Categories deleted...at bottom of screenCategories deleted...at bottom of screenSo  this is under settings and notifications. Under each app there is randomly categories deleted showing at the bottom. I am unable to click on it to maybe pop something up or let me know what it means. So I would like to know what exactly this categories deleted means and how in the world can I tell which categories were deleted.

I haven't finished reading this yet but I'm excited too because I am going through the exact same thing and I'm very curious as to why it shows categories deleted

This worked on my new S21plus.

I use Textra texting app.  Wanted to have my own notification sound, but there was no "Ringtone" option.   Instead, bottom line said 5 categories deleted.   But app needs access to "Storage" in order to work.   I found this solution on another forum:  "go into settings > apps > 3 dots upper right corner tap it > go to reset app preferences".   "Ringtone" now appears, can set any desired ringtone for text notifications.   IT WORKS!!!

Very informative,  tells you what you want to know.  It would be sensible to have a log file pop up when you press on the delete so that it would help you know which files had been deleted  so you aren't looking for files that no longer exist. Thank you
