When I copy games over to the USB drive when the drive is connected directly to my PC via USB, the game backups work, and the files are all visible within Windows Explorer.
When I copy games over to the USB drive via an FTP transfer, the game backups work but hooking up the USB drive back to my PC, none of the games sent to the USB drive via FTP transfer are visible within Windows, only the games copied over *WITHIN* Windows itself (and not via FTP) show up as visible files in explorer.
The game data and files are indeed still on the drive as the backups still load and play fine and the space windows shows free on the drive reflects the true number of games on there. I can also see all the directories on the drive when browsing the USB drive over an FTP connection in Filezilla. FTP'd files just don't seem to be showing up for me on my drive when browsing the contents within Windows. Was wondering if anyone else had an issue like this.
Hidden how? Not sure what you are getting at, but I am not copying files from the PS3 to PC, its something different altogether. I know its kind of a goofy issue and hard to express properly in words, Ill try again.
