From what I understand, on a non rooted device running 4.4.2 Kitkat, apps are not allowed to write to the external SD card EXCEPT for their 1 dedicated app folder.

The folders I am looking for have a directory like:

Sdcard1/Android/Data/com."appnamegoeshere".

I can find such directories in my internal storage (sdcard0) but nothing like it in my external SD! The only folders I can browse to there are ones I have created myself! Yes my apps were installed on/ have been moved to the external SD and yes, I have it set my file manager to view hidden files and folders.

I keep seeing screenshots of everyone else using these directories to somewhat bypass the ****ery of 4.4, but why don't I have them!?

Thanks so much x
