How to backup my sessions or transfer them to a new device?

Here’s a short list of what you want to backup, especially if you want to uninstall the app, or factory reset your phone. Pro-tip: archive the files on source phone, and unarchive on target phone.; Transferring many single files over USB is notorious for causing corruption. I know this whole process should be a feature in the app. Will be at some point.

RaceChrono v4.5.0 and newer

RaceChrono:
– internal storage: /Android/data/com.racechrono.app/files/ (sessions, tracks, exported files)
– internal storage: /DCIM/RaceChrono/ (raw videos)
– external storage: /Android/data/com.racechrono.app/files/ (raw videos, exported files)

RaceChrono Pro:
– internal storage: /Android/data/com.racechrono.pro/files/ (sessions, tracks, exported files)
– internal storage: /DCIM/RaceChrono/ (raw videos)
– external storage: /Android/data/com.racechrono.pro/files/ (raw videos, exported files)

Notice: The /Android/data/com.racechrono.app (RaceChrono) and /Android/data/com.racechrono.pro (RaceChrono Pro) folders are deleted upon app’s uninstall. So if you uninstall, all your sessions and tracks (and raw videos on external storage) will be deleted. This has changed due to 3rd party cleanup apps, and even Samsung’s own apps, are known to delete the /RaceChrono/ folder on unprotected space that was used by prior versions.

RaceChrono v4.4.0 and older

RaceChrono:
– internal storage: /RaceChrono/ (sessions and tracks)
– internal storage: /DCIM/RaceChrono/ (raw videos)
– internal storage: /Android/data/com.racechrono.app/files/ (exported files)
– external storage: /Android/data/com.racechrono.app/files/ (exported files, raw videos)

RaceChrono Pro:
– internal storage: /RaceChrono/ (sessions and tracks)
– internal storage: /DCIM/RaceChrono/ (raw videos)
– internal storage: /Android/data/com.racechrono.pro/files/ (exported files)
– external storage: /Android/data/com.racechrono.pro/files/ (exported files, raw videos)

Notice, if you ever need to uninstall RaceChrono the folder under /Android/data/com.racechrono.* is deleted upon app uninstall. Makes sense at least backup the RAW videos on external storage for Pro version. The /RaceChrono/ folder is not deleted but it makes sense to backup it frequently.
