Hi folks - I'm trying to use dolphin to copy music from my desktop to my phone. The phone is mounted and fully writable, but when i try to copy a directory of directories onto the phone (where some of the subdirs already exist) i get this error:

Code:

Could not make folder /Pixel 3/Internal shared storage/Music/<blah blah>


in this example, <blah blah> is a pre-existing directory on the device - so dolphin shouldn't even be trying to create it. If i descend into the directory tree, i can copy the files just fine. Likewise - if the files already exist, dolphin gives the expected dialog box that asks if i want to overwrite the file or skip it. So something is wrong with just the pre-existing directories. Anyone ever encounter this?

thanks in advance!
