    I've got a Lenovo Tab M10 running Android 10.

    When I take a card from my LUMIX camera and look at it on my PC it has 3 directories DCM, MISC and Private.

    When I plug it into the tablet via a USB C card reader I find the tablet has created a whole load of additional directories, namely Alarms, Android, download, LOST.DIR, movies, Music, Notifications, Picture, Podcasts and Ringtones.

    Is this a feature or is there a setting to stop this behaviour please?

    With the Android devices I have, AFAIK it creates Android and LOST.DIR on removable media, and that's it.

    I've never seen things like Podcasts. Like podcasts is not even a standard feature of Android is it? Maybe creating these additional folders is some function the manufacturer(Lenovo) added to your tablet?

    I new to Android so I don't know what's normal or not. I come from a UNIX and latterly Windows background.
    I've done some more testing and tried setting the write protect tab on the SD card. That stops it as you would assume. BUT it somehow still manages to creat the LOST.DIR.

    I can live with it if it's an Android thing. The camera that the cards from doesn't seem to care so it doesn't cause issues.

    Thanks for all your replies.
