  • Question

  • I have created a desktop app. in C# . It connects to the Android phone through the SDK provided by Android.

    I can only connect via USB .  There is no wifi ,, no data plan.

    The SDK(command line tool) has a pull command to pull files off the phone to the desktop. I do not find any features in the pull command to append to the file created on the desktop.

    How can I achieve copying multiple files contents into one ..that is append the new file records to the old one on the desktop ? 

    The pull command just copies it to the desktop. I cannot create a buffer to it .

    Right now after copying the file i copy the first file into another files on the same desktop and then over write the first one while merging takes place during copying.

  • I think it's always going to be file-at-a-time.  The access methods are intentionally limited.

    You should be able to mount the device on Windows, then get at the files through Explorer.  Or, you could go through Bluetooth, but again I think you're going to find it is file-at-a-time.
