I'm getting error: No data was downloaded from cloud. But data.crypt file is in the cloud

  • When Google Drive is concerned... this can happen if you copy the data.crypt file to the cloud manually. In this case aWallet cannot see the file because it can only see files it has created itself in Google Drive. aWallet don't have permission to see or read other files.
  • If you use Dropbox... it stores application data in specific folders e.g. in "Dropbox/Apps/aWallet Cloud". aWallet can access files only within this folder after it gets the necessary permission. Therefore let aWallet to create this file itself. Otherwise aWallet may not be allowed see this file.

During synchronization aWallet gives "Error talking to cloud" message

  • There is something wrong with the cloud connection. It is most likely temporary network problem which should be solved automatically. If not try restarting your phone.
  • Check if the cloud is not full (common issue with Dropbox).
  • Also make sure you are not connecting through a network which blocks connections to clouds (e.g. some company WiFi networks or some mobile networks when data plan is reached).

Can not open data.crypt file to see passwords

  • The data.crypt file backup is encrypted and can't be opened directly. aWallet Cloud reads and writes it automatically.
  • The backup in the cloud is useful in the situation you lose your phone or if it stops working. In this case you can install aWallet Cloud to a new phone and choose "Restore from Cloud" in the initialization screen.
  • The cloud backup is also useful if you want to keep aWallet data synchronized in multiple Android devices automatically.

Purchased aWallet Cloud from Play. When try to synchronize, get message: aWallet Cloud licence not verified

Make sure:
  1. You are connected to the internet - which you probably are - so that Google Play can verify the license.
  2. You are using the same Gmail account on your phone as was used for buying the app.
  3. Try pressing the synchronize button several times. It sometimes takes a while till the info about the purchase is delivered from Google Play to the phone.
  4. Try restarting the phone. Sometimes the phone is in a wrong condition and restart helps to renew internet connection.
  5. If you did not enter much data since this stopped working, reinstall aWallet Cloud (you should not pay again). After you reinstalling choose: Restore from cloud option on the second screen.
  6. As a last resort see this post.
If you still have problems, please contact the support by email.
