OneDrive app makes all files read only for other apps" - Yes, this sounds correct.

I had exactly the same problem with SIMPLEMIND app:

Simplemind was also able to read from OneDrive but it could not longer sync the changes (write error).

4 days ago Simplemind released an updated app which resolved this problem (It can write to OneDrive now).

(Just so you know the issue created by MS can be addressed in the app.)

Pozdrowienia.

That sounds promising, we'll make investigations.

Even though the read only flag is set, the file is actually writable. We've added the exception for OneDrive in the latest version.
