comment Where are Messages and other data like Application caches or even Applications saved?
Whether on the device or from the PC, that's only possible if the device is rooted – as Ash-Ishh already pointed out. Though you can access the partitions also without, you can't access the directories you're interested in (e.g. /data/data).

android.izzysoft.de/downloads has downloads for Linux, Mac, and Windows – for a minimal installation of ADB (see the linked question and its answers for details).

And how to bind that to the mouse? AFAIK there's no way to tell Tasker the mouse input directly, but I might have missed that.

comment How do I back up Google Authenticator?
"this is a generally easier method than the one stated above": above and below have no special meaning here, as they very much depend on sort order – so better name the answer you refer to explicitly. Apart from that, though your approach should work, I find it the most complicated of all answers here – so again, "easier" seems to be pretty subjective :)

That's the curse of auto-taskkillers: too many negative side-effects.

comment “Mediaserver” under Power management / Battery usage (xperia ZL)
I bet one of those apps was PowerAmp? I just cannot find the answer currently, but that app seems to have a setting to always trigger the media scanner. Switching that off should cure the issue.

comment Dialog option “Use by default for this action” or “Always” not displaying
If the "chose" dialog is shown, there obviously is no default app configured – so it cannot be disabled (also see GATrawn's comment on this answer).

You might wish to see Android Folder Hierarchy, where the locations in storage are explained.

comment Intent to select Android Security Screen Lock type
With Tasker and the SSP, you can also enable/disable pattern lock, or turn keyguard on/off completely. The latter worked fine for me even with "Slide" on ICS; but with my O4X upgraded to JB, I found no way to disable "Slide"; "Keyguard Off" no longer works for that, be it Tasker's own or SSP. But that might be worth a try for you.
