Acces to files with Xamarin.Android (solved)

André Lamothe 0 Reputation points

Hi I develop personal applications Android 12 with Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 Version 17.5.4 and Xamarin. Some news problems with this version.

  • The only files I can now access are in the directory Android > data > appName > file. It's a problem of security level ?
  • When I deploy the project, files in Android > data > appName > file are erased. How to avoid this happening ? Sincerely Yours

    I figured how to access all the files in the root directories of Phone or SD card.

    1. Set MANAGE__EXTERNAL__STORAGE permission in android manifest
    2. Activate manage all files in android settings of your phone > applications > permissions (else the access is limited to multimedia files)
