Device: Moto X Pure, Android 6.0, rooted with Magisk. SD Maid has permissions for superuser. 64GB SD card mounted as Portable storage (not adopted)

Issue: I tried the game Puzzle and Dragons for a few days and didn't like it due to a game mechanic, so I uninstalled it. Later, looking through my storage, I found the entire ~100MB storage directory it created when I selected the option to have it store it's update data on my SD card. Instead of trying a manual deletion through the crappy stock android file explorer (not sd maids), i decided to run CorpseFinder instead. Surprise surprise, it did not detect the directory at all. Possibly this is because the directory was not nested in any of the typical "app storage" paths and was just sitting at the root of the SD card. It was named "PAD". Why did SD maid fail to see this and what can i provide to help you diagnose this?

Check in SD Maids Explorer, if the folder shows a ? symbol as icon then it's just a definition issue. Automatic matching doesn't work very well on the root of the sdcard and we have to make due with a "clutter database".

The ? icon should be pressable and take you to a report screen.

Can you attach the necessary information?
Package name of the app and path of the folder SD Maid doesn't know?

Then I can patch this and close the ticket with v4.7.6 😁

package name of app: jp.gungho.padEN

folder path: (sdcardroot)\PAD\

The folder is at the root of the SD card, not the root of internal storage.

@d4rken d4rken added this to the v4.7.6 milestone Aug 1, 2017
