    File explorer-Size of each file same as whole folder


    I have a problem with JPEG and Mp4 files cutted and pasted from my android device via cable to my laptop. Had no problems, when transferring files, but when finished, whole size of the folder changed. What should be the size of the whole folder (12,6GB) is now the size of every file in the folder (from the first to last). I can not open any file. Even more weird is, when checking for space on the disk, I see, this file uses around 12,6GB, but when checking size of the file, it is marked at 27,8TB. I cheked via various internet sites about the problem, and some suggested it is a bug from newer versions of windows. They reccomended to use Treelink and other solutions, but none worked. Link:

    Any thoughts?

    It seems to be another win 10 bug.
    Did you try a workaround like ziping the whole folder on the Andrid device, transferring to the laptop and then unziping?

    Problem is, I cut whole folder from Android device to my laptop (I guess I won't rush those stuff anymore). I do not have those files anymore on my android device. I am more or less stuck. Thank you for a reply!
