    These are my relevant screens. As can be seen, the flash drive is recognized in Google files. The second screenshot shows how after I select and then choose either "move to" or "copy to" only internal storage is an option.

    BTW, I have tried several flash drive with the same result

    If you press on the 3 horizontal lines on the top left of your screenshot, does it not give you access to the USB storage/internal storage and you can copy files from there..? I'm sure that's how I did it...

    Unfortunately not. When I press the 3 dots I can choose to move or copy a file but the flash drive is not included as a destination option - only internal storage

    Did you try a 3rd party file manager yet?

    No luck. I will certainly post it if I figure it out though I suspect it is no longer available

    Ok -- I would definitely suggest Total Commander, since it's free, ad-free, and pretty powerful.

    I just downloaded Total Commander and it allowed me to move the a file from internal storage to the flash drive. So success!! Thanks B. Diddy. I appreciate everyone's help

    Pleased you got it working but Files should've done the job in the first place...

    Agreed. I never had an issue with my Pixel 5. There may be a way to do it on 7 Pro just through files but I have yet to find it.
