Where sent information is saved

When you send information using Bluetooth, the location where it's saved depends on the type of information and the receiving device.

If you send a calendar event or contact, it is normally added directly to the corresponding application on the receiving device.

If you send another file type to a Windows computer, it is normally saved in the Bluetooth Exchange folder within your personal document folders.

  • On Windows XP, the path may be: C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\My Documents\Bluetooth Exchange
  • On Windows Vista, the path may be: C:\Users\[your username]\Documents
  • On Windows 7, the path may be: C:\Users\[your username]\Documents\Bluetooth Exchange Folder

If you send a file to another device, the saved location may depend on the file type. For example, if you send an image file to another mobile phone, it may be saved in a folder named ​“‍Images”.
