Hi. I am not getting any answers on the Xamarin Forms, Cross Platform forum (https://forums.xamarin.com/discussi...clstorage-where-are-the-files-going-to#latest), so I thought that I would try here.

My own app, using Xamarin Forms, PCL ,PCLStorage, writing a file to Either the Android\Droid emulator, or to my actual Galaxy Edge, and I cannot find the file on the device afterwards. The code displays show the file path is '/data/user/O/SurveyCheck.Droid/files/lou.txt'. I can write the file, get and read the file, but when searching storage on the device, I cannot find it (there is no storage path that starts with '/data/user/O'. Where the heck is the file, is It hidden, I just cannot find it.

Is there an app that I should purchase that is like the 'File explorer' on windows, where I can do searches (that will find my files)?

Still have not figured out where the PCLStorage files go, but if you check the other link, using system.io, at least I have files that I can get to now.
