Can't see Drastic folder on PC and save problem

Postby avid » Wed Aug 02, 2017 2:05 pm

Hello
I've played some games on my previous phone and stopped months ago. Now i have new phone and despite i instaled drastic through googleplay i can't see DraStic folder when i connect phone to PC, and this is the only folder i can't see. I can see it on the phone tho.

Secondly, i coppied whole Drastic folder from my last phone on my pc. This old folder has like 6 subfolders while new Drastic folder (on phone) has ~15. Are there saves in old drastic folder from my games? I dont want to start every game from begging.

The first issue is an Android problem. The media transfer feature of Android tends not to refresh when it should.
You may want to try an app such as this to force Android to scan the DraStic folder: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... anmediaplz

You should have your saves in the DraStic/backup and DraStic/savestates folders on the folder you copied to your PC.

These are the only files i have in DraStic folder on my old phone.

Some say they have these folders in android/data/com.dsemu... folder in which case, i don't have this folder on my old phone. If that is related with that first problem you explained then nothing can be done since screen is not working ;(

All I can say is consider rebooting the old phone a few times and hoping that it refreshes. This is an Android issue and we can't do anything about it. If you happen to have enabled debugging on this device, you could always do an
adb pull /sdcard/DraStic/

So,
on my new phone, your solution worked and i can see drastic folder now. This folder has many subfolders including "Savestates".

Somehow i managed to download this APP and run it only once on my old phone (only 1/6 of screen is working so i had luck), but still my drastic folder looks the same as on the pic, so the saves aren't there.

The saves have to be somewhere on that phone but i coulnd't find them anywhere :/

Can you see the files on your phone with a flie browser? I assume that your phone is connecting to your PC using MTP, which is middling at best. You can also use Airdroid or similar apps (I use Websharing) to browse and transfer them wirelessly and avoid these problems.

like i mentioned, this old phone where i can't find saves is 80% unusable, the only part of screen that is working is that 1/5 on the top so i can't even unlock it.

Try to enable android usb debugging some how. Maybe try a bluetooth or USB mouse?
If you can do that, you can use adb to pull all the files off of your old device.
