Move to external storage results in everything 404

Moving to external sdcard -Brave opens, but will not load pages

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Move Brave to external storage
  2. Open Brave
  3. Enjoy 404

Expected result:

Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.37.116 chromium - followed by other stuff

Mobile Device details
Samsung Gtab A - Android 10 not rooted

Additional Information:
Device complaining about dwindling internal storage space. Brave, the biggest fatty (and until now, default browser). Moved to external storage, only so that I could register and bless this very Brave community with this topic.

Side note. Either the search function sucks, or nobody has ever complained about this…or…like Tigger, I’m the only one.



@overground From what I know “It is not recommended to copy or backup your browser/wallet profile to another device”.

"At this time, this action is not recommended and will cause you to stop seeing Ads. "

Thanks for the reply. I guess technically it’s another device, but it’s simply the removable SD card - with Brave’s enormous amount data moved via android native apps to SD implementation. I understand the security risks of doing this, but I’m fairly certain that I will not suffer a data breach as a result of the migration , I’m not interested in Brave Ad points and things - I just like the browser. However, with it consuming a huge portion of my internal storage, I’ll be forced to uninstall it if I can’t migrate its data to the “external storage” (micro sdcard inserted into dedicated tablet port).
