  1. I’m unable to transfer files from my Andriod phone to desktop. I have installed Shareit v.4.0 beta on desktop and the latest v3.6.68 on my andriod phone. I can transfer files from PCto phone, but not vice versa.
    Also, when I open Shareit on PC it immediately waits for a connection.
    I need to backup my files from phone to PC. Please help.

    PS: I don’t have bluetooth or wifi connection for my pc.

  2. How to transfer multiple photos from mobile to laptop. Last time i tried to transfer around 25 photos but only 4 photos were sent, i did tried a couple of times but i was not able to do. Is there any solution ??

  3. ShareIt aps or software is the really good work for transferring any files from mobile to mobile and mobile to PC. You can quickly transfer any files, software, application, audio, video etc. So its a amazing program for any Android version mobile and PC.

  4. I can send files but can not recieve when using computer to iphone. Everytime I try to send a file from my PC to my phone, it says “network error”. How can I fix this?

  5. I have a doubt mam , same network is not available working on Windows 8.1 in LAN connection and my mobile is android having WiFi in different network . It is not accessible and asking version 4.0 but it is not available in ushareit . Can you suggest us the procedure.

    • I think it is asking for android version 4.0 or higher.
      Make sure that you have latest version in PC and in mobile.
      You don’t have to connect to any WiFi network. You don’t have to even turn on your WiFi in mobile. Your PC or laptop must have WiFi adapter. You can not use LAN.
      When you use app simultaneously in two devices, it will automatically turn on WIFi and hotspot. After file transfer it will automatically turn off hotspot.
