Hi guys,
anyone have this issue. Not all files and folders are shown on PC when I connect my Nexus to PC. By this, I mean files and folders that are creating when I download it from internet on phone and later when I connect phone to PC those files and folders dont exist there. I can view them only on phone.

Why is this happening?

Ok, I found them.
There is this folder, storage-emulated-legacay-Movies-and here are new files.
Real folder is just Movies.

Why is this like that on Nexus?

I've seen it before. I get this for a few seconds after mounting but they all turn into folders. On the odd occasion it didn't, a reboot usually fixed it

Mine doesn't get fixed, it stays like that only. every time one or the other file is like that.
Is it a bug with MTP?

Tried different;

USB Ports?
USB cables?
Computers?
Drivers?


Did you read the other threads about this same problem? I've seen several here.
