Have added 64GB microSD; it is formatted to FAT32. Do not see that in About Product. How do I copy files to microSD?

Thank you, I would rather wait for an more robust access method instead.

What you mean by "robust". Directory is a directory and is known, so you can access it from any file manager you want.

@ortylp: I meant to wait for an app/ feature update that will permit me access to microSD without having to type command/s.

The SD card is mounted under /run/user/100000/media/sdcard

See https://together.jolla.com/question/1888/add-optional-access-to-external-sd-card-from-android-app/ for more details

you could also [code] ln -s /run/user/100000/media/sdcard /mnt/sdcard [/code]

don't have my device handy right now but you may have to become root to be able to run that command if /mnt does not exist yet create it first or use any other location of your convienience

That's a very convoluted and unintuitive way to access my media. Seriously, I am confused with this obscure way sailfish OS deals with the removable media storage. Lost few hundred unreplaceable photos because of that. Worst thing is to see that the bl00dy answer has been accepted and the threat closed. Very short shighted indeed...
