Write access to SD card without Android folder

Post by *MaxX » 2018-12-24, 10:24 UTC

I have Android 7 and the last version of TC.
When I copy some files to SD card via TC, the folder "Android" is being created at the root of SD.
If I create empty read-only file with the same name (so that folder can't be created) TC can't get write access to SD,
but X-Plore works fine.
Is there any solution for TC.
p.s.
I really need this file at the root of SD for some reasons.

TC is getting write access via the official "Documents" programming functions. It goes via the Android "Files" app to write to the card. I have no idea what X-Plore is using, I don't have its source. I'm not aware of any other functions which allow writing to SD card, except for root functions.
