    You can’t at the moment. Take a look at App Store reviews.

    If you have a Mac and connect the iPad it will show up as an external drive in the finder.  From there you can copy the entire C1 Catalog (with embedded RAWs) directly to your hard drive.   I've done this several times already with no hassle.

    Hey Paul, did you end up deciding the iPad process could work for you?

    I tested an iPad Pro M1 256GB for file transfer speeds...

    Export 400 A7rV photos. Total files: 35.43GB

     

    OWC EnvoyProFX2TB formatted APFS - 2800MB/s spec

    02:07 - Time from pressing “export” button in C1 to the location option menu popping up

    00:41  - Transfer time to External Drive

    02:49 - Total Time

     

    Samsung T5 - 540MB/s spec

    02:02 - Time from pressing “export” button in C1 to the location option menu popping up

    02:19  - Transfer time to External Drive

    04:21 - Total Time

     

    Pretty happy to see the faster the drive the faster the transfer.

    Eli Turner how did you enable it to sho up like a hard drive?

    Curtis Gallon plugging the iPad into my MBP via a USB-C to USB-C cable.  It will ask on the iPad if you want to "Trust" this computer, enter your unlock code and then it will show up in the Mac finder.
