    I have a file that only appears in the download directory when posting to a forum or such. Its in the top download selection menu. I have used search programs like sd maid and it cant find the file. It must be in the emulated directory but not accessible. Dont really want to root the phone. Is there a way or program to access the file.

    To my knowledge, you should be able to access emulated data on a non rooted. Instead of SD Maid try using your stock file manager
    and look to internal "downloads". If you cnt find it there the check external sd "downloads"

    Look for the settings in your file manager, and select 'show hidden files'.
