  • Tap the + symbol on the bottom right.
  • Choose "Computer" as your source.

Important Note: To make sure that the file transfer is not interrupted or aborted, please keep the UPDF tab open and your screen unlocked throughout the import process. Both devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
