Is it safe to delete userdata-qemu.img userdata-qemu.img.qcow2 files

By: Gren in Android Tutorials on 2023-04-03  

The userdata-qemu.img and userdata-qemu.img.qcow2 files are disk images used by the Android emulator to store the user data and app data on the virtual device.

If you delete these files, you will lose all data stored on the virtual device, including any installed apps, user data, and app data. However, deleting these files will not harm your computer or any other data stored on it.

If you are encountering issues with the emulator or need to reset it to its initial state, you can safely delete these files. However, if you have important data on the virtual device that you want to keep, you should back up the data before deleting these files.

Here are the steps to back up the data:

  1. Open the Android Virtual Device Manager in Android Studio.
  2. Select the virtual device you want to back up.
  3. Click on the "Edit" button to open the virtual device configuration.
  4. Click on the "Show Advanced Settings" button.
  5. Scroll down to the "Emulated Performance" section and click on the "Export" button next to the "Data File" field.
  6. Choose a location to save the backup file and click "Save".

This will create a backup file of the virtual device's user data and app data that you can later import if needed. To import the backup file, follow the same steps as above, but click on the "Import" button next to the "Data File" field and choose the backup file you created.
