    I've looked in my designated folders. ie downloads (sd card) and documents/downloads (device). Incidentally my device is an Alcatel Fierce XLT. Have tried different file types, mp4, music files. Share app says successful, tap on notification bar and goes to the file but no path to go there in file manager to move it around. I have same prob with Spotify downloads. They're on the device but can only listen on Spotify cuz don't show up in any (accessible) folder. I have no pirated software or files.

    Edit: OS is W10M. Thanks for the link.

    Link is working okay, but I'll paste the main block:

    The first test was sending two different files at the same time. I sent a jpeg file and a pdf file. Both were received. On checking photos app, the jpeg file showed up. On checking file explorer, the pdf file was stored in downloads folder while the picture got stored in saved pictures folder which is in pictures folder.

    Next was an epub file which is unrecognised by my phone. So this was about sending files that are not recognised. It also got stored in downloads folder

    Third was sending a song and then a video. Both have gone missing and I can't see them in their respective apps or in storage. I'll try again for these files.

    Points to note. There is no send via bluetooth option on my surface 3 with windows 10. You have to open file sharing program for bluetooth, the old clunky one
    Also, you can receive files even if your mobile screen is locked as the notifications come through.

    Summary:
    Documents and unknown file types go to downloads folder
    Pictures go to saved pictures folder

    Update:

    I sent a few mp3 files via bluetooth and they were all received in music folder. Groove picked them also and I'm playing them

    So mp3 files go to music folder.
