Moving content from Droid4X Virtual machine

For the users of Droid4X, here is how you can move/copy files from Droid4X to Windows or vice versa. To be honest moving files in and out of Droid4X was much easier than any other android emulators I have used.

This is made easy for us since Droid4X has a built-in feature to share a folder from windows into the android virtual machine. I have listed the steps below.

  1. Click on the settings button (the icon shown below).
    Droid4X Home screen
    Droid4X Home screen
  2. Click on the share folder button located at the bottom.
    Droid4X Settings
    Droid4X Settings
  3. Now you will be prompted to select the folder you want to share. Select the folder you want to share.
    Choose Location screen
    Choose Location screen
  4. Well now the folder is shared. The emulator itself opens the file manager with the shared folder. The location of the shared folder is “sdcard/droid4xshare”.
    Shared Folder
    Shared Folder

This folder acts as the shared folder. If you move a file into this folder it will be shared between your virtual machine and PC.
