Android studio- SDK tools directory is missing

Android SDK was installed to: C: / Users / user / AppData / Local / android / SDK2 SDK tools directory is missing
It means the Android SDK requires a folder tools, where this SDK was installed. But that Tools folder did not get installed. Probably due to low storage.

[SOLUTION] : Uninstall the Android SDK and install it again. This time just make sure that you have ATLEAST 5GB (though 3.2gb would be enough) free space where ever you are going to install this SDK.
Once the installation is complete, just check whether tools folder is there or not (At the location where you are installing the SDK)

I had this problem on a Mac due to a corporate proxy blocking the installers call to the internet. The phase in which the Android Studio installer is supposed to install the SDK did not happen and the install process just went straight to the SDK tools directory is missing message. Sadly, there was no message stating that a connection could not be made.

To fix the problem, it was required that I list the path to my corporate PAC file by using Configure -> Appearance and Behavior -> System Settings -> HTTP Proxy. I selected Automatic proxy configuration url: and entered the correct URL for the PAC file.

The same problem observed on my side while looking for uiautomatorviewer.bat.
After installing Android studio 3.6.2 (at Win10) I was looking for Android SDK Tools section at SDK Manager. Currently, this section is Hidden as Obsolete.
Fix: uncheck Hide Obsolete Packages, then check the mentioned package and install it – C:Users..AppDataLocalAndroidSdktoolsbin is created.
