Android downloads saving to internal memory instead of SD card

I have Brave on my Moto G configured to download to my SD card, which in Brave is correctly displayed as /storage/5C12-9CBA/Android/data/com.brave.browser/files/Download. However when I download a page it is stored to internal memory instead, at /store/emulated/0/Android/data/com.brave.browser/files/Download


  1. Configure brave to store to SD card via 3-dot-menu -> Downloads -> Gear Icon -> Download location, set to “SD Card”
  2. Download any site via 3-dot-menu -> Download icon
  3. Use a file manager to check where the file was stored.

Brave Version
1.18.77, Chromium 87.0.4280.101

Device / OS version
Moto G Power, Android 10, build QPMS30.80-63-6-8-3
