Offline files access or Folder export

Offline files access or Folder export

I want to export all of my music folders to a local folder my Samsung Galaxy S21 Android phone, so I can make playlists (in this case, in VLC Media Player) and listen to music without having to constantly select the next song.  This should be simple; it used to be possible. 

 

The instructions in the Dropbox help center describe a procedure for exporting a folder, but they are incorrect.  There's no physical way to export a whole folder. The button does not exist.  With the current version of Dropbox, on this phone, there's no way to export entire folders from Dropbox.  The only way to export the  .mp3 files to a local folder is one by one, which is impractical.   

 

The fact that there's no practical way (using the extremely buggy, poorly documented and unstable Windows app Samsung DeX) to transfer large numbers of data files directly to a local folder on the phone is the icing on the cake.
