Cant find the finalized forms in instances folder of my Asus tablet. This means I cant use Briefacase to save forms to my laptop

I am a using ODK collect for the first time and have tested the xls forms
on my ASUS tablet. The questionnaires is running fine but when I try to
pull the forms from the tablet I can not see the completed forms in the
instances folder of the ODK(tablet) which would allow me to use Briefcase.
I must use briefcase as connectivity is really bad here. Further more, the
versions of ODK listed for download all require that I 'send the finalized
form' an option which I think suggest that I am uploading the form to a
server. Does anyone know how I can obtain a version of ODK that will allow
me to work totally offline or help me find where the saved questionnaires
are ending up in my tablet?

regards,
Japhet

Hi Japhet,

Often you need to restart the tablet before connecting it to a PC to be
able to see the most current forms.
