How to transfer your G-Stomper files to new device

Postby planet-h » Thu Sep 15, 2016 5:43 am

All G-Stomper files are normally located a dedicated folder structure named 'gstomper' on your internal sd storage.
So all you have to do is to copy that folder to your new device.

The fastest way is to use a PC to transfer the files:

1. Connect your old device to a PC using an USB cable.
2. Make sure that the connection mode is set to 'transfer media files' or similar, so that you can access the internal storage from the PC.
3. Copy the complete folder structure 'gstomper' to your PC using the windows explorer (on the PC).
4. Once done, disconnect your old device.
5. Then on your new device, go to the play store and install G-Stomper .
(Here is a walk-through how to install your paid app on a new device without getting charged again)
6. Start G-Stomper on your new device (this will create its new (empty) folder structure 'gstomper' on the right location), then close G-Stomper again.
7. Connect your new device to a PC using an USB cable.
8. Make sure that the connection mode is set to 'transfer media files' or similar, so that you can access the internal storage from the PC.
9. Now copy your previously copied 'gstomper' folder (the one from the old device) from your PC to your new device and overwrite the empty 'gstomper' folder structure which was created by G-Stomper.

Optional:
If you have your own sample library on your old device (samples that are NOT from G-Stomper sample packs), stored outside the 'gstomper' folder structure, then just repeat the walk-through above for your sample library.

If you don't have a PC for the transfer, you can of course also go other ways, e.g. using ES File Explorer and a Dropbox for the transfer.
In that case you first have to copy the 'gstomper' folder structure from your old device to the dropbox, and then copy it from the dropbox to your new device.
But be warned, that process might take very long as the G-Stomper files can get huge.
