In Android 11 google removed access to Data and OBB folders.

So to access them you need to download 3rd party file Managers from play store.

Hello !! I am also using Android 11(galaxy a51) and here is a screenshot from my file manager, where u can clearly see data and obb folders are accessible. so try wiping out the cache memory by going in recovery mode ( switch off your phone, plug your phone in computer and then keep pressing volume up and power key together). in recovery mode find wipe cache partition and then press okay and restart your phone. this should fix this your prblm.

No more access in A11, but you can download 3rd party apps which can allow you to do so
