I'm able to establish a connection between my Samsung S10+ phone and my PC which runs on Windows 10 Professional but im not able to send any files from the phone to my PC and vice versa . I can send and receive typed text but whenever i try sending a file or an image, the following pop up message is displayed on my PC: "You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the Samsung Flow Folder (error code: 0x80070005)."

 

I do not have any antivirus installed on my PC and all permissions and exceptions are granted by the firewall for the Samsung flow app. I dont understand this! Please help

@bati254: I recommend using Smart Switch for PC to transfer files and backup your existing data. Simply download the relevant version from the link below, open the software, connect your phone via USB cable and you should be good to go.

Does smart switch accept wireless transfer of files between phone and PC?

@bati254: It is only possible to connect via USB cable, I'm afraid.

Maybe you can try a third Samsung mobile manager program to help you transfer files from Samsung S10+ to pc and vice versa. You can use it via wifi connecting. With its help, you can easily export/import data from/to Samsung S10+ on computer. It's easy to use. After installed it on your computer, start it. Connect your Samsung S10+ via wifi. A short time scanning later, you can do the data transfer directly.
