Symbian FileExplorer gives you full access to your Symbian phone file system from your PC over Bluetooth (OBEX File Transfer). It is a Symbian application which allows user to browse, download, upload and delete files and folders, even system files, of mobile phone with PC using Windows.
CAUTION: Since there is full access to all system files and folders it also will be possible to destroy system files and folders.
To be able to use this application you need the software provided with the Bluetooth hardware (Bluetooth USB dongle or integrated Bluetooth). Bluetooth software that is installed by Windows Service Pack 2 is not compatible with system. If you have problems installing your Bluetooth device vendor’s software see their website for help on installing correct Bluetooth software.
See the following picture for reference user interface of applicable environment.
See following link to have guidance in updating your software to correct one:
Move install package, the sis-file, to mobile phone and install it normally, either to device memory or to MMC card. After successful completion of installation an icon appears to main Menu’s application list or to selected location.
2. Using the application
Start application by clicking the icon in your Series 80 phone. After starting the application it is ready to be used (you may be prompted to turn Bluetooth on).
Just connect to OBEX File Transfer by double clicking Bluetooth Places icon in Windows desktop or select it by right-clicking Bluetooth icon in system tray. If devices are not paired you will need to do that before you can use the application. (Tip: After completing pairing set your PC as authorized from mobile phones Bluetooth settings). When first connection is successful you should see drives of your mobile phone listed.
The following picture is an example of how you see the file structure of your phone from PC.
C: drive is the normal mobile phones device memory. D: drive is usually MMC. Z: drive is ROM. This may be different if the configuration is being changed.
You are now ready to use the application with its full capabilities for moving files and folders between your PC and mobile phone.
CAUTION: when uploading file to mobile phone with ?Send to? from Windows Explorer the file is saved to C:. Uploaded file replaces previously saved file with the same name without prompting.
CAUTION: It is possible to delete system and other important files from mobile phone. These include files in /system folder. Deleting these files may cause your phone to lock up or even become unusable and require a visit to repair shop. It is also suggested that a drive is not tried to be deleted as what stated above might occur.
