    im going to reformat my cpu later but i dont have a usb hard drive to save my files... so i was wondering if i could connect my phone with my pc to save the files on my phone?

    is this possible? (motorola droid user)

    the files are only about 10 gb.

    not always.... theres always bluetooth file transfer and if you cant use that you can always use motorola phone portal to transfer files to your phone via wifi.

    well if he's reformatting and just dropping files from the Droid to his PC it's no different than an external HDD which is what would probably be normally used. same concept, just with his Droid instead.

    usb is probably safer way to go. bluetooth always has a chance of getting disconnected, it's happened to me before. no matter what method, the droid can be used the way the OP wants

    Works fine as a flash drive. I tend to use it for work files, but as mentioned, for other things you would need to carry a cable around. Other than that no issues
