Hello
I cannot see the folders inside Internal Storage/Android/data, this folder shows up empty.

I have root and "show hidden files" checked.
I can see any other files/folders, even in root folder but not in that one. Any idea?

Thanks a lot

I used to have the same problem and (a year and more ago) I started to use (there was a discussion about at that time) MiXPlorer builds with "API29" in the name (post #1, downloads)

That way, MiXPlorer can see and use /Android/data with no problem (probably even without root), on my two Xiaomi phones (one with MiUI 12.5/A11 and the other MIUI 13/A12) - screenshot

Thanks., Now I can see the folders and files in it!
But I cannot play any media in it or copy/paste to internal storage folder. Any guess?

I can copy/paste between /Android/data and /Download, now I just played an ogg file I found in /Android/data/email/files and time ago I installed an apk attachment I found in the subfolder for another app there

Don't know if you need to enable some permissions for MiXPlorer in the native Settings for your ROM - A12 and.A13 might be tough about, and eg Xiaomi MIUI ROMs. Cannot help.you further

If you now installed that API29 MiX version, maybe you have two versions of MiX app installed and/or the new one did not install as update for your previous (they might have different package names), hence you maybe lost the permissions previously granted to MiX. You must investigate yourself

First I uninstalled the previous MiX and then installed the api29.
I'm on android 13 in a pixel 4a.

Thanks for the help anyway.

Have you checked the option in Magisk for Global Namespace? Settings>Superuser>Mount namespace Mode>Global

Did it, but not luck :(

Far be it from me not to nag about logs but it may be the case that this is a known and documented issue for which there is a fix.... so nagging about providing details in the first report and about searching for answers seem on point. Consider yourself (graciously) nagged about that, and check out the suggestions regarding "document provider" across the linked posts below. Try this first in the "normal" (non API specific) version of MiX.

Disclaimer: The ideas and suggestions in the linked posts below emerged over time and into different branches in the FAQ along with Google's increasing restrictions to directory access, but due to the prevalence of this type of issue I'm trying to consolidate all the suggestions into one post containing many workarounds that a user could check, including previous suggestions made in this discussion as well as document providers. The last of the linked post below is a first attempt at that consolidation and contains a tidy description of document providers regarding access to /android/data, but the other two posts also may speak to those directories and the need for document providers.

MiX Nugget - Document Provider

MiX Nugget - Android-version specific workarounds
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-85904825

MiX Nugget: Troubleshooting SD card & USB OTG access, and creating Document Providers.
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-87626419

If creating a document provider does not help, then as previously suggested you should log this and share details. Post 7 of the FAQ describes how to use MiXplorer's internal logging and what kind of details to share.

Would be a big help if you could try and do whatever operation you are trying to do, play media or copy/paste files whatever, then post a log, would remove the air of mystery and the guessing game we gots going on

In line 91, thats a video I tried to play.
Just to try something, but cannot either copy, past, or open a txt, or do anything in that folder. I just can see the folders and files in it.
Thanks

In this log it seem that you've created document providers for those locations

It could not hurt to do so again but at this point your other log about the copy/pates might be more informative. Also, check the last of the 3 linked FAQ posts for some things regarding permissions that some users have had to reset.

Warning, Rabbit Hole Ahead - Jumping in. :)

In other words this is looking to be a potential real issue or yet another challenge laid down by Google but it is hard to make sense of the information even though it is good information.

/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.google.android.GoogleCamera/files/panorama_sessions/session_20220822_123030/orientations.txt: open failed: EACCES (Permission denied)

At the heart of it this is indeed a permissions error. It is not certain that the tips regarding resetting permissions will fix this but it seems applicable to run through them just to eliminate them. That being said, having tested some more I see evidence that this permissions landscape might have changed (perhaps more than once) since MiXplorer's developer was last here and since the last MiX beta.

Testing creation and editing of new text file in /android/data/com.google/android.video on external and internal storage on Android 11 stock moto rooted magisk in MiX XDA 6.58.5 (non API specific).

- In internal SD the file is created OK and after being edited and closed and reopened, it shows the results of the edit.

- In external SD card in the same folder structure the new text file is created but then when an attempt is made to edit it the result is the original file and a new file with "(1)" appended to the file name both of which have no contents. File can be created but no write permission to edit - has been reported before.

Here it gets weirder:

- A MiX log indicates that document providers have previously been configured for

/storage/emulated/0/Android/obb
/storage/emulated/0/Android/media
/storage/emulated/0/Android/data
/storage/emulated/0/[other non related folder out of this structure]
/storage/[external drive label]/
/storage/[external drive label]/Android/obb
/storage/[external drive label]/Android/data

BUT

Immediately, the document provider for the root of external storage stands out as an oddity because it is known that we are no longer allowed to assign document provider at the top level of the drive. How this got carried over from previous versions or added a new I do not know. Even more strange is that now, when following the routine to add document providers for those directories, on both internal and external storage after navigating in the native picker to the /android directory the only directory visible there is media.

It is possible that some MiXplorer settings got migrated over from previous android version on this device, and that is the only way I could explain the document provider for the root of external storage, but I definitely could see all the directories within /android on internal and external storage and was able to create document providers for them in the past. Other users have reported the closing of a loophole that allowed developers to work around scope storage. I wonder if this has been done within OS security updates or Google services from play store. This could explain the inconsistencies I see on my device and the differences in experiences regarding these permissions which don't run exclusively along the lines of different android versions.

With this Scoped storage there is still some odd behaviour, I was having a play around and cannot delete or paste files into the root of android/data I get the file manager permission loop, I then tried copying a mp3 to the files folder of mixplorer silver, I could play it but it would not let me delete nor cut and paste it out of the folder, using the full root path I could though, think this is the same issue as that thing about deleting cached images that came up and I posted a log about, Hootan who I hope is well will need to have a look to iron some of these issues with the android/ folders out @dari-woka try and play your video, copy/paste by using the full root path to see what happens

Should also say I am on android 13 and using a Pixel 4a, will try and get a log posted

Yeah having a problem copying the logs from android/data/mix sliver although going through full root works

Thanks for your answers.

I have tried another app (long time ago since havent used it), Root explorer (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?hl=en&id=com.speedsoftware.rootexplorer&pli=1), and with it, in Android/data I can copy/paste, delete, edit... the problem is that it does not have media player integrated for videos, audio..

    Regarding v6.60.0-BETA B23020860 compared to change-log (which may be based on 6.60.0_B23020850) some observations (and possible problems with new search separated into following post)

    • Added WhatsApp, Telegram, Twitter, Instagram bookmarks.

    These might not appear until: Drawer > menu > reset defaults. New ones and the existing built in search bookmarks, and default bookmarks for the individual drives may be moved from groups in the middle or bottom to the top. This is somewhat expected and reorganizing them was not very difficult but that may vary depending on how bookmarks have been arranged.

    • Added supporting images for Convert feature.

    Select image > menu > convert [added to task list as a "convert" job] > invoke job > select "To" (output file type).

    Results may vary depending on the nature of the source file which makes it hard to distinguish potential issues. I witnessed apparent failure and apparent success with each of the following three file types, .JPG, .BMP and .GIF, Fail: in one case a toast reported that the job was not possible but in others the job seems to proceed then said no file was created. Also with each of the aforementioned three file types there were apparent successful operations where the status bar was visible and there was a toast indicating one file processed but I cannot find where converted files are. It's possible that the apparent successes were converted in place without new timestamps but I'm not sure what the expectations are . I advise people test this only on duplicate expendable test material. Meanwhile, I'm more concerned about the search function issues which were discovered while attempting to find the converted files. The people who want this conversion feature can test it.

    @HootanParsa, possible issues with new search.

    • Optimized searching speed.

    Although I've not had a chance to time whole-device searches, the new search was incidentally tested while exploring the results of the convert feature, and there may be a problem with search that is more important than speed, and which may be the reason why some of us preferred the slower and more reliable straight-up search. :)

    Recursive searches seem to be ignoring the fact that the search was invoked from a particular folder (IE intended to go recursively down from there, not up) so rather than finding items within the designated branch (active folder) of the tree the search is finding all matching items across all internal and external storage, even those outside that path..

    To reproduce:
    Navigate into directory (lets call it folder X) on external storage > Search button > recursive (advanced) search panel > contains = [criteria] > Go.

    Expected behavior (existing in versions prior to this one):
    Only items which match the criteria AND which reside within that part of the directory tree (folder X) are found.

    Current behavior in this version: all items which match the criteria and exist anywhere on internal or external storage, even outside the search path, are found.

    EG:
    In previous versions of MiX, a search for a DOT (my simple "all files" search) from the tested folder would find about 750 files in that folder but in this beta the same search on the same media yields all matching 23,000+ files in all internal and external storage.

    In a repeat test to eliminate possible anomalies caused by searching for a DOT, search was done for a combination of two letters which are used in a small number of files in the intended search directory as well as other storage locations. In previous versions of MiX that search returns the one file in that part of the tree and which contained those two characters in sequence, but the same search on the same media in the beta version yields all 32 files containing that combination of letters anywhere on internal or external storage.

    Hi...

    When transferring files between two android 10 and android 13 stock no root devices and vice-versa with MiXplorer v.6.59.1 B23020180, using the FTP server,

    I detected a behavior that was inconsistent with the enabled settings:

    more precisely after having set as "work folder" /storage/emulated/0/Download selected "Force use of this folder" and clicked on "Save", the transfers are always concluded at the path /storage/emulated/0/.

    Secondly, it also seems that the setting to force a specific folder is not remembered. In fact, re-entering the FTP server settings after having made the "Force use of this folder" and "Save" modification, the box is found unchecked.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this behavior normal?

    Cheers...

    The root folder for clients is contextual, based on how the server was started, and there are at least three different ways to invoke servers, one of which for instance would invoke it at the currently visible directory, and others which should open it at the designated location.

    The servers FAQ post is woefully out of date regarding the "home" folder, AKA root of client view (not to be confused with bookmark Home page) but other stuff there has been recently updated, and reviewing that post regarding starting servers (and some other things) might be generally helpful. https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-65157350/

    To the point of your specific question, if the server is invoked from directly from bottom bar then root to clients should be the same as the currently active folder in the MiXplorer UI on the server device. If the server is invoked from within the server configuration panel then root to clients should be the designated folder from the configuration panel.

    Factors:
    - If left blank then the the home directory will be auto populated by the root of internal storage (as you may have witnessed).
    - Different clients may yield somewhat different behavior. Full client such as Filezilla on desktop recommended for testing and set up before using native Windows, iOS, or Linux file explorers.

    I am on the latest beta downloaded from the link in this post (betas are not available here, BTW). Just noticed that I cannot navigate to the parent directory using the 'breadcrumbs' feature. Shows 'Null', when, in fact, the folder exists. Anyone face this problem, yet? Any solution? And, where/how can I get WhatsApp, Telegram, Twitter, Instagram bookmarks?

    @m0han Ninja-ed me but, maybe Undo is not quite all back. Not posting as implied criticism, I've been on a deep dive into the Rabbit Hole this Evening (or Morning or Afternoon) and just came up for air after a few hours so here we go.

    6.59.0-BETA B23012410, Stock Moto A10 rooted magisk, testing with files on external SD. Settings > More settings, now includes all 3 options: Recycle bin, Undo, and Remember delete but, I’m not seeing how to use them properly or there are still issues with them. Details below;

    - With only Recycle Bin enabled then recycled files are sent to the .recycle folder and can be restored manually but there is no apparent option in the menu. The deleted files in the .recycle folder retain their original names but without something like the menu that was used for the old undo function, a user would have to know the file name and search for it or search for all files in the .recycle folder to find the item to restore.

    - With only Undo enabled then after copy or move (or delete) operations, there is a Menu > undo item but invoking it yields toast “no item”.

    - With both Recycle Bin and Undo enabled, then the same as above: after copy or move or delete operations, there is a Menu > undo item but invoking it yields toast “no item”.

    - The .recycle folder (when not deleted between tests) seems to contain the files that were deleted with Recycle Bin enabled, and also seems to contain the folders for the copy/moves (although those folders contain no identifiable files.

    - With both Recycle Bin and Undo disabled, a file that is Deleted via Select > menu > tap delete > acknowledge permanent = is actually deleted and does not force the creation of the. recycle folder. That is good but…

    - Now we get to the drum I may beat until the skin on my hand or the skin of the drum starts to crack. With both Recycle Bin and Undo disabled, Select > long press deletes still creates the .recycle folder and copies the file there. I don’t care what is done with the Recycle Bin because I don’t use it and that it sort the point. I dont use it but it still can happen. Even with all relevant options disabled it is all too easy for an intended delete operation to become a file copy operation into it another folder unbeknownst to the user and not with the scope of familiar locations where it might be discovered. Please give us a way to disable this.

    Notes:

    Remember delete option remained disabled throughout testing.

    .recycle folder was deleted between major test segments,

    BTW @HootanParsa, assuming that both Beta and XDA version might be using the .recycle folder, are there any concerns for people who use Recycle Bin in multiple version of MiX (XDA, Silver, Beta)? This is not of concern to me as I only Recycle Bin in the beta for testing (so there is nothing potentially placed there by the XDA version is at risk) but I was curious about this.
    - 'Remember Delete option' will remember the last selected option in dialog.
    - Uncheck 'Recycle bin' to hide the 'Recycle bin' option in dialog. Then you can only long press on Delete button to send files to recycle bin and delete later.
    - 'Undo' is a separate feature to also be able to undo some other operations. I added this option because I'm afraid the operations in the older devices will become slower. The saved file paths are encrypted.

    The reason for enabling 'Recycle bin' by default is that some users sent me messages (some with F words) about losing their files, because they thought they will go to recycle bin like in the other operating systems.

    Hello everyone, about last discussion I think the developer must implement a feature to read in the brain of every Mix user, through the front camera, to auto guess if user prefer to have undo and trash option enabled or not. So user will have those settings auto enabled/disabled according to his own preference read directly from his own brain without manually doing it in settings...
    I'm sure it will fail in few cases but it will be worth it to implement this feature anyway....

    Can you add beta testing for the playstore silver version?
    I can, but I won't. :)

    Would be a nice update to the FAQ:

    Added deeplinks to turn the servers on and off:
    - https://mixplorer.com/app/ftp/trigger
    - https://mixplorer.com/app/sftp/trigger
    - https://mixplorer.com/app/http/trigger
    - https://mixplorer.com/app/smb/trigger

    @HootanParsa

    Maybe these links could be stored somewhere in the app and could be copied directly.
