Guys, what is the best/easiest way to transfer files between android and windows?
@gray Thanks! What about when you want to send one file every now and then? Can it be set up to work like this?
@paladin I'm not sure actually. If there was something I just wanted to randomly share to one of the other devices, I'd just make sure I saved it in the shared folder and it would appear.
@paladin If you're technically inclined, you might consider using Termux on Android to use scp to ssh your files to your PC. It's fast, secure, local, and scriptable.
Getting a ssh server set up on windows is definitely doable, though I haven't done it in years myself. At the very least you could use Cygwin.
Alternatively, if you just want a turnkey solution that is probably secure, there's Syncthing. https://syncthing.net
It works like a charm.
@urusan Haha... I am still working on the docker inclination you were so nice to help me with.
i've got an app called Wifi File Transfer - it sets up an FTP URL you can browse to on your computer, but it only accesses internal storage and not the microSD card.
@paladin 2 words: USB cable.
