How can I transfer more than just one file at a time over Bluetooth from my desktop PC to my mobile phone? I have paired the two devices and I can send files from my PC to my phone, but only one file at a time.
What I normally do is, when the phone is in range, I right click a file on the PC and select Send To from context menu and then click Bluetooth. I then choose the device I want to send to and click Next.
I get a prompt on the phone asking me to receive the file or not. I accept it and the file is received. But if I wanted to transfer like 150 files this way that would be very tiresome. I'm sure there must be a better way to utilize file transfer over Bluetooth.
As I recall there used to be an icon for my Bluetooth connected mobile phone in the Computer view (Win+E) in Explorer in Windows Vista. I was able to double click on it just like you would do with a mounted USB flash drive or any HDD drive. It allowed me to browse its contents and transfer files over Bluetooth to and from this device. I think this was when I had a Nokia smartphone. I just assumed it was part of the Windows system... but maybe it was part of the Nokia sync tool... or is it?
How can I replicate this? Is it possible to have an icon for a connected Bluetooth device in the Computer view that you can click and browse and drag and drop files onto when the device is in range?... I would like to have this feature back, this time with this HTC phone.
I usually don't use Bluetooth for file transfers, simply because it's so slow. But sometimes it is just right, for smaller files of course, and I'm in a hurry and don't want to go get my USB cable or don't know where it is. But clicking and tapping through each file transfer is just not gonna work for me. It's OK for 2 or maybe 3 files, but for 10 files or more I give up.
If this is a duplicate question, let me know and please point me to the question that covers this issue and I will delete this one. If you need more information please add a comment. I will respond as quickly as I can.
If I right-click a folder and choose Send To, and then Bluetooth, Windows Vista just shows an info box stating that this operation is not possible.
It says I cannot use Bluetooth File Transfer (I think is the generic name of this feature) to transfer folders. It then suggests that I open up that folder, select all the files in it and then send them to the device that way.
