I have a GalaxyNexus running Android 4.2.2
I just want to quickly backup some data files to my PC. I'm pretty sure I've done this many times before, but I guess not on this phone.
I have the Android SDK and tools installed on my PC. I attach the phone by USB I run monitor.bat and go to the File Explorer tab
Now, I can see and explore the file system.
I believe the folders I want to back up (like DCIM and Download) are under /storage/sdcard0 When I run a file explorer app on my phone, I see the folders under this path. However, when I run the File Explorer from my PC I don't see the folders.
Do I have to do something to unmount the folders first before I can access them through USB? Do I have to shut off MTP and put the device in USB storage mode?
What am I missing?
