So I have my sqlite database in my assets directory and when the app is first installed I copy it into the data directory. Every time after that I check for an updated version number (when the app is updated) and if there is one I copy the new database file into the data directory. My question is, is it possible to back up particular tables? I have some that will never be affected by updates but that do have user information and I'd like to back those up, copy the new db, then restore them to their rightful place. I can think of a couple of not-great ways to do it (pull it out manually and store it locally then insert it back in), is there an easier way?
