I don't think the checker is working correctly for this challenge.

I wrapped the given code with a try/catch but I get this error when I try to submit my answer:

JavaTester.java:22: error: exception Exception is never thrown in body of corresponding try statement
    } catch(Exception ex) {
1 error
// assetManager, assetName, and fileToWrite have been initialized elsewhere

try {
  InputStream in = assetManager.open(assetName);
  FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(fileToWrite);
  copyFile(in, out);
} catch (Exception e) {

Yep, I tried it again a few minutes ago and it worked. Thanks

This Android Data Persistence course has had a couple of issues. You guys should go through all of the user posts on the lessons. There is a spot where the teacher mentions copy/pasting something from the Teacher Notes... except it's not there. Some helpful user added a post with the missing text like 2 months ago. There's other places where the downloaded project files don't quite match up with the video instructions. Nothing has been a big problem but it's just several small issues which I haven't experienced with other courses.
