    Hi all,

    I downloaded a file using Download Blazer. I can see the file on my Nexus 7, but when I connect it to a PC the file does not appear in the directory. I've tried moving it to a new directory, but that didn't work.
    Any ideas?

    Thankz

    Do you see the file with a file manager (like ES File Explorer) on your N7 ?

    The file is probably not displayed on the PC but it may still be there, just hidden.

    Hi, yes I can see the file on the Nexus (I use Astro File Manager). But when I navigate to the same directory on the PC, the file is not there.

    Thanks

    Wait, I found it! Thanks JanComputerman for that comment about it being hidden. I changed the viewing options in Windows Explorer to show hidden files and there it was!
    Thanks guys for your replies! :)
