Mail of the month - September - How much songs can you store?

Posted by . on Monday, October 01, 2018
I've been using Fakebook Pro on a Samsung 12.2-inch tablet for a couple of years now. It has been a godsend!  Thank your for your programming efforts.My database has now reached 4.5 GB in size.  I'm using "Commander One" to copy my manual database backups to my Mac, since "Android File Transfer" on the Mac is limited to 4 GB files.This solution works well, but I'm wondering if Fakebook Pro will reach a limit to the size of the database. If so, can you tell me what that limit is?

This is a really interesting question! While I know there are many users out there with database sizes on par with your, my personal song library is not that huge yet.
But, the data is stored in an SQLite database and this database has a size limit of 140 TB. The EXT4 file system used on must Android devices has a 16 TB file size limit (older versions had a 2 TB limit).
I guess the transfer issue you noticed had to do with the FAT32 limitation (4 GB) of the SD card. On Android 6 and above, which handle extFAT SD cards, this should not be a problem.
