  • Copy and delete complete directory structures
  • Open all media files (supported by your BlackBerry®)

Please Note:

Some files on BlackBerry® devices have some sort of DRM (Digital Rights Management). As a result, these files cannot be copied or moved. FileScout will give you a warning once you try to copy a file that has ‘encrypted content’. FileScout will mark these files with a “caution” symbol. Additionally, in some cases, it will not be possible to delete this content.
