    My file transfer has completely stopped working on my OnePlus 5T. About a year ago it would kind of flicker on and off and I could still transfer some stuff - but now it's completely stopped.

    I've tried a lot of the driver reinstall and other tricks to no avail.

    The phone is completely unrecognized by both Windows and Mac devices, when it plug it in all it does is charge it regardless if it's set to file transfer or not.

    I recently ordered a OnePlus 9 Pro and I'm wondering how I'm going to transfer and back up the 70GB 2000+ pictures of my family, friends, ect. off of my 5T.

    So there is always OnePlus Switch/Clone Phone, as it's now called, which would transfer all your data from one phone to the other

    Yeah, I plug it into a Mac and a Windows 10 laptop using the included USB cable and it's not recognized at all and I've tried all the troubleshooting issues.

    This definitely works. Seamless going from OnePlus to OnePlus!

    Do you think it could be usb cable issue?

    I've tried it with 3 different cables so it shouldn't be a cable issue I don't think
