    My daughter’s Nokia 4.2 was updated to Android 11 and we can’t find any of her photos or videos anymore, and several apps (e.g., Instagram, OneDrive) crash and won’t launch. She has restarted repeatedly but it’s not fixing it.

      Hi Joe,
      Maybe try updating all the app from Play Store. Many of the apps supported by Android 10 crash on Android 11. So that should help.
      Also, Android 11 changed the way permissions work. Are you sure you have given the apps trying to access photos and files are given storage permissions?

      You can also raise a ticket in the Nokia community. They should be able to help you out with the changes they made.
