Forum Xamarin Cross Platform with Xamarin

Why doesn't PCLStorage file appear in File Manager?

I am using PCLStorage to access the local storage on a cross-platform application. When I run my application on a physical device (LG), it reports that it successfully creates a folder in the root of the local storage for my application, but when I view this using File Manager, I cannot see anything.

I am guessing this might be some kind of permission thing, but I am puzzled why the code appears to succeed.

Anyone have any ideas what might be going on?

PS - I have tried the same code on iOS and I went as far as creating a file in the folder and successfully reading it back. Unfortunately, on iOS, looking at the file system seems to be more complicated (involving iTunes) and I haven't got my head around this yet.
