I also thought that. Because another user reported about this earlier. Now they have increased the security.

Android 11 has blocked permission to the data folder. It's normal. It came with the new permission functions and "Scoped Storage" concept (third party apps can only access their own app specific files/folders).

However, you can use a third party file manager app (ex: Files app) if you want to access/copy files from the data folder. But still you can't copy files to the data folder.

Ah alright. 🤗  You already have a workaround then.
