That is not 100% correct... Since version 5.7.8 and on Android 8.0 or higher, G-Stomper Studio saves your work in:
Before that update, G-Stomper Studio saved your work in:
It's important to know that "/storage/emulated/0" is equivalent to "/sdcard" is equivalent to what you see as internal storage when you connect your device to a PC over USB.
"/storage/emulated/0" and "/sdcard" are just symbolic links or mount points, both pointing to the same storage location.
Generally, all G-Stomper apps have saved their data based on "/storage/emulated/0/......." since the beginning of time.
It's the path what has changed from "/gstomper" to "/Android/data/com.planeth.gstomper/files/gstomper"... within the internal storage.

As mentioned above, all your recent G-Stomper Studio files are located at:
Just backup that folder and you'll have all G-Stomper Studio files safe.
Note that the path is different for other apps like G-Stomper Producer for example.

but the files I have saved here, aren't anywhere to be found.
Do you know where these files could be found? I'm scared to lose them forever but at the moment it's a price I might pay for the ease of accessing my own samples again.
Using an Android file manager, you'll find them at:
When you connect your phone to your PC over USB and then use the Windows Explorer, then you'll find the files at:
"Computer/<your android device>/Internal shared storage/Android/data/com.planeth.gstomper/files/gstomper"
