Android Question disable Scoped Storage


Licensed User
I have a non google aplication running on android 10 with in manifest the line
SetApplicationAttribute (android: requestLegacyExternalStorage, true).
and targetSdkVersion = "29".
No problem to read the name of the external card without user intervention.

On android 11 (api 30), error message!
By studying the changes from Api 29 to 30, it may be that this is from Scoped Storage.

Is there a way to disable Scoped Storage for an app, either on my end as a user or on the app developer's side with the apk file?

How else can you simply find the path to the external card? (ex: storage/2EFF785)
