Default Images

When the emulator launches but does not find an existing user data image in the active AVD's storage area, it creates a new one from a default version included in the SDK. The default user data image is read-only. The image files are read-only.

The emulator provides the -system <dir> startup option to let you override the location under which the emulator looks for the default user data image.

The emulator also provides a startup option that lets you override the name of the default user data image, as described in the table below. When you use the option, the emulator looks in the default directory, or in a custom location (if you specified -system <dir>).

Name Description Comments
userdata.img The initial user-data disk image Override using -initdata <file>. Also see -data <file>, below.
