I have a Samsung s5 running Android v6.0.1 and a Samsung s9+ running v8.0.0. Neither are rooted.
When I plug either phone into PC running Windows 8.1, I can't see any
.hidden folders on the phones via Windows File Explorer.
Folders that don't start with a
. are visible.
I've made sure that the phones are connected in USB "File Transfer Mode"
And that Windows File explorer is configured to show hidden files.
I know I used to be able to see all folders, even the
.hidden ones on the s5 at least.
I've tried clearing the Media Storage app cache, and rebooting both the phone and the PC.
Any other solutions to get access back.
