    I was wondering, If I upgrade my Lumia 630 to Windows 10, will I be able to transfer movies and video files from my laptop to it? As far as I know, Microsoft has incorporated some sort of a checker that scans everything on the device and determines whether the file transfered is genuine and if it isn't, it deletes it. I really hope this is not the case here. Hope that you can help me. Thank you.

    If you upgrade to Windows 10 mobile, you should be fine transferring movies and video files. It doesn't check your files and doesn't delete them. Although I recommend you to stay on 8.1 because there are some bugs and issues on Win10mobile, I've encountered some SD card issues with copying files (large movies), but formatting SD card to NTFS seems to fix that.

    Thanks for the answer. What is the limit for the movie file, in order to get copied to the SD card? I am asking because I don't have a card reader and can't format it to NTFS.

    Can I format the SD card by connecting the phone to my PC, via USB?

    What can/will happen is that if you copy a movie or whatever to your phone and the file extension is not supported it will inform you that this format will not "work" on your phone.
    But it will not delete your file.

    Now about the SD card. Basically there are 2 format you can use FAT32 and exFAT.
    Your phone can format SD cards (no need to connect it to your PC).
    In a FAT32 formatted SD card the file size has to be smaller than 4 Gb. For a exFAT or NTFS the file can be larger then 4GB
    So if your movies are smaller then 4GB there is no problem at all whatever format the SD card is.
    If you have a SD card larger then 32GB then there is also no problem because this card will have a exFAT format. (FAT32 can only be used for cards to a max of 32GB).
    So the only problem is if you have a 32GB card or smaller and files larger than 4GB.

    Have you update your phone to W10M ?
