the errors where parthely in german but i wrote a hopfully good enough translation behind them.

for the phone:

  • xiaomi mi 8
  • 256 GB (9% used)

This answer shows that the folder is related to Google Cloud backups.

I experimented by deleting it. When I restarted the phone, it was re-created. The files and folders that were in it, were also re-created. I'll assume that it is safe to delete.

  • Thanks for your help it helpt me to get a bit further (and for some reson it fixed some unrelated issuses with PayPal and Youtube constantly crashing) but now "/data/user_de/0/a0Z6S+HEvYJ8pZcV0,E9,ymTR56jLMsc8iPdsD/xrvhihYJWRngkT87Y1vpUA/7n2ZEWwmUMUZ60wLuEvTHmgwlHzDypp2T3fIgZyeBAC" is the problem. On any chanse do you now if i can delete that? – Philipp Aug 19 at 19:41
  • @Philipp My phone has /data/user_de/0 folder that seems to contains preferences and databases of apps installed. All the folders are name after app packages. Try to navigate to that folder you named and check that file. If the folder and the file are irrelevant, delete them. – Reddy Lutonadio Aug 19 at 21:41
  • So i got into the folder but all the folders have names like "a0Z6S+HEvYJ8pZcV0,E9,ymTR56jLMsc8iPdsD" do you have any clue if thats just encrypted names or something? and ther are no folders with the name of apps. – Philipp Aug 20 at 7:34
  • @Philipp Yes, they might be encrypted. From Android, copy and paste that folder to a different place, then from TWRP delete it, and try carrying on the backup. – Reddy Lutonadio Aug 20 at 8:34
  • cant i coppy an paste it vom TWRP, bcouse i dont know how to get to the folder in any other way – Philipp Aug 20 at 8:39
