No access to Android/data on Android 11

Since Android 11, it’s not possible to open these folders in Internal storage or on memory card:

  • Android/data
  • Android/obb

This is part of Android’s increasing security, and is also mentioned on Android developer site.

X-plore tries to solve this by asking for special access as written here. You have to choose Android/data folder on device’s Internal storage, then X-plore should be able to read and write to these protected folders.

For memory cards, opening these folders may not work at all.

On Android 13, it may ask permission for opening each individual sub-folder under Android/data
