Droid Transfer makes it easy to browse, add, copy and delete photos on your Android devices.

Access and Browse Android videos

Please note that videos must be copied to your computer with Droid Transfer before they can be played.

Delete videos

Equally, you may have a phone which is FULL of videos. Mobile data storage is far from infinite, so you'll eventually find yourself wanting to review your videos and hoping to delete the ones that you don't need or want.

If you're unsure if you want to delete a video or not, consider saving them to your computer before deleting them from your phone. This way, you'll still have access to the videos, even though you've deleted them from your phone. As mentioned before, video is a great, rich format which we love to consume; however, on the flip side, this usually leads to videos files being rather large. As such, you can save a tonne of space on your Android by deleting some of the videos from the device.

To delete videos, select the ones you don’t want anymore and hit "Delete Selection". You'll be prompted that deleted videos cannot be recovered. To confirm and delete the selected videos, hit "Delete".
