How can I schedule moving camera directory from internal phone storage to external SD card?

I want to move new files in the directory every day, to free up space on internal storage.

Is there any way for this such as by using script? (I have a rooted device)

  • Did you consider any automation app yet? tasker can do it easily. Cannot your Camera app be set to write into external SD card, or do you not want to explicitly set it like that? – Firelord Sep 28 '15 at 12:31
  • Some apps do not allow saving files to external storage cards. On Linux I'd just write simple shell script and schedule cron job. – Sfisioza Sep 28 '15 at 13:35
  • I do not have a Lollipop device which supports external SD card, else, I would've given a definite answer. But in Tasker you can use shell commands for sure. – Firelord Sep 28 '15 at 13:37
