    Exploring the file tree on blackberry

    Advertisement



    I got my first blackberry (8830) Thursday, so if this has been covered, sorry in advance.

    Is there a way to explore through the file system on my blackberry as I was able to do with my Motorola Q?

    Thanks
    Carl

    There's no native file explorer type app on the device. You can go to the media player>pictures and see any folders you have on an SD card (including documents), but you can't open them.

    Do a google search for eFile by Dynoplex. It's a free application that emulates some of the features of explorer, and will let you view the file tree.

    So that will allow you to explore the file tree on your device, what about from your PC?

    Thanks for the reply,

    there is no real file tree such as there is on a PC or general purpose computer. The Blackberry based on a Java Virtual Machine so for applications all you have is modules. They appear to be on a single level and any Data storage appear to use databases.

    Media storage is a different story and there is an explorer in the media application for managing and browsing those folders.

    Hope this helps.

    Definitely helps, thanks for explaining it. I did figure out today how to browse through the media libraries.
    Cheers,
