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.


Organize remote files
Solid Explorer supports major network protocols and cloud providers to let you organize multiple remote file locations in one place. You can easily transfer files between cloud locations/servers just by dragging them from one panel to another.

The software itself works really well but it has repeatedly forgotten that I paid for it. This is at least the third time that the app has updated and then decided I was using a free trial instead of the full version. Their workarounds never work and I always end up having to reinstall the app and recreate my settings. This happens often enough that I'm thinking of switching to another app.

Once I figured out how to move files from one storage source to another, (swipe the whole screen left or right), it's perfect! You can get to files that are otherwise hidden. The Dropbox and SMB support are flawless. It also has some handy built-in file viewers and a text editor. I don't know how people get by without it.

Excellent app for managing files, space, etc. It is intuitive, straight forward, and it does exactly what I need it to do. Full disclosure, I don't recall what the ads are like because I usually pay to get rid of the ads in apps I use everyday. It is reasonably priced (says the man who can afford it) your what @#2@it delivers.
