About accessing files on your computer from your device

Imagine arriving at a meeting, only to discover that a document you need is on your computer. With remote file access, you can use the File Manager app on your BlackBerry device to view, download, and delete music, pictures, videos, and documents that are on the computer that BlackBerry Link is installed on. For information about how to use the File Manager, tap the Help app on the home screen of your device.

By default, devices running BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.1 or later that you set up with BlackBerry Link can access the files in your music, pictures, videos, and documents libraries on your computer if they are associated with the same BlackBerry ID that you are signed in to BlackBerry Link with. You can grant remote file access to specific folders on your computer and you can turn off remote access for specific devices.
