That should be MTP then. Does a forced refresh of the folder in whatever file explorer you're using on the computer do any good then?

OK, so if I got it right: The files are in the Montano folder, no longer in Downloads – but only the computer thinks different? Then that might be rather an OS question (implementation). What's the OS on the computer, and what are you using to check (e.g. "Windows 7", "Explorer via MTP")?

comment How to save an ISO (or similar) of a whole Lexibook tablet (Android SO)?
Tat "Nandroid tool" is part of custom recoveries. Details can be found via our nandroid tag-wiki. Besides, such a transfer only works between identical devices; never restore a Nandroid backup from a different device, as that is very likely to cause a "brick". Carefully read all related information before you proceed.

Wait a second: In your question you write "This is fine and good, with both Mantano and ES File Explorer on the device reporting that the files are in Mantano/books" – but now you write "I've looked in the Mantano folder, and the files aren't there." So, to be or not to be (there)? With what have you checked this time? To get a clear idea, we need some consistency here :)

comment How can I start GPS track logging from an intent?
Wasn't me, Dan. Your question seems very clear to me (or I wouldn't have answered it). So to close-voters: Explain yourselves! Maybe it's not your "area of expertise"? :)

comment How can I start GPS track logging from an intent?
It would certainly need a lot of work to satisfy your wishes, Dan. I won't say it's perfect – but it's the only one I know. I didn't stumble upon any GPS logger coming with Tasker support (yet). And about "how to find the intent to start", we should switch roles (I'm asking, and you can answer) :) Would love to give a more convenient answer...

Couldn't it rather be the files were copied to the Mantano directory (instead of being moved)? Have you checked that with ES?

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts, Loren! I've just added the insufficient-memory tag to your question. You might wish to follow up to its tag-wiki for some first aid.

comment LG G2 D802(T) Recovery Issue
rooting alone might not be sufficient. Is the bootloader unlocked? I have an LG O4X, and there you only can install a custom recovery after unlocking the bootloader. I'd wonder if that would be different for the G2.

comment Mac OS X fastboot is just waiting (HTC M8 T-Mobile)
Are you sure the device connected is booted into fastboot mode? To me that looks like it's booted "normally".
