About this app

Solid Explorer is a file management app inspired by the old school file commander applications. It will help you:
🗄️ Easily manage files in dual pane layout
🔐 Protect files with strong encryption
🖥️ Manage files on your cloud storage or NAS
☁️ Backup apps and files to any desired destination

Explore your device
Solid Explorer lets you navigate to files stored on your device and automatically organizes them into collections. You can view, delete, move, rename or share any files. It also allows you to quickly find the files you need through indexed search with filters.

Keep your files safe
Solid Explorer can protect selected files with strong AES encryption and put them in a secure folder, which contents are unreadable for other apps. The file manager will ask for password or fingerprint confirmation when you browse the folder. Even if you uninstall Solid Explorer, the files stay on your device and are still protected.

Analyze Storage
Although this file manager doesn’t feature a dedicated storage analyzer, you can find out which files take up most of space by going to folder properties of internal storage or SD card. You will find the information about the percentage of space each folder takes and the list of biggest files. You can also use search with a file size filter.

App is good but several things are bothering me. The biggest issue for me is when you're moving files the left menu doesn't appear to be accessible so you can't get to your bookmarks, leaving you to navigate through folders to get to where you want. Thumbnails never seem to load properly and is slow.

The developer is updating the app, that's very appropriate. You can buy this app, it totally worth your money, it will be the end of searching a great File Explorer. // This app has a lot of things, and works great. I like that includes the option for .noname files, hide folders from other apps, other apps will not see it. You can also copy the path of the folders, create ftp connections, easily see which files are using a lot of space, the list of options is huge.

I'm trying to find a replacement for ES File Manager, such a good all-in-one file manager. This was one of the ones I've tried. It's okay, I've even paid for the full version hoping this would solve all my issues. One thing I noticed, it doesn't have an FTP browser. Another thing, I've been having issues with it extracting .7zip files. Also, when playing videos in VLC, ES File Manager used to continue where I left off, in Solid Explorer it always default to start the video from the beginning. I've resorted to launching my videos directly from VLC instead :( Until these minor inconveniences are resolve, it won't be able to live up to ES File Explorer.
