How to view /Android/data directory on external sd card on Android 11?
After updating to Android 11 I have noticed that I am unable to access the Android/Data/ directory on my external sd card (able to access internal storage /storage/emulated/0/Android/data with Storage Access Framework). This is evidentially due to the new scoped storage requirements.
I believe this an unavoidable fact, if anyone can show otherwise I would be interested to see.
Is it possible to view this directory if the phone has been rooted?
Due to storage changes in Android 11 it is no longer possible to access the .../Android/Data/ directory on an external sd card on an unrooted phone.
From the https://developer.android.com/about/versions/11/privacy/storage#other-app-specific-dirs :
On Android 11, apps can no longer access files in any other app's dedicated, app-specific directory within external storage.
It remains possible to access the /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/ directory, see https://android.stackexchange.com/questions/231481/android-11-cant-see-contents-of-android-data-even-with-root .
