    I just downloaded Astro, so I could move a few of my pics from my Onboard drive to my SD card. When I select move, and go to the SD card and select paste it gives me an error.

    I can move from one directory on my Onboard Drive to another Directory on my Onboard drive. I can also Move from one directory to another on my SD Card.

    But I can't move from my Onboard Drive to SD Card, or vice versa.

    Anybody else having this problem? Is there another file manager I can get that'll do this?

    Works for me. Your on-board memory is up one directory from the home directory in a folder called "emmc." It took a bit of sleuthing to figure that out.

    Yea, I know where it is, I can't move from there to my SD Card or Vice Versa. Hmmmmmm.

    It says "Move Failed"


    Ahhhhh! Copy works! Just not the "Move" Function.

    I got the same error a few days ago when I tried. But copying works. So, I just copied the files and then went back and deleted them from the original location.

    My bad. I didn't actually try a move within Astro. I guess it doesn't work.

    I just tried this to merge the folders together before seeing this posting and it said Move Failed and deleted the files from the original location and didn't move them to the correct destination. Is there any way to get them back?

    If you mean like a "recycle bin" , dont think so

    you could try google , recover deleted files on android/linux

    or look on astro website for forum

    I was able to use the free utility called Glary Undelete to undelete the photos while the device was attached to my Windows 7 PC. I got back most of them, but had a couple that were damaged (3-4 out of the 27 photos I lost). That's an annoying bug though.

    I know I'm late to the party on this one, but Astro just recently added 'cloud storage' on their latest update. It is so crippled now! The lag is incredible, so even though I only used it to browse wireless files on the home computer, I'm going to 'learn' how to use it to replace Astro.
    Sometimes, changes just aren't improvements.
