This app was mentioned in
with an average of
Total Commander. It's a dual-pane file manager. Those who've used it on Windows (first as "Windows Commander" and later "Total Commander") since 1993 will feel at home.
It has optional free plugins for Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, FTP, SFTP, FTPS, WebDAV, SMB (Windows shared folders), direct wifi transfer, and more.
It can take advantage of root too, if your phone is rooted, so you can browse and edit system files, if you want to.
Total commander is a free file manager, and it is AMAZING. It has many useful plugins, supports root, and just generally very solid app. I used it since the day one on Android
Try opening it from a different program. PBW files don't open for me from Chrome, but a file manager like Total Commander works.
I like Total Commander, but I'm accustomed to using twin pane file managers on computers. There is a chance others might find it a little awkward.
This is a side note to the topic at hand, but I really don't recommend using ES File Explorer; they've recently added a bunch of bloatware and pop-up ads.
Instead, try Total Commander, which allows for much the same thing without the BS.
Ever since ridding myself of ES I moved on to Total Commander it's free, there are no ads, and no BS. You'll have to sideload it using the Google Play Store on your phone to install it on your ATV but it's android TV compatible :) if you want more features there are first and third party plug ins you could use. I've been using this file manager for awhile and haven't looked back :)
I use Total Commander.
It is not pretty but is does everything one would need for free.
Quick actions can be a little annoying creating your own.
I keep trying others and keep coming back to this as "it just werks".
When moving/copying files you can continue the operation in the background by just doing something else. It will set the file operation in a notification.
For a file managment, consider Total Commander, I've been using it for years. It's a dual window style manager with many features. There are also plugins for Google Drive, FTP, SMB, OneDrive...etc. Colours are customizable (must for AMOLED screens). And there's a Windows version.
This is automatically detected, and sometimes can be shown mistakenly. See Total Commander.
>Important note: This app does NOT contain any ads. However, it contains a link "Add plugins (download)" in the home folder. This is treated as an ad by the Play Store because it links to our other apps (plugins).
This app may have something similar. Or just the mechanisms it uses to detect or block the ads trigger the warning. Unless it really does show you ads. Then I must agree it is asshole design.
There was also this browser, Brave, that claimed it would show their own ads on websites instead of the ones put there by the owners of the websites, and share the money they get from you seeing the ads with you. I’m not sure how much did it make or if it ever worked at all though, I’ve only read about it.
Sparsely) Perhaps all the popular file managers want to somehow get your money for their functions. Of the most popular and completely free, IMHO - only Total Commander
Although, for sure, there are still worthy ones; let's see what people will offer)
Total Commander - free, no BS or ads, and full lean back support (although you still have to side load it from your phone or pc using Google Play - sign in to Google Play on your PC or Phone, click install, then select a device to install it to; your android tv device, and then click install again) really wish Google would add this to the Android TV Play Store after all it does have lean back support and appears right on the home screen after install :/
Blast from the past. Total Commander does all of these things, is small and has great plugins.
SMB via the LAN plugin.
Get a file manager app (I recommend Total Commander) and navigate to /games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds/ on your internal storage / SD card to see your worlds and copy them elsewhere presumably (TC has a Google Drive plugin which works well for backing stuff up).
Total Commander I imagine - I haven't used it myself.
Solid Explorer does everything I can think of needing out of a file manager, all while being hella pretty.
Total Commander has always been top notch, on Windows and Android.
Lots of useful plugins also, including wifi transfer to other devices.
At least on my Samsung phone, the default file browser won't let you open it. I'd recommend downloading the Total Commander file manager, here [link] . Once that is installed, navigate to the pbw. My downloads folder is at /sdcard/Downloads. Hold on the APK and click "Open with". Next, select the Pebble app. It'll navigate to the Pebble app and prompt you for permission. Click next and it'll install
I couldn't get it to work for the longest time, but I tried Total Commander and it worked right away. Very odd that Solid Explorer wouldn't work.
Download Total Commander & then access your sdcard after you follow the quick directions it will popup giving the OS access to the cards /
After that, download its LAN Plugin add-on for easily transferring media & sideloading APK's.
Total Commander & its LAN Plugin are what you want. Totally free & makes transferring Media & APK files remotely a breeze!
Yes you can, micro USB to fill sized USB cable in combination with Total Commander and it's USB Plugin
Total commander this one should work without trouble if it doesn't ask for root access when you try to access root folder check in the settings if you need to turn it on there.
I found a solution with Total Commander and the USB Stick Plugin.
It's a pretty silly user interface and the USB plugin costs a buck but it works.
Let me know how it goes. :)
What you need is an otg cable, total commander app, and Microsoft exfat ntfs USB by paragon app.
Total Commander, its extremely powerful, has plugin support. I use it on windows too and it puts windows explorer to shame. Its pretty damn amazing [link]
No prob! Was worried that I might have been a bit harsh.
To add onto the excellent answer by /u/logikgear (as I have no experience with SyncThing or OwnCloud) - I wouldn't recommend ES File Explorer Pro on Android anymore. Dev was up to some shady shit at some point, and I'm a one strike kind of person with that kind of thing. Point in case, one of Netgear's apps suddenly requested root (Superuser) permission on my Android phone - my next logical course of action was to install third party firmware on all of the Netgear equipment I had in the apartment.
"Total Commander" is free, and has official plug-in support for everything under the sun, including SMBv2 (Windows network shares), OneDrive, Google Drive, you name it. It's a bare-bones file explorer that's really most useful for rooted users, but you can use it to browse network shares, SFTP, cloud services, etc. and handle copy/move operations between them and your local phone storage.
My backup solution for my phone is...abnormal and excessive. It's got USB3 and I have TWRP, so every few weeks I run a nandroid backup to an SSD. I delete the oldest one when I'm out of space.
You might be using ES File Explorer but you should be using Total Commander or if you really want to splash out you can pay for MIXplorer Silver.
Total Commander for moving files across home networks is great.
Total Commander via it's media player has support for equalizer which includes a loudness booster option.
Total Commander play store link
Total Commander SMBv2 support, no ads, requires plugins, busy and unintuitive interface
Don't know whether it's open-source.
Are you sure that SMB is the issue? I streamed LAN video just fine over SMBv1 and SMBv2 using MiXplorer.
Total Commander provides free SMBv2 support. Try streaming with that file manager (with free LAN plugin) before pursuing an SMBv3 solution.
LAN can be enabled via free plugin
Even Total Commander and Gost Commander have 2 panels.
I'm not really sure what you are asking here: I use Total Commander. It asks for permission the first time you try to write to the SD card and then has permenent access to manage the card.
So I got myself an OTG cable. I managed to do MIDI out from the OP-1 with an app I didn't know. There was some lag. Anyone uses something special to play MIDI instruments or the other way around to control the OP-1 synths?
About file access, I manage to make it work with two apps:
I was wonder which app you used since FAT-16 is often not supported by default.
For file explorer I'd recommend
It will automatically take root and lets you browse all folders you want. Also fast to start and has direct links to the important folders directly at the start page.
I use ES File Explorer Pro. If you don't want to pay for the pro version, don't get the ES free file explorer. If you want something free that works well, try Total Commander ([link])
Total Commander File Manager: [link]
Paragon ExFAT NTFS USB Android Plug-in: [link]
You need root to remove system apps regardless of which file manager or system app remover you use. I only removed the phone/sms apps as there is no sim card in the phone and thus redundant for now.
File manager: Total Commander. Ugly as fuck, but you won't find a more functionally complete file manager anywhere. Especially if you install some plugins.
Personally i use Total Commander
With a add-on for ftp FTP Plugin for Total Commander
Works great for me.
Delete Es File Explorer, it's a notification from that. They supposedly spy on the devices it's installed on.
Then go get yourself Total Commander (Yes, it's AndroidTV compatible) & its LAN plugin for easy APK & Media sideload transfers.
Don't worry, you can easily move the files over to the SD card manually with a file explorer app such as Total Commander.
By PC I assume you mean windows, so here's what I use. If you're familiar with how to share files from Windows, this is a pretty easy and free way to do it.
1) Download TotalCommander and the LAN Plugin to your phone.
2) Share a folder on your PC to have homegroup reader or writer permissions.
2.b) It's helpful if you assign a static IP to your PC so that for the next step you just need to set up the connection profile once, otherwise the next time your PC starts up it'll have a different IP. (Now that I think about it though, you might be able to use the domain name for your PC which will avoid all this IP business)
3) In TotalCommander, click on "LAN (Windows Shares)" and add a profile for your PC.
4) Connect to your PC and access your shared folder. Select the files/folders you want and click the copy button at the bottom to transfer to or from your phone.
I use Total Commander now and to be honest, I love it more than I ever did ES
I use total commander, it is great.
Total Commander. Do it.
I'm currently using MiXplorer and am quite happy with it. The only problem with it is that you have to download the .apk from XDA and install it manually (also no automatic updates).
Before that I was using Total Commander and FX.
I find this one of the best
Agreed.. use Total Commander.
Have you tried TotalCommandee with its different plugins?
Fantastic software by Christian Ghisler.
Thirdparty NTFS plugin:
Total Commander for Android
In that case, you could create the folder using Total Commander instead of connecting it to a desktop.
You can also..
Download the Amazon Video APK version 3.11.44. Don't download version 4.x. It will crash on most shows and also the game controller isn't supported.
Upload the apk to Google Drive.
Install Total Commander on your Shield
Install the Drive plugin for Total Commander on your Shield.
Open Total Commander, click on Google Drive, navigate to your Google Drive and click on the APK to install. Make sure you allow apks from unknown sources in Security & Restrictions > Unknown Sources
Network it via Total Commander & its LAN plugin or directly via Bluetooth, if your PC has it? If not a 4.0 Dongle is super cheap.
I really enjoy Total Commander. [link]
I'd suggest Total Commander.
Total Commander File Manager
And it's completely free.
Technically the best file manager for Android is Total Commander, you will need a separate (free) plugin for FTP access.
Now since It's ugly as hell and most people want modern looking apps I usually recommend Fx File Explorer since I find it better than Solid Explorer.
I started using Total Commander on my HTC Desire. Still using the app on my current phone today.
Been using these on multiple devices for years, they all get the job done quite well & the 1st 2 are FREE.
 Total Commander & its LAN plugin
 Root Explorer
Faster, ad-free alternative: Total Commander, plus network plugins (as necessary, such as WiFi/WLAN or LAN plugin)
Also, check for driver issues which may prevent MTP devices from appearing.
That's my favorite.
Heh, I just updated my post about this problem and possible solutions. I might just make a new post about this but for redundancy...
You'll need a file manager (I use "Total Commander").
That's it. The reason you need to copy or move it is due the fact that file disappears once you reload the game.
I might try automating this process using tasker, but it would be hard since the frog randomly decides to take trip thus you wouldn't know when the prompt to view/save a photo would appear.
Manually backing up your game progress on Android
I found out that if you want to make a backup of your game manually, just copy of the entirety of the /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/jp.co.hit_point.tabikaeru/ directory. Restoring this folder after redownloading the app from the play store on another phone worked fine. You can probably ignore the ./cache directory but I haven't tested that.
Try this app. [link]
I think total commander will let you modify the date and time of files.
Check out Total Commander & its LAN plugin, works great & both are FREE.
Root Explorer incorporates this feature as well, but is premium.
I've read its free edition, Explorer does as well, but can't speak on it personally being I've never used it.
Try Total Commander (its ad free) - [link]
Switched to Total Commander (for Android) the minute ES File Explorer began with all the pop-up sh*t.
And total commander?
I didn't even realise you could get that for Windows, I thought it was just on Android haha
