    If the Moto Z Droid is like other newer Moto phones you can't see that folder and can'y use custom sound files as Alarm tones; you have to use the built in alarm tones. You can use custom tones for phone notifications, new mail, new text, calendar, etc. but not alarm sounds. Maybe the Z is different though?

    I may have been mistaken, not 100% sure. Try this: look for a folder named Alarms in the main Internal storage directory. You probably can't see the default files. I just copied a custom sound file into that folder on my Turbo 2 and I can now see that file as an option in my Alarm > Timer Ringtone settings. That may work for you also?

    I tried copying the files to the Alarm folder but no luck. I had it setup the same way I had on my Droid Turbo. Not working.

    I use root explorer to copy them there. Make sure you reboot after doing it.

    Have you rebooted? If it's mounted you won't see it until a fresh happens.
