TCv9.12: I see empty folders '/data' and '/efs' on my phone

Post by *foscmgt » 2018-03-27, 14:21 UTC

Hello again Mr. Ghisler.

Another question.
From Total Commader 9.12 on the computer via FTP client, I can see the contents of all the folders in the root directory of my rooted cell phone.
But the folders '/ data' and '/efs' appear empty.

From Total Commader 2.90 on the cell phone there is no problem. I can see this folders contents.

What can I do to access these folders from my computer with Windows 7?

Thanks in advance.

You can't. The plugins are not able to access root only folders, only Total Commander can. Why? You can't just open a file in a root folder and read data from it, e.g. to send the file via FTP. You can only use shell commands like cp in a shell started with admin rights. The Android app itself cannot run with root rights.
