btw does ts-binds create a copy of the data of an app for example obb of a game to internal from sd card? because if so it just makes copies of them and doesn't save any space on internal.
Sorry to hear about the support on pie, I actually had thought it works.
No, it doesn't copy the files over, it just links the two folder so the same content is visible (and accessible) from both the folders. However, the files are only stored in the external storage. You can check this by unbinding a folder, the internal storage one would be empty with the files stored in sdcard.
This might confuse the file manager apps that calculate free space (even the settings app), but no content is actually copied over to the internal storage.
The only caution that has to be exercised is to not copy a file/folder between two linked folders, it'll delete the data permanently. So if you've linked two whatsapp folders (say), don't copy files from internal storage/WhatsApp to external storage/WhatsApp or vice versa.
