Description

https://developer.android.com/training/data-storage/compatibility

This is an issue with Android's new scoped storage system. I'm not sure why, but it only manifests on certain devices. My Pixel 2 XL running Android 10 and all the devices I have tested in the Android Emulator running Android 10 do not have this problem, but a user with an Nokia 7.1 does have the issue.

It looks like a temporary workaround might be to set `android:requestLegacyExternalStorage="true"` in the manifest.

Long term I will need to figure out how to redesign file access for scoped storage.
