Re: [Help & FAQ] File Transfer

im a bonus user but CAN NOT transfer folders. Im trying to drag & drop folder from PC to device but it fails & a pop up msg says folder transfer is only for bonus and premium users. I know this which is why I shared on facebook to become bonus user. Ive signed out & back in my devices & PC & my user status says "bonus" so what the problem here?

OK, Now I can move the folder via PC to my other devices however on the folder an icon says: "Folder not supported by remote transfer yet".Its been this way for 24hrs. WTF!! I want an answer please. I shared with all my FB friends to be able to use this feature. Perhaps I will have to let them know not to waste their time with this app.

Re: [Help & FAQ] File Transfer

Just to clarify. What I mean by the below post is the app on my PC shows allows me to drop the folder in to another device bit then I get the error msg so the dragged folder its not actually appearing on my other devices. "OK, Now I can move the folder via PC to my other devices however on the folder an icon says: "Folder not supported by remote transfer yet".Its been this way for 24hrs. WTF!! I want an answer please.

I dont understand your reply? Can you be clearer please? Ive dragged folders of audio from PC to other device using PC app. Where are they on the device? I dont see the folders. The msg Im getting from the PC app is "Folder not supported by remote transfer yet." I wish i could post a screen shot.

Re: [Help & FAQ] File Transfer

When I first downloaded the app (and bought the premium service) I was able to send pics from my phone to my computer using a local connection. Now, it ALWAYS fails and I have to use a remote connection. Is there a fix to this?

Re: [Help & FAQ] File Transfer

Has anyone gotten an answer to this? I have been trying for weeks now to do a local transfer but it keeps forcing me to do a remote connection. Both the phone and the computer are on the same network.

@jodi @kevin taylor

If you're a bonus user, you can send folder in local connection mode. Can you make sure that the connection mode is local? If you've confirmed but still can't send folder, pls attach a screenshot of it. Thanks!

And you can send folder via AirDroid Web on Chrome. More details: [Help & FAQ] AirDroid Web - Files
