Stop moving my files from SD card to device!

Every couple of months, I notice that my device memory is nearly full and everytime, the culprit is DoggCatcher. I keep changing the default storage location to my SD card in DoggCatcher then after some time passes, the files stop getting stored on the SD and start getting stored on the device again. This is really annoying.

And the worst part is that the process to get the files stored on the SD card again is not very straightforward and takes time (to find files and re-initiate downloads).

Is DoggCatcher changing the storage location after every update? Is that what is happening? If so, please stop that!

SD card Issues

4.4 KitKat & 5.0 Lollipop The app only has read/write permission to access the Android Data limited directory & read access the SD Card (External Storage) http://www.doggcatcher.com/StorageDirectory & http://www.doggcatcher.com/comment/14662#comment-14662

Also 6.0/6.1 Marshmallow & 7.0 Nougat DC requires read/write permission to access the SD Card & Android Data limited directory (External Storage) http://www.doggcatcher.com/node/6493 - Read/write access is still limited to the Android Data limited directory - So if permission isn't given, the storage directory (Android Data limited directory "External Storage - SD card") is changed back to the default internal storage directory
