Sorry to hear that, I can only imagine how annoying is it and how much time wasted! Your suggestion would be to protect the secure folder with the password before backing up and then deleting the account? Did you use Samsung cloud (and Samsung account) as a back up option or simply copied the files decrypted to another location? Did you deactivate the folder manually or it was gone together with the account? Is it a company device or is it your private one (that means fully managed by your IT admin or partly)? Thanks.

There is the same problem on my phone. It seems to me that the Workspace app is blocking all app permissions from being changed in my secure folder. Only there, there is all as usual outside of secure folder. I think that by agreeing to allow access my employer Office 365 data (called MDM), I passed them control.... over my secure folder! Sounds crazy. And I hope, it's not true and my company doesn't see my secured app list and files in the secure folder... Before I also attempted to create a work account using the special Android feature. Therefore I have two accounts outside of secure folder: the work account with office 365 credentials and the Microsoft account with the same credentials. The problem is that neither of them are in the secure folder, both are outside of it. I don't know if removing either of these accounts can help to regain control over my settings. It's not possible to deactivate MDM, it is managed my company admin and I am afraid if I contact they directly, it will draw attention and they will want to check the content of my secure folder.
