I recently bought a type c flash drive to use as an external drive to offload my files to. My phone recognises the flash drive but there's no option to move the files to the flash drive. Please help

@MTHAKATHI, What device are you using ? Format it to exFAT file system. If it is NTFS then it will be read only. You can format it from PC or from the phone.

If your flash drive is showing up as storage in the My Files app. Then you will be able to transfer files to and from it.
