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.

Currently only built-in file manager named Files can open these folders. Other file managers can’t.

It’s probably possible to open these on rooted device, but on standard device with Android 11 there is no way for X-plore to browse these folders.
