There is some information in this forum thread. Both solutions offered require rooting your phone which sounds like a guarantee invaluation and a risk of bricking it.

Good news. Did you need to root the phone to get to it?

That's even better news. I don't like the idea of hacking through the protection and potentially destroying a phone.

Was my link no help to you? If you wanted me to look further you could ask. It sounds like you used information from the link I posted to find the solution which was to use a tool to back up the sms mugs.

I received a notice giving me 4 days to object. The question closed in just one day with no acknowledgement of my post. I can't ask a question in community support so having to raise it from here.

Some communication may have solved your problem faster. You said you were looking for the folder and several days later that you had a solution. If you said you couldn't find it I could have looked further. Or someone else may have joined in to help.

That's ok. Please remember that there are many people willing to help here. If a question looks like it is back with the asker and waiting for them to come back then people will generally leave it alone.
