Alternatives:

If you are facing problems with Mi PC Suite and it is not usable, there you may continue to manage the phone for tasks such as file transfer using the computer Explorer. For this, you would need to connect the phone to the computer using a USB cable. Select appropriate USB settings such as MTP, PTP etc. MTP stands for “Media Transfer Protocol.” When Android uses this protocol, it appears to the computer as a “media device.” MTP operates at the file level and the Android device doesn’t expose its entire storage device to Windows like earlier USB connection type "USB Mass Storage".


Or if you need PC Suite to manage your Android phone, there are several free desktop Android phone managers / PC Suite that you can use to easily manage your Android phone from your desktop computer. Using these you can backup your phone, manage SMS, manage contacts, transfer multimedia etc.
