I was looking at the API documentation for the SpecialFolder enumeration, and it appears it needs to be filled out. :) So my question is, in regards to Android, which file paths do these enumerations map to? Specifically, I'm interested in ApplicatonData, LocalApplicationData, and Personal. But it would be useful to know what these file paths are in Android and what type of data is appropriate to store in each location. Anyone know?

    +1 for completing the documentation. Try searching for SpecialFolder and then click on the autocomplete link:

    Create separate class in your android project.
    Use the following assembly references and erase all the default..,

    using System;
    using System.IO;
    using Xamarin.Forms;
    using (your android project).Droid;
    It worked for me

    I repeat.
    Is Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal kept in case of an app update?
