    Hey Joao,

    I just started having this problem today. When sending 2 pictures from my Gallery app on Android, to my Windows 10 PC (Chrome extension), I get the following error in Chrome for each file:

    {"errorMessage":"Local file /storage/emulated/0/storage/BA11-1209/DCIM/Camera/20200526_212626.jpg doesn\u0027t exist","success":false,"userAuthError":false}

    I tried re-installing the Chrome extension, and ran the tests, but nothing seems to stand out as the problem. Any ideas?

    Edit: I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the recent addition of local network devices feature, and sharing files between them?

    Woops, spoke to soon... this is still an issue and is still happening.

    Joao: When my phone is on the same WiFi network as the PC I'm sending files to, this error happens. When, instead, I'm either on a different WiFi network, or on cell data, the error doesn't happen. This leads me to believe it has to do with the recent feature that you added that had to do with local network connectivity.

    Also, I tried disabling the PC's firewall (Windows 10), but the problem still occurred.

    Can you please investigate this? This really puts a damper on using Android's share functionality to send files to a machine on the same network as the device.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hhmm, interesting, maybe related to the file being on an SD card. Can you confirm that's the case?

    Yep, confirmed. The camera is set to save to the microSD.

    Can you please try sending a file from internal storage just to see if it works correctly?

    I just tried this, Joao, and it works fine. Looks like something to do with the file being on microSD before sending.
