from user:

The profile export and also the download of files from conversations did only create empty files.
It looks like the Cwtch App did not request the correct permissions under Android 11. It did only request the READSTORAGE but not the WRITESTORAGE.
Therefore Cwtch is able to create for storing data for example a new directory inside the default download folder but at the default location and aldo at the newly created subfolder the filey are always empty (size 0).
Cwtch would probably need the "all files access" in order to store the files. 
READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

needs investigation but if we aren't asking for those perms on start up (correct behaviour) then we need to ask when we do the export
