Where is SaveData location?

Hi,

 

I am testing how robust are the SaveData and LoadData functions. 

 

I could not find where the files are stored on Android however. there is no folder called e.g. com.microsoft.powerapps, so I don't know where to look .

 

Anyone can tell where the files are stored? 

 

Also on IOS and PowerApps app (not browser) on W10. 

 

EDIT: My intent was to check whether it is possible to backup and restore such files for cases of disaster recovery. seems like it's not possible, or at least not without significant effort (rooting and whatnot), and unsupported.

Hi @Brazilian_Joe ,

 

The storage is encrypted and in a private location on the local device, isolated from other users and other apps.

@Brazilian_Joe this blog says it's stored in a "... private area...", I don't know anymore than that.

Hi @Brazilian_Joe 

As for my knowledge goes, the SaveData function is save the data inside our mobile device/phone cache memory.

 

You can clear it though through clear cache option in your powerapps mobile device hamburger menu just below your account profile pic by selecting clear cache option and all your SaveData will be cleared.
