    How to copy //mnt/extSdCard/stuff/.Private/* to<>from PC

    //mnt/extSdCard/Images/.Private is working as intended - hiding content from the Gallery. But it also hides the directory from the file browser on my PC when connected via USB. I want to be able to access/manage these files from my PC, but Android is hiding the hidden directories from the PC.

    How can I do this? Is there an App that will let me drag/drop between ./Private on the phone and directories on my PC??


    Thanks.

    Hasn't your PC's Explorer an option for showing hidden files and folders?

    The "." in front of ".Private" is what is "hiding" that directory. Configuring your file browser to "Show Hidden Files" will make it visible to you.
