    File Transfer issue - some files skipped when transferring to mobile

    My previous s6 and now s8 phone have experienced a weird possible bug when transferring files from my Windows 10 PC to my phone. I have decided to finally see if anyone has experienced this. As I'm unsure if this is a Samsung or Windows issue I have posted this on here and the samsung forum.

    Basically I have a decent amount of music on my phone. The problem I am experiencing seems to occur if I transfer music from my pc to my phone when I already have some music from that artist on the phone.

    I will try to explain what I do for this issue to occur. Basically I will type a specific artist into my music folder on my computer and then transfer everything from that artist to my phone's music folder - the phone is connected via USB. Often I have some tracks already from an artist on the phone and rather than looking for the ones that I don't add I just highlight them all and drag and drop them into my phones music folder - this is when the issue occurs. Firstly as expected, I will get a popup telling me that some of the files exist - I select skip and tell windows to remember this.

    However what happens next is some files might be added, but often some if not all will be ignored even though they are not on the phone. This issue also often seems to occur when there is a large amount of music and I have had to scroll down - by this I mean I have selected a large amount of music to move, so not all is shown in the window without scrolling. Even though it is all highlighted sometimes the tracks that seem to get ignored are the ones that are not seen.

    I hope I have explained this well enough. It is a weird thing and I'm not sure the cause. I am using the latest stable (non insider) version of windows, the fall creators update, but have experienced this before updating to the latest version.

    I was wondering if anyone else has experienced or heard of this?
