Hi all,
Is there any way i can create my application related folder which consists of number of files, in sdcard, such that it is not visible to other applications.
I tried creating that folder in application private data directories but since this is stored in internal memory,number of files that folder can contain is limited.
Kindly give any solution hw to achieve this.

Create a .nomedia text file and put it inside your folder. Android MediaScanner will skip this folder and other applications should not be able to read the contents of this folder.
Try it out.

Also, if you are using .nomedia please read Issue 3692 first.
