I'm trying to send a file from Android to Macbook via bluetooth. I pair them successfully and when I'm sending a file from Android, it just ends up saying "file not sent". In the Macbook does happen nothing at that time, no pop up window or something.

That's it.

In System Preferences > Sharing > Bluetooth Sharing, ensure that Folder for accepted items is set to something. If it isn't set, incoming file transfers are rejected automatically.

    Any other things I should check? Bluetooth and Bluetooth sharing are on, 'when receiving' is 'ask', accepted items folder is set and Android phone paired but still file is still rejected. – cpcallen Jun 5 '16 at 23:46
  • Also Bluetooth sharing can get turned off somehow. I checked mine and it was off even though it was on yesterday. – jcollum Aug 8 '17 at 4:59
