Why isn’t a SQLite db in system.environment.special folder.personal backed up in android? Where should it be stored to insure backup? A user got a new phone and lost all their data.

    For Xamarin.forms, you can Store and Access Data in Azure Storage from Xamarin.Forms.
    For android native platform, you can use android back up to upload your sqlite db to Google drive, then restore app data to use transfer data using sync adapters or Google Drive Android API.
