[Android BUG] UE4Game Folder not being uninstalled with the rest of the game

Hi there.

Is there a way to get the UE4Game folder, that is created when you install your game onto an android device, to uninstall and delete itself with the rest of the game. Presumably it would do this if it was created in storage/Android/Data/[your project] rather than just storage/, but I don’t know how to get it to do that either.

‘Use ExternalFilesDir for UE4Game Files?’ was one of the first things I enabled but it doesn’t make a difference.

Any help would be great.

Engine Version: 4.18

Device:Samsung Galaxy S7 Android 7.0 Nougat (API 24)

I came across the same issue from some older posts, people using engine version 4.15 and lower, so I guess this is either a returning bug or the issue was never addressed. Didn’t really see any answers on those other posts except to enable ExternalFilesDir, which I already have.
Would love to know if this issue is going to be addressed soon or if I should add a window telling players about the extra folder that will appear in there storage.Thanks

The cold deafening silence that is the unreal answerhub. Maybe I should move this to bug report so it actually gets some attention from the Epic Staff.

I was delete this folder and my next launch failed. LogPlayLevel: adb: Error: Activity class {com.nikolalukic.hangspace/com.epicgames.ue4.SplashActivity} does not exist.

Having the same issue here.
