configuration file for syncthing on android


I had to reset my smartphone and I now have to reconfigure syncthing for android. Before resetting I did a backup from all files on the device and external_sdcard.

Now I want to restore the configuration for syncthing from the backup but I only find empty directories in the path /Android/data/com.nutomic.syncthingandroid/ on both internal and external sdcard.

Do I have to search for the configuration file in a different path or do the files seem to be lost in my backup? If so, do I have to create a new ID for my device? I still have the old ID on my synced PCs…

Thank you very much! Best regards, Alexander

The configuration and keys are stored in /data/data/com.nutomic.syncthingandroid/files/. If you used “export config” in the app settings, they are stored in /sdcard/backup/syncthing/.

Ok, thanks. This is the root filesystem. Unfortunately I only have copied files that are on the internal sdcard filesystem that are also accessible by filebrowser in debug mode. Next time I’ll use the export feature. Thanks!
