    Default Need help understanding file system

    nexus7 running 4.2.2 and using "filemanager" to access the file system

    I've uploaded a test file from windows7 using MTP to the "Nexus 7/Internal Storage/Music" folder

    Then, using filemanager on the nexus 7, I can see this folder under several different paths... for example;

    /mnt/sdcard
    /sdcard
    /storage/sdcard0
    /storage/emulated/0
    /storage/emulated/legacy
    (there may be more...)

    1. Can someone point me to a site to help me understand this a bit better?
    2. When accessing the file system, which of the above should I use to manually manage files?


    Thanks in advance,
    Beverly Howard

    Can't help explaining it, but I use "/storage/emulated/0" which I think is the default.
