[SOLVED (?)] I can not browse app folders... now!

As I responded to a question, I realized that the last test apps I have on a smartphone and on an emulator are dated 11/11/2014.

I can no longer see new apps through the explorer of Win7, Eclipse or "monitor". I can see only those up to 11/11.

I reinstalled android sdk tools but same situation.

Any suggestions?


[the last sw I have installed was DropBox, Nov 4: can be it the problem?]

Some viruses can sleep until...!

However, it seems to me that there is not dropbox active services that can create this problem.

Really strange!

Soon I open the window and throw pc, smartphone and even myself!

Then I recovered all because I'm on the ground floor :D

I would suggest you jump first so you can catch them before braking :)

After I reinstalled the Android SDK Tools, emulators have become slower.

What can prevent the display of the new projects? B4A has not been touched, the tool is "new", I can see the old projects, so there may not be a problem of antivirus or firewall...!

The only thing that comes to mind is a virus, although an antivirus is allways active on the PC.

I launch the antivirus scan, then I have no other ideas.

These are the Permissions for the EMPTY not empty sdcard. Are they right? Are they like yours?

[P.S. maybe this is not essential, since I used emulators and a real device, both without root account.

But what on earth could have happened?!?!

I uninstalled DropBox, installed and run CCleaner ... nothing!]

File permissions.

If I understand correctly, after the first character, there are three groups "rwx" to read, write, execute for the owner, for the group and for anyone.

The first character should be "d" for folders, but for the sdcard (on my emulator and device) it is "l"


Found this:

so, "l" = symbolic link!

It is very clear now! (sarcarsm :))



P.S.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbolic_link

then, for some reason, the file pointed to by that link is probably empty (if the link is correct!).

Well, now on my smartphone the app folder is in:
/mnt/sdcard/Android/data/MyappFolder
(as before!!!)

but NOW on emulators:
/storage/sdcard/Android/data/MyappFolder

I don't know why, but it is enough, for me.


[P.S. I have a sort of app template, in which there is:
#CanInstallToExternalStorage: False
I never changed it]
