There're many ways to do so: cloud services like dropbox or google drive, or some wireless magic like Bluetooth or NFC.

But the easiest way is to hook up your device by simple USB-cable. Remember, on some devices you may need to select file transfer mode to proceed. Then open file browser on your computer, find your device's storage and recordings folder inside. Usually it is SmartVoiceRecorder. Finally just copy appropriate recordings as usual files.

Hello, the sound files appear on my android phone (sony xperia) through your app (saving on the SD card), but nothing appears on the SD card about the sound files when it's mounted on my macbook pro... Do you know what I can do to make them appear and save them on my mac computer ?

Following Kevin - I couldn't find my files on the internal memory. However, I did discover there is an advanced settings option on the Android version where you can elect whether to "Hide from Media Players". Unselect that. You can then search your device for a *.wav file and copy it to your PC

of course we can transfer via google drive or dropbox if the file is just about max 50MB. but how about if the files is bigger than 1GB? i can't even find my recorded files on my memory card, neither i can find the files when plugged via USB.. please help..

You cannot do this because neither Windows nor ADT (Android Developer Tools) has permissions to read files in /storage/emulated/0/SmartVoiceRecorder, which is the default location for storage. Generally an Android program has permission to its own storage location and no other program has permission to read that, unless the Android program writes it to a public location like the Downloads folder.

It might work if you change the storage location to DCIM, which is a public location you can see in the Windows explorer.

If you cannot read it with Windows, then you might be able to transmit it to your PC with Bluetooth using the ESS File Manager Android app if you can get it over to any of the folders that you can see with ESS File Manager.

(I have not tried any of this yet, because I do not want to lose the one recording I have there.)

I would give up until the developer adds a dropbox option. I did.

Download the app, "Wifi File Transfer." Install and run the app. On your PC open Windows Explorer. Enter the address provided by the app into your address bar in Windows Explorer. It looks something like this, 10.0.0.4:xxxx. hit enter and you're in your cell phones file system. You can now move files from any directory on your cell to anywhere on you PC. Except maybe the keyboard, etc...

They could not have made the app any easier to use!

@HDN BLUES; RE: WIfi File Transfer App

Great App, great suggestion. Possibly one of the best solves ever for such a dumb problem (couldn't get my droid and macbook pro to play nice via their native programs). Thank you thank you.

Indeed that is the simplest solution that doesn't require installing any other apps. On my phone (running Android 4.4) I went to "My Files" then "Music" then "SmartVoiceRecorder" where all the recordings are stored. I selected the one(s) I wanted to copy to my PC and then clicked on the icon in the upper right hand corner (three horizontal lines). I selected Move, and as Walker suggested I moved the file to the DCIM folder. After that I had no problem copying the file from the DCIM folder to my HD in Windows File Explorer.

By the way, in "My Files" there is also a "Share" icon that lets you transfer the file via Dropbox, Bluetooth, Google Drive, Skype, etc.

Slightly off topic question, but is there a way to "find" a file that has vanished? I was transferring a recording from Smart Voice Recorder to my computer but it was going very slowly and I needed to go somewhere. I cancelled the transfer and the file disappeared from SVR. Naturally, it was the only recording of my daughter's voice jury. Any suggestions or is it gone for good?

For me, Android Assistant is the best app for data transfer and backup. You can move all kinds of data from the phone to computer within a few clicks.

I prefer to use Android Manager tool to transfer files from Android to PC.

When you havn't USB in hand, you can transfer data via wifi connection. Very convenient.

I connected my android to my laptop to copy some files to my phone, immediately all but a few of my files on my app were gone.Been searching everywhere to recover these files. I DID NOT DELETE ANY FILES I can't find a way to recover them. Many of these files are very sentimental and it seems they are lost forever, all because I attached my phone to my laptop and copied one (1) file. It was easy for me to see all but a few files were gone. The list had taken up the entire screen and I had to scroll down to see the rest. Where did they go and how can I get them back. I am very upset. This should not have happened. Please tell me where my files are, how can I locate them, restore them. Devastated.

I can't thank you enough. I had lost everything. So many sentimental files taken over years. I had attached my phone using the USB cord selected one file to copy and the next thing I saw was every file I'd ever recorded using the app Smart Voice Recorder on my android. I was devastated and after hours of searching for a way to recover these files and I didn't find anything helpful until I loaded the app Wifi app. I could jump for joy as every file was found and they are all safely copied into a folder on my laptop. They are still gone from the app on my phone, but I don't care. Thanks to you I have "all" my lost files. Thank you so very much.

If you are using a mac, then this is the way I have found to do it. It may also work for PC/ Windows users...

As someone has put above,

Once you have done this, download the 'Android File Transfer' app;

https://www.android.com/filetransfer/

Then, once the Android File Transfer app is appearing on your screen, look in the DCIM folder. There you will see all the Smart Voice Recorder files.

If you are having trouble with viewing your files using Android File Transfer app, check out this solution;
