    Default How to copy //mnt/extSdCard/stuff/.Private/* to/from PC

    I have some hidden directories{ ...\.Private} on my Galaxy S3. How can I connect to my PC and view or drag/drop files to/from them? Android seems to hide them from the PC file manager.

    You will need to go into the setting of Window Explorer and set it to show hidden files/folders or you can use File manager on the phone and temporarily remove the .(period) from the name of the directory.

    "You will need to go into the setting of Window Explorer and set it to show hidden files/folders"
    No Joy. Never had them hidden. It's like the phone never exposes them for the PC to discover.

    "or you can use File manager on the phone and temporarily remove the .(period) from the name of the directory."
    Works, but a bit Kludgy. It's faster to pop the uSD card from the phone to the PC. Faster copies too.

    Thanks
