How to Transfer Pictures and Videos from Device to SD Card in HTC

htc copy move files from device and sd card

HTC offers limited space on device, but you have an option of SD card so you can save all pictures and videos directly on the SD card. You can also store all programs files and install program on the SD card instead of htc storage. Sh** always happens. Recently I was taking some pictures and without knowing I stored them in the device instead of SD card. Now the HTC started giving me messages about low memory. I did not wanted to delete the from from HTC but I wanted to save them instead. If you open the image stored in HTC and click it, it will offer you few options.

  • set as contact icon
  • save screen image
  • delete
  • set as footprints
  • mail
  • message
  • facebook

And that’s it. You can not move the image or video from the HTC storage to SD Card. File explorer is there but you can not cut/paste files. Atleast I was unsuccessful in that. When you connect the HTC with PC, it will only open up SD Card storage and not the HTC my device storage. So,…What is an easy way to move stuff from HTC storage to SD card?

Total Commander for HTC

Total Commander is a file manager, a program like Windows Explorer to copy, move or delete files.

One solution is Total Commander (TC). With Total Commander you can have two window mode which allows you to see any folder(s) and open up another folder to transfer (copy/move) a file (picture, video, folder, etc.) from one location (Device/SD Card) to the other and so on.
