This is what I need; Termux - How do I create a directory of files accessible outside of Termux?

I have my Tiddlywiki running on node.js in Termux. My problem is that Termux stores all files in the default folder. This way I can not let Dropbox backup. Can someone help me moving the default folder (with content) to, for example, Downloads? Or what is the best directory in my case? I spent years working on my Wiki and I'm afraid of making mistakes.

Android 7 (Nougat)

I installed my Tiddlywiki to this example: http://tiddlywiki.com/static/Installing%2520TiddlyWiki%2520on%2520Node.js.html

See https://wiki.termux.com/index.php?search=Storage for the newest information about using storage in Termux. https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Termux-setup-storage is the prerequisite. Use it first. To share data see https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Sharing_Data for more information. Save your data to external storage in ~/storage/external which should be a link to Android/data/com.termux/files on your external SD card, and will be accessible from both Termux and Android.
