    HI guys

    I`m having trouble copying the files from an android phone to the local pc by using the following script found on:

    I`m not sure how to add the following to the main script or if it must be created separately:

    $des = 'D:\DICM'
    $phone = Get-ChildShellItem | where { $_.name -eq 'a820t' }
    Get-ChildShellItem -Path "$($phone.Path)\Internal Storage\DCIM" -Filter '(.jpg)|(.3gp)$' | foreach {
    $datestr = $_.Parent.GetDetailsOf($_,3)
    $datestr = ([datetime]$datestr).ToString('yyyy-MM-dd')

    $dir = Join-Path $des $datestr
    if( -not (Test-Path $dir) ) {
    mkdir $dir

    # 复制文件
    Copy-ShellItem -Path $_ -Destination $dir
    # 或者移动文件
    # Move-ShellItem -Path $_ -Destination $dir

    Can somebody just point me in the right direction as i havent seen anybody else able to copy files from an Android phone to the local Computer using Powershell.

    Does the Android phone appear as a drive in Windows? Or a UNC? I mean, could you do this copy using File Explorer?

    Hi Don

    No the Android Device does not appear as a drive in windows explorer, it appears as a Portable Media Device.
