Is it Possible to Transfer Files from PC to Steam Deck

I don't have a USB A to USB C adapter or a pen drive. What I need to do is transfer some large files from the PC to Steam Deck. Is it possible? How to do it exactly?

Although the Steam Deck is a mobile device, it cannot be simply connected via USB to a PC. Since Steam Decks are Linux-based, attempting to use a USB cable to connect a Linux computer to a Windows one or even two Windows PCs is impossible. 

However, the Steam Deck can read USB flash drives or micro SD cards if they are correctly formatted. Thus, you can remove the SD card from the Steam Deck, connect it to your PC, and transfer data. To successfully transfer files from a PC to Steam Deck, you need to use reliable file transfer software. 

EaseUS Todo PCTrans Professional is a versatile software that can move files between two drives or PCs. It provides reliable technical support to assist users throughout the game/file transfer process. Its one-click data migration will save effort and time. Below is a complete tutorial on how to transfer files from PC to Steam Deck:
