Files starting with the
. character (hidden files under linux/unix/OSX conventions) are not being displayed when connected to a Galaxy Stratosphere II via either Android File Transfer or simple-mtpfs. I've got more than ten such files in the root directory of my SD Card and none of them are being displayed.
This may be a related question: Not all files are visible over MTP
However, that question doesn't mention anything about dot-files, which seem to be my issue here. Is this a known issue or a "feature" of the MTP protocol?
