    Hello everyone.
    I was checking for app data on my phone when I noticed it was empty. I pretty sure this is a feature introduced by Android 11 called "scoped storage" (I think). What I'm trying to figure out is how can I view and edit app data if I can't view them in the first place. In the "My Files" app under "Android/Data" it reads that there are 0 files but when I click the "detail" option it states that there are 173 files present. Wth? I need help accessing the files for the apps I have downloaded. Screenshot_20210115-170848_My Files.jpg Screenshot_20210115-174511_My Files.jpg

    This area is for the data that apps accumulate and store.

    What files are you specifically looking for?

    Game apps and such. I remember i was able to install mobile games and see their files in "Android/Data". I want to know how to access them.

    Then you need a rooted device, and/or an app that will allow you to see and then manipulate those files.

    MTK is a file manager/explorer than can do this.

    I have had some limited success even on non-rooted devices with MTK.

    You must first extract the apk file of the app, and then copy it.

    Then you can use the copy as your disposable testframe.

    Keep in mind that it is not lawful to modify many apps.
