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.

After dealing with this app for a long time I finally realized that I cannot trust it with my music collection. I keep losing precious folders during transfer to other drives. And the one thing I notice is every time I lost folders and noticed that folders have been lost it's because I've used this app to transfer them This is the only file explorer I ever used and I can no longer trust it. It was a good run while it lasted. Uninstalled

I have a folder on my SD card that Solid Explorer lists as “8 files and 2.76 MB.“ However, the actual contents of the folder are 3.48 GB. The only way to see the actual 3.48 GB is to right-click on the folder and look in properties. That is ridiculous. Why would the incorrect size show on the folder label itself? It's also absurd that all folders must be viewed as either list, view, grid, or gallery and can't be set independently. Unacceptable. Both problems need to be fixed.

This app is getting clunkier by each update. Now, you actually wait for it to load - every time. It used to just pop right up and go to the set homepages. Now it reminds me of the old Windows start up, as if it is loading up drivers. Just to let you know, my first rating for this app, about two years ago, was 5 stars. But first you removed access to Amazon Cloud, and now this. Time to uninstall and look elsewhere. The simple "File Manger" with the same "Two-Window" works much faster.
