    I got a message from google photos about automatically backing up some new folders. I don't know how they got there but I didn't recognize the names. There were three different names and two of them were repeated over and over again. How do I find out what they are?

    Unknown folders were probably created by apps that you installed, nothing out of the ordinary.
    Use your file explorer and check

    I used my files but I didn''t find much. Should I use X-plore instead? What do I do with them if I find them?

    I think some were land and some were plot or maybe play. I believe there might also have been 1. I have no idea how they got there. X-plore hasn't been much more helpful than my files about this.
