How to Sync Media Files between HTC and PC

By Avery Pacheco, 12/09/2014, updated on 21/01/2022

It is quite convenient to have the same songs and pictures on both you HTC phone and computer. In the past, when people want to transfer their data from an Android device to a PC or from a PC to a phone, usually they use MTP (media transfer protocol). Of course, that is a way to do this. You can go to to the disk where the phone is on your computer and find corresponding folders. But, have you wander if there are any easier ones? Well, you are going to learn some of them in this article.

Why Do We Need File Managing Program to Transfer Media? Well, take songs for example. Different files downloaded by different apps are not stored in the same folder. If you are doing this manually, it could take a while. And it's not just songs you are going to copy. The photos taken by camera and filtered by apps are also in the same situation. So, using a tool means great efficient improvment.

In the later part, HTC Sync Manager, Android Data Recovery, Android Manager and Mobile Transfer will be introduced. They are file explorers in a way and can be used to sync media files between HTC handset and PC.

Note: The things that you have saved from your phone to a computer can also act as a backup, which can be used to recover lost files from HTC in the future.
