On Android 11+ you cannot list non-media files, that are not created by the app itself (without using SAF). And even with SAF you cannot list non-media files in the

  • root dir of the external storage and in the
  • /Download folder.

So the only way to list all files / duplicates (non-media & media files) is to request and grant MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission.

How to setting manage_external_storage? In setting section on which option i must turn it on?

Here is my block... But there is a message there is no file to copy

You did not use the "10" blocks, to save the pdf to the ASD.

Android version?
