My mom has a Amazon Fire HD 10. She has PDF’s files she wants to move from the local storage of the tablet to her computer.
The tablet only shows Email or computer USB as transferring options. We don’t trust the in tablet emailing because it wants access to all contacts, ect. Plus, she would have to email each file one at a time…. yuck. Her computer is a Windows 10 and I don’t trust the tablet enough to have her USB connect.
The website she got the recipe PDFs from is no longer active either. I don’t know how to move the PDFs from the local tablet storage to the cloud storage.
Any advise would be helpful.
Which vendor’s cloud are you accessing? (Google/Microsoft/Apple iCloud)
Using a USB cable to connect the tablet to your PC, do the following to transfer media to your PC.
Make sure your screen is unlocked.
Plug your tablet into your PC
Swipe down from the top to view your alerts. Click on USB Charging This Device. Tap for Other USB Options.
Select Transfer Files.
On your PC, open the Fire drive and click/drag the folders or files you want to transfer.
John we don’t want to connect the tablet to her computer. Is there a way to move the files from the tablet another way? Again it is Amazon Fire HD 10.
If you wish to use your SD card instead of the recommended USB & using a computer methods, you will first need to identify how you configured your SD card when first inserted.
If it was not configured for portable storage then simply moving the SD card over to the other tablet should bring your data & apps to the second tablet as it was configured for expanding the internal storage.
Take a look at this video here on how to configure an SD card and let me know how yours is configured if you see the option to format as portable at the bottom of the SD card icon on the storage menu in settings then you will have to format the SD card before it can be used to move data between tablets.
