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.

I absolutely love the advanced features that are straightforward and practical. The dual pane feature sealed the deal and I was hooked. The horizontal dual screen feature is very useful to manage/organize files. The only thing I'd change is to add a similar option for vertical dual pane where both panes are visible on the same screen (stacked) instead of swiping left/right to switch panes. Overall still the best file manager I've ever used.

PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!! I have used and loved this app for years, but in the last few months, I keep having the same problem: it tells me my free trial is over and asks me to buy the app. I bought the app years ago, I have the key downloaded, and I have tried all of the suggested fixes. Sometimes after a restart it will thank me for my purchase and work, but if I try it again 2 seconds later, I'm locked out again. I haven't gotten help via email, so I'm asking here. Please please fix this!!

I immediately put this file explorer on every new device. The stock explorers are always so limited. The file encrypting is the best feature. Other explorers only lock files at the specific app level so files usually can be accessed easily through other apps. Files are completely unreadable with Solid even when viewed on PC. FTP server for sharing and system level exploring are great too.
