Re: GoPro Apps Storage Selection on Android

  Same issue here. Ive got several 100 GBSs worth of footage and only 32GB of space on my Samsung Tab S3. Im not even going to repeat What the problem is, cause it's been mentioned several times in this thread. Suffice to say its a MAJOR issue.

 

I Suspect Gopro wants to force their customers to migrate to the "Cloud" so they can boost their income with the subscription fees.

Re: GoPro Apps Storage Selection on Android

I have an Android (Samsung Galaxy S9)
Here's what I found to resolve this as desired!
Open Settings
Then (you need to click 7 times on) About Phone
That enables Developer Mode
Open Developer Mode, scroll down to the end.
Click on Force allow apps on external.
See that it is enabled with the slide to the right side!
This allowed me to do the following.
Open Settings> Apps Click on GoPro.
Click Storage, click Change, NOW it presents the option to make the storage location the SD card, which means moving the App and files to the SD!
REALLY WORKED FINE FOR ME, SO PLEASE TRY IT!

Even with the developer mode workaround and moving app and its data to external SD and clearing data and cache and starting from scratch, GoPro will STILL create its media folder on the internal memory.

HOW STUPID CAN ONE BE? FOR MULTIPLE YEARS?? The Android App is effectively useless.

Re: GoPro Apps Storage Selection on Android

And correct me if I'm wrong, still no solution... I am trying even to find where the folder containing the gopro videos is. Unsuccessful for some videos, and can't understand why either.
