I am trying to save a database file from res:// folder to user:// folder using the code below:
print("does not exists")
# Delete old test version
print("no old file")
# Copy the file from RES/dbase to USER
It works fine when I run it on PC but I am getting the following error in logcat when running in android
05-27 22:47:38.447 23258 23272 I godot : does not exists
05-27 22:47:38.447 23258 23272 I godot : no old file

I am under the impression that either I cannot write to the destination file, or my source file is not accessible. I was able to write a file on user:// by using file.open so I know I have access to user directory.
I hope someone could shed a light on how to better do this procedure.
BTW, If anyone is curious why I am copying a database to a user folder, I am basically using gdsqlite to access the content of the database to my application. Gdsqlite does require the database to be in user:// folder. It does works fine on PC but not on android devices on which I intend to use it. It is a 5-10mb database and I want it to be stored locally instead of the apps accessing the internet.
Edit: Please close, I found the answer at https://godotengine.org/qa/17959/file-not-exist-on-android
I added *.db in "Export\Resource\Filter to Export non resource file and it worked!
