Auto upload pictures not working from sdcard

Actual behaviour

  • Tell us what happens
    Auto upload pictures settings will not allow me to select the SDCARD as the camera folder. This was working unfil the end of May when I believe there was an update to Android app 2.18

Expected behaviour

  • Tell us what should happen
    I should be able to select the SDCARD as the camera folder

Steps to reproduce

  1. Settings
  2. Auto upload pictures
  3. Camera folder
  4. cannot find sdcard in the file list

Can this problem be reproduced with the official owncloud server?

Just to be in the same page: you open the Settings, then you select the “Auto Uploads Pictures”, enable it, and the “Camera folder” is where you can not select the source path where the pictures are fetched to be uploaded. Is that correct?

By default the SD card path is placed in the /storage/XXXX-XXXX folder (XXXX-XXXX is an alphanumeric string, different in every device). Don’t you see that folder? Is that empty? Could you browse to it (by browsing back)?

All details will be helpful

It defaulted back to the internal photo location of /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera. it does not see the sdcard if I drill back to /storage

This used to work until a few weeks ago when the app updated.

I have 2.17 installed on my samsung tablet and it does let me select the sdcard.

I have exactly the same problem.
I can not enter my sd card in the APP v2.18 any more.

Which device GranoOfficial?

Is there any way I can revert back to the 2.17 version of the Android app ?
