    I have a moto G 3rd gen with 16gb internal memory. When I upgraded to 6.0 I bought a 32gb sd card to use as internal storage and this seemed to set up fine. I then went to ecnrypt my device which also seemed to go fine.

    However now when I look at my phone on my PC via USB all I see is an SD card of 29.4GB, no internal memory. In addition to this, the files are easily readable and can be copied which I wouldn't expect if it had been encrypted properly. Does anyone know what's going on !!!???

    Many Thanks

    Adoptable storage - totally different. Your 16GB of internal storage is still there.

    However now when I look at my phone on my PC via USB all I see is an SD card of 29.4GB, no internal memory.
    The PC can't read encrypted storage.

    In addition to this, the files are easily readable and can be copied which I wouldn't expect if it had been encrypted properly.
    If they're "encrypted" by just being hidden, Windows doesn't see that, so the files are visible. (Windows and Linux are opposites - encrypting a file on Linux usually doesn't do anything if you're looking at it in Windows.)
