I have disabled the extension and rolled back my backup. I'm still wondering what went wrong here as the extension actually created the right folders on my SD card. Somehow the links seem to have been missing. I didn't dare try a restore via "adk ." as it was unclear what else could have gone wrong.

I would however appreciate some feedback and clarification from the author.

Thanks for sharing your experience trying this. I'm tempted to try and think I will after I back home from business trip.

I think one logic point is depending how big is the total size of all apps being "move" around it will vary the time taken. Nowadays people used to install many apps and its data should be huge.

The other factor may be affecting is whether it "move" to internal memory or external like sdcard. I use magic binding and found out the time taken with and without using magic binding have huge different. Usually it's min v.s. 20mins for 1G size file. Reading/writing to sdcard is significantly longer than to internal memory.

Yeah same thought if this module main function is alternative for backup app like titanium or even twrp,then why backup is mandatory before actually using this module,I think that kill its purpose.

Glad I found this before attempting it. Perhaps an option to copy data BEFORE committing to a move would be wise? Regardless, it would also be good to update the url in the description to point to this thread. I'll hold off until we get more feedback and hopefully a safer method of migration.

May I suggest you try a manual "mount -o bind" to some directory in your external_sd first to make sure it works? I reviewed the code before and made sure that a "mount -o bind" works in my case. Module work as promised, moved twice between ROMs last arvo.

I picked a bad day to scroll through Magisk Manager to see if there were any interesting new modules to try. Luckily I didn't lose ALL my data, but every time I reboot it erases the data of all Google System apps & resets the settings in Magisk Manager. I didn't do a nandroid backup beforehand bc doing a factory reset isn't that big of a deal for me as I keep all my important data saved on a usb stick.

My question is, what happens when I uninstall this module? I just need to know if I need to set aside some time to restore everything manually afterwards? Btw, I tried running the command "adk" in recovery (twrp) to uninstall it & set everything back like it says in the description, but it didn't recognize the command.

I think nobody is doing it

I think our feedback is ok and correct because the script results in an anoying mess - you are right but this is independent from having a backup or not.

I suggest the script must perform that mandatory testing... according to the "fire and forget" manual.

I tried uninstall it as said in OP , from recovery but didn't work until I flash again from recovery then adk worked in terminal an asked to delete "adk" completely and move data I did yes then rebooted

"mv: can't rename /data/datarestore no such file or directory

Good bye"

This is what shown after reboot I lost all user data and few user apps started crashing

In data/media/adk/ I have not found any apks before unistall this module, found only data of the apps but no apks have backedup , apk backup folder not created in said location

There some real potential here if this work because I have a app with 3.+GB and I have having to set it up again after every clean install.

Everyone who claims their data has been lost, please check whether it is in /data/media/adk/.appData.

I'm not here to blame you, but I even wrote "app data backup is RECOMMENDED" and clearly enough, the last word in that line is capitalized. Besides, why wouldn't you just backup your data before trying something that moves it around?

Ok, nuff yelling. I assure you this works (for me at least) and I've tested it multiple times before publishing. As a rule, I don't post anything which hasn't worked flawlessly at least on my device. When posting, warnings are always included and clearly visible.

Now, back to the main subject. If your data is in the aforementioned folder, then it is not lost. All you have to do is reboot into recovery, go to terminal and run "mv -f /data/media/adk/.appData/* /data/data" whithout quotes. And of course, uninstall or disable adk with Magisk Manager for Recovery Mode.

If it is not clear by now (even though that's in the README), no app data is moved to the sdcard. Besides being dangerous, that would take ages and be extremely inefficient. Did I say dangerous yes? Good. App data goes to /data/media/adk/.appData. Since that's still in internal storage, the moving process is executed in a breeze (could be well less than 10 seconds). What goes to the sdcard (if it's available within the 90 seconds timeout) are APK copies. If no sdcard is found, APK backups are stored at /data/media/adk/apksBkp.

Last, I haven't tried this module on Magisk v16.7. I'm currently on 16.6 and everything is going fine. Don't look at anything here as insensitive and/or poorly tested, as that couldn't be farther from the truth. I'm here to provide useful tools and support. However, I cannot guarantee those work for everyone, considering all which is involved. Thus, disclaimers/warnings are never unseen.

People who lost data, was it because you wiped internal storage on twrp?
