    Default Folder Issues on Galaxy Note 10.1


    1) Files downloaded into the standard download folder cannot by copied or moved to other folders. Yet, I can copy files into it.

    2) I've changed the default download folder to a folder on my external sd card. But all apps ignore this setting, and insist on downloading into the default location. Not really a problem, I just can't copy/move the files.

    3) When connected to my W7 PC, folders and files were copied and names changed instantly and beautifully. Now, a name change can take a very, very long time.

    4) Images copied via USB used to be automatically added to the Gallery. Now they aren't. A restart would add the files to the Gallery.

    5) ES File Explorer: I did connect to a DropBox cloud service folder. Things worked well, until yesterday. I cannot copy/move files from the DropBox cloud folder in ES FE.

    My system:
    - Android 4.2.2
    - I'm using ES File Explorer
    - Google kept nagging me to use Drive. I did a few days ago. Perhaps this has screwed things up?
    - I've already removed DropBox, but there's still no improvement.

    Q) How do I fix these folder issues with my Note 10.1?

    Q) How do I stop using drive?

    Q) Do I need to do a fresh install? How would I do that?

    I don't think Drive had anything to do with this. The issue may be a problem with ES File Explorer. Have you emailed them and asked?
