Cool What is this folder "memory card sdcard0 Android "?

Sorry for asking a simple question as this, It could be answered before, But I did not find doing Google searches.

In the Phone Memory (not the external microSD) there is a folder named Android.
It has two folders in it, "data" and "obb".

\Memory card\Android\obb\
\Memory card\Android\data\

Is this like "program files" in windows? Or "/usr" for freebsd or linux file folder structure?

Apps can store data in the 'internal' memory (/data/data/) - those files are usually private to the app. There's also the 'external' storage (/mnt/…/) which can be e.g. a removable SD card or an internal storage. Read this for more info.

/mnt/…/Android/obb/ is where where apps store large files (expansion files.) /mnt/…/Android/data/ is where apps store all other external data.

That's wrong, Android/obb isn't only used for game data. See my post above.

Also, directory/file names are case sensitive - there is not "android/obb" by default, it's "Android/obb"
