Adapting for use with Windows Phone ExternalStorageFile

Dec 15, 2013 at 6:17 PM
Interesting project! Just stumbled upon this while trying to find a solution to a problem I have with Windows Phone 8...

I want to be able to access a read-only file from the SD card and am required to use the ExternalStorageFile class in order for Windows Phone to allow me actual access to the file. I'm wondering how easy it would be for me to adapt this project to allow this. Any insights / thoughts?

I'd use NFileStorage as-is to create the storage file containing 100,000's of png files (I'm concerned with the index size though, being limited for space on the phones SD card), then use the adapted version on Windows Phone to read the file.

If you're curious and want a bit more background, here's my question looking for a solution on StackOverflow. Also explains why I can't use SQLite due to lack of support for ExternalStorageFile.

Hi Gavin,

Sorry, have no experience with the "ExternalStorageFile".
