Send files via bluetooth

Missing bluetooth icon on taskbar.

And unable to send bluetooth files using your laptop or desktop.

To open bluetooth via taskbar:

This will work provided the PC and the other device has already been paired and configure with the authentication settings to talk to each other.

Well, quick and easy way is to use the command line executable file.

Press Win Key + R, to open the run box.

On the run box, type "fsquirt" without quotes and press enter.

Or go to search box and type "fsquirt" without quotes and press enter.

After pressing enter bluetooth transfer file window will open.

Click on "Send Files" to transfer files on the computer to other bluetooth device.

If there's a bluetooth device already configured and paired with the computer, you need to select which bluetooth device you want to send the files.

Upon selecting which device to transfer the files. The browse window will open and select the files you want to send.

Once finish selecting the files, the next button will be "enabled". Click on next to proceed to send the files.

The other bluetooth device should receive a notification whether to accept or reject the incoming bluetooth connection.

If the other device confirm the incoming connection, then the sending of files will begin.

And the window below will pop up with progress bar to indicate the status of the transfer.

Once the transfer is complete a notification window will be shown that the transfer was successful.

If above procedures does not work, there could be some issues on the blutooth hardware. The bluetooth versions might cause the bluetooth transfer to fail.

Hope this will help someone else ..

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

However, if the file (ex. an ISO file) and is more than 4GB and the filesystem  of the thumbdrive or the storage is FAT system, then robocopy or any methods of copying will not work. Since FAT has a file size limitation of less than 3GB.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No ne…

Why would you need a command line tool if there’s a GUI to check?
If you have 20 or 100 computers, or even more. It’s quite a big task just checking the GUI to check the computer model and username.
