Unable to store more data into data files after update

After the update I haven't been able to properly store more data into my data file because the privacy apps assume it's a virus trying to get in. I just want the old update back without the security update so that way I can add more data to my data file.

Try rebooting into recovery mode, clear the cache, and then run the repair apps option (if available, OS 13). Your phone will restart. Test out. LMK if this helps! GL!

How do I go into recovery mode? I have an S20 and don't understand what repair apps option you are referring to. Thank you for the advice though

Either way, to get into recovery mode:

Turn phone off

Hold the volume up and power buttons simultaneously.

Once you see the Samsung logo, release the power button, but KEEP HOLDING THE VOLUME UP button until your phone is in recovery mode. Clear the cache partition, run the repair apps option (if available), then reboot your device. Test it out. LMK if this helps! GL!

With all due respect, you didn't answer my question about the recovery mode and repair apps.
