    Hi all,

    I use my older tablet only for reading. I have a bunch of ebooks on there and they are (well, should be...) stored in the internal storage, in a folder I made called "eBooks".

    The books are still readable on my tablet, but I just went to put a new book on there and the folder has vanished... Any idea why this has happened and where it's gone? I've tried showing any hidden items, but that didn't work. I have no idea what's happened. It should just be there...

    When I look on my eBook viewer, it shows the folder called "eBooks" in the folder structure (like when I'm trying to add a new book to the library from storage) but when I plug the tablet into my PC with a usb cable (same way I've always done) the folder is missing.

    Help!

    Which tablet? When you connect via USB and swipe down the notification panel on the tablet, do you see a USB connection icon? If so, tap that and make sure MTP (or File Transfer) is selected.

    It's a Lenovo tablet (i forget the name. It's about 4 years old). I've been using this tablet for the last 4 years to read eBooks and digital comics and I've never had an issue until now. The file transfer should be fine as all the folders with my digital comics, etc. are present (that I created myself and put on there), and I can add/delete things from there as normal (which I do roughly once per week). The only folder that's been affected is the eBooks one. I only noticed when I went to put a new book on the tablet a few days ago. As the OP says, the eBook viewer can still access the folder from the tablet, I just can't see it in the folder structure when I plug the tablet into my PC...

    Could it be that you're looking in the wrong storage area (i.e., Internal Storage vs SD card)?
