HTC U11 – How to Move Files to PC
Is your phone storage full? Rather than deleting all your files to make room, you can store important information on your PC. There are a few ways to do this on your HTC U11, but using the USB cable is the easiest. Take a look at these steps and pick one that works best for you.
Transfer Files via USB
Use your USB cable to pick and choose specific files to transfer to your PC.
Step One – Plug in Your USB
First, connect your USB cable into your phone and plug the other end into an open port on your PC. Your computer will recognize it like any other storage drive.
Also, make sure your phone screen is unlocked. You will receive a pop-up message asking if you want to use the USB to transfer files. Tap “Yes.”
If for some reason the message doesn’t pop up on your phone screen, check your Notifications. Tap on the “Use USB for” notification, and select “Transfer files.”
Step Two – Accessing Phone Files on Your PC
The next thing you will see is File Manager pop up on your PC screen. Select “Show files” to access the files on your phone.
Step Three – Copy or Move Files
Finally, you are ready to copy or move files from your HTC U11 to your PC. Select the files that you want to move or copy.
Next, copy the files and select a new location on your PC and paste the files. You may also drag and drop files to copy them.
Transfer Files via HTC Sync Manager
If you only want to transfer media files such as photos, videos, or music to your PC, the HTC Sync Manager may be another option.
Step One – Download Free HTC Sync Manager App
If you don’t already have this app, you can download it to your PC for free. Follow the installer instructions to make sure it is installed correctly.
Step Two – Connect Your Phone
Next, connect your phone via USB to your PC. The program opens automatically once it is successfully installed on your PC.
Step Three – Import Files to Your Library
Before you can use the sync feature, you need to import your media files to the HTC Sync Manager on your PC.
You can drag and drop individual files, or use the media organizer settings to have all your media imported automatically.
Transfer Files via WiFi
You may also transfer files using your WiFi network. However, this is not a feature native to the HTC U11. To move files using your network, you have to download a 3rd party app.
If you would like to try this method, or don’t want to bother with cables, check your favorite app store. Some apps are free while others will cost a small amount.
If you don’t mind using a cable, the USB transfer method is the easiest way to move files. However, if you prefer an automated organizer for your media files, the HTC Sync Manager may be a better option for you.
Finally, if you prefer to transfer files wirelessly, check out the available 3rd party apps. If you have a fast WiFi connection, this may be a great way to sync the files on your phone and your PC.
