Go to>Settings>Storage>Miscellaneous Files.
Here are many files in the list but you have to find the file matching with the app locker or vault,
for example, App Locker official app creates a folder named with.MySecurityData
I have noticed one thing that the folder name started with a dot it means that the app locker use dot to hide data.
Note the size of the folder or think about it yourself.
Once you have found the folder then find a software or app who supports pre-dotted files. You can use your PC or download this file manager.
Use a PC or file manager to read a file with a starting dot.
Once you have selected your choice to see the folder with dot name. Then read the files and find your data.
You can use the mind to match both file sizes.
Tips to find data.
I found my all data by matching the size of the file, I mean that I know the size of my file was 30mb then I only selected and moved files from a dotted folder with the size of 30mb. Some app lockers keep data in many files. So find it carefully.
