Hi,

Is it possible to bind the whatsapp images folder? I tried to do it but when I click on the disk Icon it's red, although the files got transferred successfully...what could be the problem here??

Edit: Nevermind I found the solution on page 157
Phone: GT N7100
ROM: Ditto Note 3 v5.2

No, you would not need 1.30 gb in internal memory.

What this app does is to perform a mount of the external directory over a pathname on the internal drive. Essentially, this just sets up a mapping on the internal drive which points to the external data.

The main purpose of DirectoryBind is to set up these kinds of mappings, so that you don't have to copy huge amounts of data from the external drive to the internal drive.

Can you try to bind the folders first, before download the game data and see what's happen? Also I suggest you to use some custom folder name different from DirectoryBind. I always bind directly the two folders and it works like a charm.
Example:
S: storage/sdcard1/gameloft
T: sdcard/gameloft
I've tried doing what you've mentioned and it still downloads the data to the phone's internal memory. Restoring to my stock rooted 4.1.1 to try it out DB worked perfectly there. I'm just going to assume that it's a firmware incompatibility with my phone and have to use my phone without it until a solution comes along.

Thanks nonetheless for trying to help

Default Android file

All my games show up under a 'Android' folder on the internal memory. Is it safe to bind this entire folder? I am a newbie but it seems that it is just game and app data. Any help is very appreciated! Thanks!

Nice to hear some good news today. ;P
It seems it was definitely your rom issue, if you want custom rom with working DB checkout the one in my sig.

Hi dude, yes it completely safe....if you just do the things right. ;P
That Android folder on internal sd is the place where all your games(and apps) are storing their data.

Thanks for the help. For some reason it shows that the game info has been copied over but when I go in the game and it asks me to download more data that should already be in the transferred file. Clearly the directories were not bound is there something I'm missing? I froze any app killer and can't figure it out.

Have you tried checking the box "alternate dbase management" in preferences?

This worked for me, I'm on CM10.1 on the i717

This is also where system apps like messaging are stored too right? I thought some people complained of some apps working some not after doing this?

The reason for my concern is a have a G Note and a 64gb SD card formatted as NTFS, so I have to use NTFS+ to mount it at boot, but the program scans the whole card which takes a couple minutes at boot (longer if it is a random reboot) so would my phone wig out at boot if the card hadn't been mounted, and would the card even mount if the NTFS app is located on the SD card?
