environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() shows path which doesn't even exist


environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() shows path which doesn't even exist

fixed the issue. Will look into that further The path exists for your app's process.
Android, starting with 4.2, supports multiple accounts per device (originally just for tablets, now for all devices starting with 5.0). Each account gets its own distinct area for internal and external storage. The framework will return paths from methods like getExternalStorageDirectory() that are correct for the current account holder that is running your app. What these locations map to in terms of actual filesystem locations is up to Android, as part of its effort to secure access to storage.

Hope that helps According to the source, getExternalStorageDirectory is implemented to return whatever is set as "external storage" in the device environment:
code :
public static File getExternalStorageDirectory() {
    return EXTERNAL_STORAGE_DIRECTORY;
}
private static final File EXTERNAL_STORAGE_DIRECTORY
        = getDirectory("EXTERNAL_STORAGE", "/sdcard");

static File getDirectory(String variableName, String defaultPath) {
    String path = System.getenv(variableName);
    return path == null ? new File(defaultPath) : new File(path);
}

This might help you The value returned by Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory is correct and there is nothing wrong with it.
The problem here is that the Android Device Monitor doesn't directly support symlinks (symbolic links). You should manually follow/expand them in the File Explorer.
