got an S2 tablet in November 2015 running 5.1.1. I connect it to a desktop using the cable. I'll create a dir in storage\emulated\0 named logs. If I copy files into \storage\emulated\0\logs from desktop, they'll stay there for a while, but eventually the dir and the files get deleted. How can I not have files disappear?

Are you safely removing the tab from the computer, or are you just unplugging it when you think the copy is done? If you don't safely remove it, the copy probably never completes, and the "files" disappear the next time you restart the tablet. (The files were never on it, only the names had been copied to the directory listing in the tablet.)
