Exchange files between PC and Bluestacks....

As you know,Bluestacks lets you run Android apps in your PCs........................

Sending files through Bluestacks....

What you need to do is just drag the files that you wanted to send into Bluestacks....
Dats it....:)


Exchange files between PC and Bluestacks....


I guess this is the most common problem any user that uses Bluestacks in your PC/Laptop will be facing with..............

Actually, I have been searching for a solution to this problem as to save some files that have been sent through Whatsapp or some App like it....where I got a solution and now I am sharing you with.....

Firstly,Bluestacks creates a virtual SD Card in your PC during its installation and uses it for memory requirements...
You can share files in your PC from Bluestacks by dropping your files into a folder....

C:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\UserData\SharedFolder
                                         (in case,if you installed Bluestacks in your C:/ drive)

For Windows 7 Users:
If you don't find the folder "ProgramData"...
Go to Organize on the top left corner of your Explorer window

Click on "Folder and Search Options"
Go to VIEW tab
Search for "Show hidden files,folders and drives" option and select it
Dats it...Now,u'll b able to find the folder "ProgramData"

For Windows 8 Users:
Go to VIEW option on the top 
Then mark/select the option "Show Hidden Files"...
Dats it....Now,u'll b able to find the folder "ProgramData"

If you want to access the files in Bluestacks, install a FileManager App like Astro File Manager in your Bluestacks and then in that,you can find various files that are present in your virtual SD Card of Bluestacks.....

Now,in order to get access of those files that are being received/sent from various Apps,you need to copy the files in that specific folder(accesed through file manager app) and paste them in the folder:

/mnt/sdcard/bstfolder/BstSharedFolder/      (in Bluestacks)

This is the same folder that was specified before....(in PC)
C:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\UserData\SharedFolder

Hope this helps you alot....:)

Dats it for now....bbye :) :)

  3. Try to move rather than copying it to the Shared Folder....
    I guess the memory of SD Card is not sufficient to allocate 5Gb(2.7+2.7)
    Lemme know if you succeed.. :)
