    do you have a file manager? That should find it. If not, try ES File Explorer in the Play Store. It's free.

    I actually used ES file manager to do those creations and renaming, it does not show modified folders. Also when phone is connected with windows laptop they are not shown.

    Does your folder/file names start with a period? In Linux and Android, adding a period to the start of a file/folder name makes that object a hidden object.

    You'll have to go into the options of your file manager program and enable viewing of hidden files/folders to see it again.

    Thanks, that works... Must say that ES file managers setting is not too easy to use, since many option is under submenus and beyond.
