Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you can only transfer one file at a time using Bluetooth, then you can Zip the folder using WinZIP or 7-Zip (open source/free at http://www.7-zip.org), then transfer the compressed zip file to your other device, unzip the file, and access the folder. It would probably be more efficient to Zip the folder as the compressed zip file will transfer much faster anyway. You did not mention what Bluetooth enabled devices your are transferring files between, but if you are transferring the compressed zip file from Windows to an Android device you can use ASTRO File Manager to uncompress WinZIP and 7-Zip compressed zip files. ASTRO File Manager is available for free in the Android Market at https://market.android.com/details?id=com.metago.astro&hl=en.

    Why doesn't anyone know you can compress folders and extract .zip files without downloading anything??? Just right click and mouse over "send to." Then, choose "Compressed (zipped) folder." Boom, a .zip file (ok, you might have ot wait a minute depending on the size of the folder). Send it, do whatever. To extract, right click and choose "Extract all." Hit "Extract." Wait for it to finish. Done.

    It can also be used to send stuff via email, Skype, etc.

    @SomePersonJustTryingToHelp: One reason "nobody knows" is that it's not an option on most Bluetooth devices. The three very different Bluetooth devices that I use the most are a Lenovo T500 laptop, an Asus TF300T tablet and a basic Z222 cell phone. The option doesn't exist on any of them.
