    Wasted my time. It doesn't work for me even with the File Commander app. I tried two OTG cables. One didn't work at all. With the other, the hard disk was detected by this program. I click "mount" and then it sees it's a 1TB NTFS drive. Then I click "open" and it launches File Commander but it just sees an empty drive even though there's tons of stuff on it. Additionally, no other program sees the drive which is the whole point of this as I want to open the media files with different apps.

    microsoft exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon software unlocked I paid for this app hoping that i could connect via otg, then I would be able to browse, copy and paste, etc. My dreams were crushed as I went from one file manager to another and no app will collaborate with this one. It would be better if you had a file manager to go along with this app for $10.

  3. Michael T-avatar

    microsoft exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon software cracked This app is hot crashing garbage. Very inconsistent device recognition. After failure of connection it would freeze up my phone so I'd have to reboot it. Most of the time I got "Device connected is not compatible". Sometimes I got that error along with a permissions error. And them one out of 8 times it worked. I'm so glad I didn't pay for this. After trying several apps I finally landed on another one that actually works.

    microsoft exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon software unlocked apk My pc was virgin until i messed up with it, but i had NTFS formatted pendrive and didn't had neccessary file for pc to load, i grabbed an ISO file, decompressed it and transferred everything to my pendrive using this great app. NTFS can only be detected when you have installed this app. I did all this using only my phone.

  5. IT Support-avatar

    microsoft exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon software full crack Nice apps, It work as intended. I am buying the value package. I do not understand the negative but I am happy with total commander and this plugin. I can work with my tablet everywhere and bring external harddrive without worry that my external should plug into laptop or PC. Do note External hardrive would need external power.

  6. David B-avatar

    download Invaluable for the utility it offers unrooted devices. I have found it slow at times, and unstable at times, but overall it gets the job done. One UX suggestion I can offer: from the notification shade, if i tap the persistent notice could that please open the app? I find I instinctively try to tap the notification every time I am ready to unmount a volume and that doesn't actually work.

  7. Krishnalok das-avatar

    microsoft exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon software After payment(not in trying mode)... also it work 4TB xfat and Nts, amazing application. Please update and improve as sometimes the copy start very slow in Nts then get speed in some hard disk. I have Oppo zoom and it work...fantastic work. Need to pay and have some troubles in beginning then Ok. Last do not connect one 4TB and 2TB same time unless the otg support power bank supply. Update and your application will become more and more popular!

  8. RJ Di Nitto-avatar

    microsoft exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon software cracked apk If I could write "Zero" stars I would - Don't Waste your money! Keeps telling me I haven't paid for it... I did for the 4-pack. Several wtite-ins no response; re-installed several times all under this account

    microsoft exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon software crack Reasonably decent application which allows you to view the NTFS format drives. Total Commander is a clunky file appliction which you need to use with it. Recent update to Android 10 broke the easier "Manage Files" radial in the software making it a lot less user friendly.

  10. Milan Vasani-avatar

    microsoft exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon software pro apk purchased all the file systems and i'm glad that i got my wd elements 1.5 tb hdd working on my OnePlus 3t with the help of HOC usb 3.0 hub(which has dedicated micro usb power supply which ensures that hdd is getting enough power with the help of 12v AMBRANE adapter). i had so much trouble to get hdd the enough power. searched so many places name it whatever you like e.g amazon,flipkart, aliExpress etc. then finally i worked it around with this method. its reliable + file transfers are too fast.

    To me it seems that most of the bad reviews are coming from people who don't understand that they need to use Total Commander in combination with this app. Personally I have no issues mounting NTFS partitions and neither I've got a rooted device nor I had to purchase the paid version. But I do have to say one thing, I would definetly pay for EXT4 support.

  12. Ujjain Sagar-avatar

    I just want to say thank you for making such useful tools. It is purely for power users. I almost lost hope that my 128 gb pendrive will ever work without formatting it to fat32 but it made so easy for me.

  13. Alexander Nestle-avatar

    Alexander Nestle


    Bullit proof. I was pleasantly surprised that I could mount an NTFS hard drive, with an OTG cable, that I couldn't mount under Windows nor Linux. Bravo! It would be really great if Paragon had a format option too.

  14. Adarsh Rao-avatar

    Installed all 3 application recommonded by paragon. I couldn't copy files to ntfs or fat formatted pendrive from LG G7 mobile. Sent mail asking for solution. Again same reply recommended to install xplore app. Then request to refund of 218 rupees. No refund option from google or Paragon. Hence no star to this app.

  15. Lou J-avatar

    Works somewhat. Worked with some effort on my Android Shield. I could not get it to work on Samsung Dex mode.

  16. Rajesh Yadam-avatar

    Using paid version. Very easy to use external HDD, pen drives, memory cards with ntfs and other formats. Meeting all my basic requirements like cut, copy, paste, delete etc. Highly recommended. Thanks to the developers.

  17. Jason Smith-avatar

    Doesn't always work. Dont understand why. It works about 80% of the time. Its a good application when working.

    Sucks. Worst app ever used. Took around 2 days to copy 1gb of file and that too is corrupted not completely copied. Seem to he cheated after paying for app. Third class. Just over writing in description nothing works as they said. 🖕

  19. Luke Edler-avatar

    Needs total commander app for a USB drive ok works hard to use at 1st no select all which is stupid when most people would have well over 100 photos movies to move no notification to tell you if the stuff you moved has worked and it's plain ugly and hard to under stand Thank you 4 quick reply added extra star but a little dear wen it's free thru laptop

  20. JJ Walker-avatar

    After wasting so much time running to pc with sd cards I found what works perfectly with this fantastic app. Very impressed indeed, well done devs 😁👍

  21. Jez Brook-avatar

    App is essentially a gateway to the paid version. This app is 100% pointless... In response to the Dev ... first item you mention in the title exFAT is not free...

    I have purchased almost all the packages, why do I have to pay for something I have already paid for? I will not be willing to tolerate such serious behavior! So this app for me one big scam! ______ After Google and developer notifications, everything works just as it did before. Well thank you.

  25. Opridai 206-avatar

    You have to pay for it to use it. Its not a free version. Also it cannot unlock bitlocker protected harddisks.

  26. Edgar Adonis-avatar

    Makes life so much easier to be able to access my NTFS formatted hard drive directly from my Android tablet and phone.

    No option to format sd card. Only mount and unmount option. Waist of a time.

    Is not easy to navigate. I think, with a little a bit of work to make it easy to operate. Then, 5 star is a subject to rate.

  32. Rodolfo León-avatar

    Very easy to mount my external hdd to my Galaxy tab S5e and transfer files.

  33. eM Pe-avatar

    I paid for fat32 just to realize it is fully supported by stock android... Bummer. Requirement of total commander while other file managers work (solid explorer). Why is exFat twice as expensive? Stock linux kernel has it.

  34. Parth Sehgal-avatar

    It helped me to copy 5 gb file from my phone's internal storage to NTFS 8gb usb connected via otg.

  35. WA8KHP --avatar

    Can this software support 2 devices mounted at same time? I want to mount using USB Hub an exFAT micro SD card and NTFS NVME 2TB drive. I want to copy/backup .jpg/.mp4 video from Hero8 or drone to NVME drive using Total Commander on an Android phone. I have only been able to mount 1 exFAt device and copy video to phone then mount 1 NTFS NVME device and copy video from phone to drive. This feature would be MAJOR break through for all with minimum hardware/cost.

  36. Earth Angel-avatar

    Brilliant.. I can backup my android phone to my NTFS external hard drive... Very impressed.

  37. Mad Zombie-avatar

    very useful to connect my external hardisk with smartphone.., I'm not regret to pay it..😊

    Everything is great and working but can you guys improve the interface.

    Why do I need to have Total Commander installed when you support x-plore. An option to choose the default file explorer to use would good.

    No select multiple command to copy or move. The commander app also is ugly to run the videos but else it the exfat app doesn't work

    Does it really need total commander to operate? Total commander doesn't even have multiple file selection like My stock Samsung file manager

  71. daniel werner-avatar

    Exfat license for Android was released in 2019 as free license but paragon still claims 11$ for only read access. This is too much. The app indicates free content, but for use one needs a paid license. This is not a fair behaviour. App shall clearly indicate that it is not free at all. Why does Google play store not prove for such questions? And why is the driver not integrated in the system? I don't want to use the paragon file manager.

  72. Samir Junaid-avatar

    It's not free, when try to mount the USB the app shows the subscription options or start a free trial with linking your social account with the app!

  73. Fernando Bresslau-avatar

    Fernando Bresslau


    They lie about the price! The price for one file system is shown as R$3,50 in the app, which is less than a dollar. When you click the buy button, Google Play shows USD 4,99, which is more than 5 times what the app says. I was willing to buy their service, now I am disappointed and disgusted. Ihr solltet euch schämen, Paragon!

  74. Ion Mihaila-avatar

    Can't do anything unless you sign in to Facebook or Google and after that says the trial already expired. What about an honest no sign in rubbish trial that you actually can test?

  75. Nazz Mull-avatar

  76. Shrawan Muthyala-avatar

    Shrawan Muthyala


    In my experience this app is very bad working. Some times it is not working, some times automatically stops working. But no way to choose other apps. So please improve this app to use better performence. Finally no need to spent money for this application.

  77. Lyall Burne-avatar

    Basically this is ok. Promises a lot without actually delivering. For example, using the Samsung S9+ or the latest Samsung Tab A with a variety of flash drives and hard drives this app can NOT rename any of them or any partitions thereon either. It tries hard but fails every time. Also it takes forever to compose a directory. I have paid for all format types. There are good functions however and that is why I'm keeping them on. When first installing this app, it insisted I installed Total Commander too. Absolutely hate that too but this app automatically goes to it once you open your hard/flashdrive. How can I change this? My final assessment is: This app has some great functionality but fails to deliver on others. Treat as Work Under Construction and be prepared to be totally frustrated using it. NOT RECOMMENDED!!

  78. Matt X-avatar

    Knocking two stars off due to "Share with Facebook/Google" required to trial NTFS mounting. Don't like apps that try to weasel into social media just to see if the app is going to work. It was a gamble to try this app as I had to pay for the filesystem unlock just to see if it would work. Fortunately for me it did, but the whole no trial version without social media is shady and I doubt I'll recommend this app to anyone or buy anything else from this developer simply because of their ad practices. Wish the Samsung built-in file manager worked with the mount points this app created. I don't like ads, and find it suspicious that the required file manager is one that has ads built into it. Why not offer a paid file manager that works and doesn't require ads or social media connections to work? TL;DR: Stop the ad nonsense, do not offer a trial that requires social media logins, stop being shady. It's a good product, it'll stand on its own for people that need this.

  79. Ebert Rens-avatar

    I would have gladly paid for all file systems if it actually worked well. Though it's the closest I've gotten to working with my external drive on my phone, it always only works for a few seconds, so in over 15 minutes I've only been able to transfer a PDF to the drive, because every time I have to remount, and your app doesn't understand that, so every time I have to reboot it, and even then only a few times did it get as far as actually modifying the drive...

  80. Tim Elliston-avatar

    This is a cleaver and extremely useful app that allows you to access your ex-FAT and NTFS drives. Once the drive is 'mounted' the data is generally accessible via most file managers and explorers. So worth the money for the full version.

  81. Shawn Smith-avatar

    Edit: I installed total Commander and this was a plug in. I didn't know if it was the same or not but it was. I went back into the trial to see what the options were and it auto signed me in which I didn't know was going to happen. Anyway, it seems to work for what I need so I might buy it. My only reservations are that they tried to make you sign in through an I'd for a trial which I have never had to do with any other trial app and people are saying it keeps telling them to buy it after they bought it. Otherwise I would probably give it 5 stars because of the issues I stated if I buy it and start to have issues I'm going to get an immediate refund even if I have to go through Google. If it had a regular trial would have bought it after testing and if several people were not saying they kept getting a buy it again to use it and no immediate fix or help. Which also doesn't make any sense. If you bought something why would you have to do anything else to have access to it. All of this together is extremely shady and really scary. I can't tell if this is a good product or not yet but if it is it's a shame that it has this associated with it because it would be 5 star purchase. If I buy it and have no issue I might bump it up to 4 stars but the shady aspects will keep it from five stars. I hate not giving anything 5 stars so I hope for other people they stop this practice because this isn't normal and Google possible needs to be aware if they don't stop this weirdness. Older: It Say to buy it to try it or sign in with Facebook or Google and share about it to get a two day free trial. I don't use Facebook and I'm not willing to sign in with my personal accounts on third party apps. So it was a waste of time. I might have bought it but I'm not sure it's what I needed or even worked right. Something weird happened when I tried to uninstall it. The tablet did a restart on it's own and the app was still installed so I had to try to uninstall it again before I finally got it off the tablet. I'm not sure if that had something to do with the app or not but it freaked me out.

    Works as advertised. No complains at all.

    Pixel 2 XL running Android 9. App rarely is able to properly access the USB-C hubs that I'm trying to use. I've tried the GoPro branded dongle, as well as an Anker dongle. I plug the dongle into my phone, the app launches, and claims to be trying to connect, but eventually I get a "Connected device is not supported". Unplug, replug and same thing. After 10 or so tries, sometimes the volume shows up for mounting. Sometimes I can access files, but often, the file closes, and the mounted volume disappears from the list. Quite often the phone will lockup in various parts of this procedure and the phone will restart completely.

    Good app 👌 to import and export files to USB and SSD. Need improvement in consistency in detecting the device once it is connected. Every time I connect the device, at least I have to try for 5times

    App work well. I get tired of review nag screen.. often have to restore purchase. Can be a pain to get working at times when clearing out play services. So only use if a geek

    Really great app and works fine for me. I only have one little problem with app notifications on Android 5. Cann't swipe the notification to hide it even after a flash drive is unmounted and deattached. And the notification never disappears by itself, and doesn't react on tapping it. It just is on my screen until the tablet is restarted

    I purchased the app for NTFS support. I am trying to copy files from mobile storage to NTFS pen drive using inbuilt app browser. It shows copy progress bar on pull down notification. But it always stuck at some percentage. It never copies full file. I am not able to copy large files. Need a good flawless browser to copy files else this app is useless to me. Using Note 9 mobile.

    Updated* that is not the case it is not free, i get free trial for 2 days by signing up from gmail.

    ExFat works with my drive, HFS+ works for one of my two drives only. I'd like to know what would happen if the app gets killed by the OS? You could use a foreground service to vastly reduce that risk. Also, the foreground service's notification could be used to unmount the drives without having to go back in the app, which would be much more convenient.

    It's not free. This is the only app I've ever bought, but I'd say it's definitely worth the price. This app lets you mount external drives with different file systems that Android doesn't natively support...all without needing to root your device! I have 7 different hard drives pulled from my desktop PC. Using a SATA/IDE to USB adapter connected to the USB OTG cable I was able to access all of them right from my phone with this app. You can open, cut, copy, paste, move, delete and edit

  91. Alex Cimbal-avatar

    The app works 50% of the time. I use it to backup photos from sd card to my phone. It starts out ok but then copies the rest of the files as 0 byte files. I think it's something to do with Android's power management, if I use the phone during the copy process then files will copy ok, but if I leave it untouched then eventually they'll just be saved as 0b files. Is there a solution for this?

    great software when it works... it seems to occasionally lose permissions, or did at least once after rebooting on initial install.. after telling it had access to storage and stuff (again) it appears to be working fine.. this issue is what prevented me from giving it a 5 star.. been using paragon drivers for cross platform drive access for about 8 years now.. almost lost faith when it didn't work after rebooting

  93. VERGEL VITUG-avatar

    i would given a full blown 5star rating if the app could integrate with android web browsers. Xplore app could integrate cloud services, but I have yet to figure out transfering large data over 4gb on an android. It was foolish of me to believe that paragon could achieve desirable results, when in fact the stock chrome browser can't even recognize ntfs as a format for Android devices. So whats up with that? Wasn't this also the selling point, or was I expecting too much?

  94. Dennis Snyder-avatar

    Doesn't read or write to solid state drive connected to phone. Tried different formats and different files. Couldn't even create a folder on drive connected to phone.

    Horrible. It does no recognize the external flash and ask for a lot of permissions. Removed from my cellphone.

    WARNING!!! THIS APP DOES NOT WORK ON ANDROID TV AND CUSTOMER SERVICE HAS NOT ISSUED THE REFUND I REQUESTED MORE THAN A MONTH AGO. On my NVIDIA Shield TV 2017, I get as far as 'Select Paragon File System' in X-plore or FX and then I can't navigate down to 'Paragon File System Link External Memory Driver' (third selection down). The DPAD arrows and enter button do nothing. I purchased the HFS+ driver (my USB drive is formatted for Mac HFS+) for $4.99 thinking that it would work without having to go through the navigation scenario but I still had that same issue. It is like this app was not designed for Android TV but only for phone or tablet. I even tried using a keyboard app in touchpad mode from a tablet but got no response at all when trying to select the item. At the time, I was on vacation and wanted to watch movies on the USB hard drive. I had limited time to solve this and Paragon customer service was slow to respond and of no help whatsoever. I opened the ticket on 16-06-2019, I requested a refund on 21-06-2019, it is now 23-07-2019 and I have not received a refund. Their terrible customer service keeps dragging their feet and delaying the refund indefinitely.

    As others have said this app is in the guise of a free app but immediate further purchase(s) of software are required in order to use it at all, except it does tell you what type of format system is being used on the connected device so you can purchase the correct software to access it, in my case exfat. After paying for exfat it enabled me to mount a hdd connected to my phone but would not allow me to mount it again! £4.49p, (Google giving a £1 discount today), completely wasted! Avoid this!

  99. Jadon Clegg-avatar

    Takes 5 minutes to mount a drive, and once it does, only a few folders are visible, and NO FILES. But if I stick it in any computer, all the files are there still. Not even worth it if it were free, but they scammed me into paying $10 thinking it would work after paying. But no. Don't waste your time and money on this app.

    Useful app I use to manage my ex-FAT and NTFS drives. Don't mind the negative reviews coz I never had issues with this app, seems pretty easy to use actually.
