What do you need to do this for? –  ephilip Apr 18 '11 at 13:31
    
@ephilip: To transfer files, obviously. –  grawity Apr 18 '11 at 17:45

1 Answer 1

If both devices implement the Bluetooth File Transfer Profile you can "browse, manipulate and transfer objects (files and folders) in an object store (file system) of another system"

Hard Drive Help says

The bluetooth external hard drive has not caught on because the interface is too slow for transferring the kind of data you would want to put on a hard drive. The bluetooth hard drive interface is much slower than even USB 1.x. Toshiba introduced a 5GB bluetooth external hard drive but it was never much more than a curiosity.

This unfortunately depends on the Bluetooth stack being used... Broadcom software supports OBEX FTP, while Microsoft's native implementation doesn't. –  grawity Apr 18 '11 at 17:45
