File manager for BlackBerry 10 simulator

I'm doing some work with files on the simulator and would like an easy way to view/delete files. Is there a file manager available for the simulator 10.1?

Re: File manager for BlackBerry 10 simulator

Yes, the BlackBerry Native SDK provides a graphical user interface to copy files to and from a BlackBerry device or simulator.  Use the following steps to copy a file.


  1. Perform a Run As or Debug As on your application and deploy a debug release to your BlackBerry Tablet.
  2. Click on the Window menu.
  3. Choose Show View -> Other.
  4. Expand QNX.
  5. Select Target File System Navigator and click OK.
  6. In the Target File System Navigator window expand Sandboxes and then expand the folder for your application.
  7. Select the folder that contains the file you wish to copy.
  8. Right click on the file you wish to copy and choose Copy To.  You can also drag and drop files to and from this window.
