Hi,

Anyone know an easy way to force Google Music offline files to store on my external Sd rather than internal storage.

Tried directory bind but it is frankly above my level of competence

And it turns out directory bind doesn't work with the data/data partition where Google stores the cache files on Jellybean on the S3. Most, most irritating.

If anyone is interested I was able to solve this by using root browser to create a symlink to the external Sd. Works perfectly

Brushing out the cobwebs in that corner of my brain. I know what a symlink is. Can I create one in any file manager?

Not sure. Root browser makes it bloody easy though
