I have HTC One and just purchased the Samsung S8. I am not able to transfer data using Smart Switch:
- USB does not detect my old phone
- Wifi connects and drops
I am not able to connect my HTC One to my PC. HTC Sync Manager does not detect my phone.
I've enabled developer usb debug to no avail.
Is there any way to use Wfi, Dropbox or something else to get my data from HTC One to new S* or some interim drive?
Thanks, in advance.
