FileTools : Some tools to work with files

If you trying it in Android 11 then you need to grant MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission from Settings.

If not granted then you will only get list of folders and files created by app itself.


… and media files (to be precise).

You can no longer write / save in any folder of the external storage on Android 11. You have to copy / move it (a non-media file) to one of the Shared folders (/Download or /Documents).

Are you sure that should be implemented in Extension ?
I don’t think so.

Yes, some of our app need the file with same name. So, after we download we need to copy & replace old file. It will help us a lot. You are a big coder. Can you help us by adding this features? I am a big fan of yours. Please give us a update with this option​:white_heart:

Why not use Copy or Move method?

I need to move a folder & replace all file inside with same name. But not others file inside. Can u suggest me how to do it. Your extension is not replacing folder files

Copy block can over write the files and Move block can replace the files

your file name and destination path file name should be same to overwrite or replace file

Can you give me a Demo app with the coding you said
