A22 5 G - Storage invisible by file managers

Hi, can any one shed some light about sorage issue i have. Apps on my new phone save data to storage\emulated\0\\Android\data ....... Problem is that those files are invisible by build-in/thrid party file managers.

it is now annoying that I cant see images or videos downloaded from my CCTVs . It makes the phone useless if I cant download any 3rd part app from Play Store that uses storage for media files.

I can conect phone to PC and extract them manually but I cant carry my PC with me all the time when I am out and download new file.

Phone was synchronized with old Galaxy S6 via samsung Smart Switch. Old files copied to A22 are visible.

How can I resolve the Issue. Do I need to factory reset and setup phone again?

I tried to reinstall apps but I ended with all data being deleted and new dowloads are still invisible.

Or are there some settings changing visibility ?

Thanks for any advice

Many apps give you the option to change the data location. Also, using Google Files with the Show Hidden Files option set should allow you to see the data files. It certainly does on my A22 5G.
