    Lately, I have been getting a LOT or critical errors when copying files from the Nexus 7-2013.

    Firstly, the PC has a hard time keeping the USB connection to the device going. It will disconnect itself, then reconnect, disconnect, and so on. IF I can get a stable connection, I can copy some files to the device, but if I try to create a new folder via the PC, it will crash, and when I reconnect, I will see 2 "New Folder."

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, but there isn't a better driver than the one that installed when the device was first connected, and so the problem still exists. I also plug the USB cable into a primary USB port of the PC, and not through a hub, like I will use for a flash drive.

    I'm starting to thing the USB connector on the tablet is going bad...

    It's the Windows 10 "home" version.

    Windows 10 acts wonky with some devices. For example, my old HTC Inspire would not keep a stable connection in fastboot mode until I modified a registry key. Now, my Nexus 6 has no issue with Windows 10. Are you positive you're using the latest driver from Google's developer pages?

    I think it was the USB cable. Some are only good for charging, but you need a good one for data transfers, and you need to plug it in carefully every time. IMO, the micro end goes bad.
