Reviews From google play store

Another ridiculously bad app from Samsung. I can download a file, which gets saved to my phone's internal downloads folder, then check the 'downloads' category within this app and... it's not there. Why have a downloads category if you're not going to include files that are downloaded into the downloads folder? How can they mess up something so simple?

Fast, intuitive, no more 100 clicks. Great sort, move+copy, indexing options, instant view updts. Wish file apps had an 'undo' key. Keep! Thx.

Used to be great when I first started using it but now the rewards points are useless and there is nothing worth getting with them anymore.

This used to be a decent app. But somewhere along the line it began having problems with my sd card

When I updated My Files on my Android phone, my SD card was no longer readable.

Great Application better than all the others! @ligHT the A70 is a cheap budget phone nothing to be proud of! 😁😂🤣

My Files app has been corrupted..... When I try to READ a PDF File this app defaults to PRINT a PDF file

Some technical problem in game update in samsung file

The earlier version was working well and fine until an update came in few months back. Features are similar except now I CANNOT MOVE FILES TO SD CARD OR EXTERNAL USB FLASH DRIVE. My Files App version 3.5.94 works better when it comes to moving files. Whay shall l do. Now l have to remove all these files using a computer 🙃🙃🙃 When l click move to move files it says move it is. Why move in its own place...😢??

I'm a Samsung G8 user. I checked my storage using this app and it says that 58ish GB is used, meaning there's only 6ish GB available. When I did storage analysis, it says that images take up around 5ish GB, videos 1ish GB, and guess what, 51ish GB for other, and I couldn't find out what that "other" is for, so I really don't know what to do to get more space. However, I checked my storage using Google Files, and it says that only 34ish GB is used, meaning 30ish GB is still available. This difference is HUGE, and I really don't know what to do about it, I'm not sure which one is correct. Sadly, this app cannot be uninstalled since it comes with Samsung. Any thoughts?

Easy to locating.tranfering.managing files

This pre-installed app was fine, had it for yrs on all my Samsung phns; does what you need & does it well. But omg it's become an insane data hog 👹 over past 6-8 months, crazy it now takes almost as much room as FB - it's only a file mgr for crying out loud! Something seriously fishy here as more than quadrupled in size... why? Can't be a good explanation. Time to unload.

When I save music singles in "Download" folder, they are displayed in all player apps without the album cover, However, when I save them in any other folder, they will be displayed with the album cover of the first track I upload in that folder...example, if i only save a single track into the internal "Music" folder like "Eminem "Lose yourself".. then every other track I upload into that folder will have "Eminem Lose yourself" as the album art cover. This happens for All folders except Download

I've had LG phones with slow and limited storage, yet they never gave me the problems that my samsung does. I have an a70 with good memory and ram, but everytime an app tried to open files and import ANY type of file it crashes and shows me nothing but a black screen. if i could change the default file viewer that would be great, but instead it automatically opens My Files and crashes. It's very hard to use a phone when I can't even view anything on it.

Actually,I wanna know what's the default settings of "sort by" since I accidently clicked on the size category button apon can I get back to its original state? please support AV1 8K ...Thanks! anyway,some are unable to categorize(遺留) into the categories like photos and videos after the update as I'll have to search for the rest of the remaining files apon thousands of files! scrolling stops immediately after I released my fingers(left)categorization list....

I used to love this app as it did everything I wanted it to, but now I have one issue. When I try to use the search feature, it does not search anything on my SD card, yet I can manually navigate to any file. This is quite obnoxious as I have all of my downloads go there. I'm not sure why it no longer does this, but any assistance getting this working would be appreciated.

Hopeless app as doesnt show the options to "Delete" the files. Long press on the file and the files gets selected but there used be options at the bottom to delete, move, copy which are missing now. You have to restart the phone to see those options back.

Currently using Samsung S10 Plus. In Internal storage, my files are sorted by name and ascending. But once I clicked to view a file and then swiping either left or right to view the next or previous file, the order doesn't match. It seems to be sorted by date created and descending. I've tested this Gallery app, once again my files are sorted by name and ascending. I did the same actions by clicking a file to view and swiping left and right, the order of the files is correct. Pls rectify.

Well made File Manager developed by Samsung. Unsure if only able to be used by Samsung devices but if not, try it out. Settings are ideal & Cloud storage access is easy to navigate. Transfer files from your device to cloud drives with great ease. Samsung, Google & Microsoft Cloud connectivity with ability to copy & move files & folders to & fro any location using this app. Only flaw I found is that duplicates are created instead of overwrites. Doesn't ask, just multiple files.

When trying to get the bonus rolls videos sometimes they work but I get a max of four when it is supposed to be 20 if I'm correct. Can you please correct this is and maybe compensate me for the dice lost and note received. Also An issue with the scartchers dont give the bonus rolla at all.

Ever since Samsung shoved thru their latest "updates" my phone is screwed. Insanely fast battery drains, constant banner warnings even when requested to stop, ridiculously long charging times(rt now it's 24hrs on the exact same equipment that took less than an hr before the "updates"), on and on and on. Battery issues are just the tip. Didn't happen before the "updates", started immediately after. If these are "updates", why buy this cr@p?

I normally like the app as I have been a Note user since Note 5. For some reason recently i have been having issues with a lot of the samsung apps. I transferred all my ringtones and notifications from my SD card to a folder in My Files. Now when I go to sound in settings either to ringtones or notifications I do not see any of my sounds. When I look in the folders in My files they are there but when I go to the app for some reason My Files does not allow me to access permissions.

This is extremely frustrating. I can see that my files have been moved here...without my choice or knowledge now accessing them is impossible. This "app" ( torture device forced upon the unsuspecting user to hijack their personal information then send you in a never ending circle that leads to nowhere but the land of madness) this "app" is about as sinister as it gets when it comes to forcibly planting functions that are harvesting our personal information in Order to sell it by mining it.. b.s!

Can't see anymore icons of apk on my S10+ SD card. Everything is green now. Why you take out good things? With every update just more restrictions. You took off call recorder but only for top devices. Why older phones or different models have no problem??? Stupid policy Samsung! Very disappointed. And don't tell me about EU regulations. Big lie. Want back the good things .

In storage analysis, Duplicate Files are shown. When we go to delete them both the files are selected when we select Select All option. And if deleted both duplicate files are deleted. But instead only one file should be deleted or selected to delet among the two duplicate files. Such that one file will be deleted an one will remain in Device. Look forward into this to avoid deletation of both files. Thank You.

Will give five star when I'm able to save file from the web to a folder in the file manager. Moving files is also not easy with this manager pls make it more intuitive. Other than those, the app is clean and well organised.

I was reading some of the critical reviews for this app and I noticed that several of them said that you only got the option to move dial from where internal drive to the secret folder but if you look down on bottom you can actually move to the SD card but it's in a different place on the bottom instead of being on the Moor menu. please pardon any grammar or spelling cuz I'm using my voice typing cuz my hands are swollen up from bee stings got nine of them got me today have a good day.

There is a major problem within this app. The moving file function doesnt work in some folder, for example i tried to move a folder in obb folder to root or android and nothing hapenned, but in some folder like folders in sd card its working. I thought it was some permission setting, but the setting section in this app is very limited. This is a very huge flaw since this app a default file manager for samsung and cant be uninstalled. Need to resolve this problem as soon as possible

Can you give us option to add multiple clouds, like mega cloud (only samsung, google and onedrive are supported). Also I would love if fTP server is integrated withing the app, just like iPadOS which allows me to connect to SMB server. Please add FTP server, using third party apps does give much of a protection and interface that we need.

Why can't you create a new folder? Seems ridiculous Edit : Can't create the folder by just going into a folder to create one. But what you can do is, select a file to copy, go to a folder you want to create the folder, by selecting options a create folder button will appear, then you can create a folder. Eventhough this is supposed to be minimalistic, I feel it's not user friendly, create folder option should always appear in options.

Absolutely worthless update! I am unable to use the app at all because without fail it crashes immediately upon starting up. What's the point of an update without any significant or improved features...not that I would know since I cant even open and use the darn app! This needs to be addressed ASAP as it is apparently common. FWIW im on an Note9 512GB. As a new adoper of Android from Apple I am really disappointed in the clear lack of quality control regarding updates for apps so ciritcal to OS

Images inside a folder that in a folder can only be viewed one at a time. You cannot swipe left or right, instead you have to click the back button then select the next photo you would like to view. Hope Samsung can do something about this for more convenience. Thanks!

I see after several updates that you all have not put back on the option to transfer files from internal storage to sd card and vise versa. I don't understand why that option was taken away.

Recently this app started asking permission to access all my files and even delete all of my google cloud files. This is not right and I hate and distrust Google even more. Google will try to manipulate other companies and apps into allowing Google unlimited and unwarranted access to everything on a cellphone. This is such bulls#!$

This app and the "Samsung internet" app and something called 'Samsung UI one' or something like that are actively working together with a hacker to run scripts on the device to take over all devices on my home network, email accounts, bank accounts etc. I've gathered enough information to summit to the FBI at this point. Android and Samsung should remove these apps immediately.

This is one of the best file manager , but when we want to extract a compressed file there are no option ' where we want to extract file ' only it extract in the current folder. Please fix this problem.

Very easily & fabulous storage app

I don't get it. I keep getting my storage space is low pop ups but no remedy buttons to fix. I get see most if my gigs are being eaten up by "other" but how is this supposed to help? I am new to this phone game [50 y/o] so shouldn't this be programmed down to the dumbest common denominator like me?

I had this app disabled for years and always used third party file managing apps. The newest version is quite functional and I'm pleasantly surprised. I like the integrated Drive option because it's efficient. I'll update this review as I continue to use the app. (Galaxy S10)

Terrible and limited app. When I use this app in secure folder, then I can only transfer files from USB to secure folder, I can even transfer the folders they are in. I can't even use alternative file managers to get around problem. What is the point in Samsung secure folder and their apps if it is going to be so limited.

I really like Samsung File! Except for Logging me out and now I can't logge back in! No Matter how many times I put my information in it says WRONG INFORMATION. And I can't go away further. Diana

When i move data from internal storage to Obb folder in android folder its done 100% But after this when i again move data from Obb to internal storage again its give error on moving. Its give only copy permission why?? And kindly solve this issue because in android 8.0 a5 2017 i used it and perfect working but in a8 2018 its failed. And one more thing when i download any thing like apk files any song video its show the file in last not on uper means not show on first. Please update and solve it

Bloatware! Samsung - love your phones, but cut the bloatware. We use Google Drive for Backups, and all storage - so anything you provide should work with Drive, including Samsung Backup! Stop forcing bloatware we don't want, and just concentrate on the phones!

Can't move a file to move on to their folders, For e.g , downloaded a game that is in the Share it folder but need it to move on the Obb folder it doesn't work, please fix. Update and Revised it again thankyou. Its says easy to move and copy, Copy yes but move nothing happens. Does not do anything.

Terrible wish there was a zero star rating. This app saved documents in different folders, made it tough to manage files, photos, shared folders prev in Google are seem lost.

since the latest update aug 2019 I cannot move files to SD it let's me select all and then only gives option "move here" with "here" being the internal storage folder I'm trying to move! it keeps saying source and destination are the same

Hi Dev Team, Im so disappointed. Please fix moving pictures from internal to external once moved pictures original date was change too to the date it was moved. I want back the original date from the time it was taken. How can i fix that? Give me solution and i need answer. I badly needed the date it was originally taken.Arrrrrrg! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Very good back availability

This is the best file manager out there. Love the storage analysis and space management. So awesome to that you can find out those super large files. Love the analysis on all storage types! So much versatility. This is a fantastic app! Keep it up Sammy! Love it.

I think it's not the best file manager out there it needs improvements and the animations always hang and the menu has bugs when it show up and disappear. I am always disappointed after using the app please care more!

I would use this app regularly if I could access my home network. however it appears that it's not set up for that, only local and cloud service. For home network access I'm relegated to a 2nd party app. I would request that during your work on the next update you would add access to home network. It is a plus to be able to move files around between computers in your home network. Thanks

This file manager is awesome, especially now that I'm finally able to view and extract .zip files. It also helps that the app is the best aesthetically that I've seen on Android for any file manager, especially Google's.

I have have all of my files disappear, reappear tampered with. I've had some of my files have cover ups on them. I truly thought I had a hacker or virus.This has been going on for years. I always uncheck automated update but somehow it still updates itself anyways. I've complained. it's useless. When I go back to look at my review it's gone.

Same as Luis Vasquez reviewed on May 12, 2019. I don't have a clue where my downloads are, since last update. And now I "do not have" an SD external card - unrecognizable (32 GB). Tried everything, restart, power off/on multiple times, took out, same 'steps' and than back inside. Didn't install anything new or behave differently on web/phone or in some/any app. SD is 3 months old (new practically) Kingston. (Anybody) HELP! PLEASE!

The app is not working properly. I'm not able to open anything in my Samsung S9+. For example, if I select documents, it hangs for few seconds and the app crashes. I have uninstalled the updates thrice. And the previous version works perfectly. But this version is very worse, because of the enabled automatic update, new version gets installed and I face the problem again

A passable file manager with limited functionalities compared to its competitors. An example: I just tried to share an apk file to a cloud service. For some reason this is only possible via Wifi-Direct. Why?

moving files seems bugged or whatever. because whenever i move a file the process takes too long and dosen't seem to progress so i have to cancel it just to see it is already moved to another folder

I have a Samsung smartphone and well the app works because it's the same brand,but,I downloaded this app on a Sony Xperia 10 Plus and it Did download,BUT,when you click on the app it won't open,it keeps kicking me out,I know that it works because my friend has the same Sony phone as me and the app works, please fix the app,from all other File apps that I've tried this one is by far THE BEST there is,5 plus 5 more stars if you guys fix it, I'm counting on you...

With the "You're dangerously low on space" notification, you can neither block it nor clear it. Can you please fix that? (btw I posted this in 2019 and I rated it 4 stars, it's a good app except how that notification works.)

When moving files from internal to sd card, app hangs, eventhough the files has been moved. Please fix using sd card that came with my Galaxy S10. Other files app works normally.

Good app, but I'm giving it only 2 stars because it constantly gives a very intrusive pop-up asking me to give it access to my Google Drive, without the option of deny, and then "Don't ask again." This is a privacy violation, and I am loading a Google file organizer to use instead.

This file is intrusive and over powering.I don't like it trying to delete my files and meddle in sorting out such things as photo files.

Internal space is including SD card and other cloud storage info. I cannot exclude such informations and I do not know those info was really including the internal storage calculation or not. Please do something on this issue.

The Samsung My Files on my Tab S4 will not copy files from a usb card reader & sd card. I have a S10+ phone with the My Files app that works just fine copying large photo files from a Canon camera to the phone via card reader and sd card. The Tab S4 will copy only 5 files then stops copying. Both devices are up to date with the latest version of Android Pie. Please advise......JL

The app works well. But i am compelled to install another file manger app to access my Samba Share network. Now a days all homes have Wifi network and all people have a or two Portable HDD with multiple drives in it. So it will be great if you guys can include a network access to this app. So customer don't need yo install a 3rd party file manager apps to access the network drives over the wifi.

When I move files after they're successfully moved the move window will still be showing they're still being moved, I had to use another alternative.

Keeps on crashing whenever i want to check my videos and when i use my flashdrive its response would be "app is not working" how come? Remedy: i installed another kind of file manager aint samsung developed

Please add a feature that can create a txt file to make a small note in the File Manager. Not only create a folder...

NAS function not available ... I have a router with 2 tb harddisk attached to it ... which I cannot access with this file manager ...but this function is available in EMUI and Asus phone

Hi guys, never update this as the developer has amended it to show the advertisement at the bottom of the explorer window. I just updated it and since it is very annoying, I had to uninstall the updates and restored back to original factory version. Such an unethical and unprofessional movement which was never expected from the Samsung developers. Pathetic and cheap act!!

My Google Account is linked to Samsung My Files, but it refuses to display photos from my Google Account and only shows device files.

I Like IT, but one Thing Go improve. It works well with Google drive but not with one drive when you are using your University account

Simple button click accidentally wiped all pics in Camera folder. There is no prompt or way to recover..

Wish there was a feature to access shared folders in a network. My old cheap Asus phone had that out of the box.

Hate the New update. I am not allowed to transfer pictures and videos from my phone's internal hard drive to my SD card. Please get this fixed. Not allowed to free up storage space unless if I delete what I want to save.

Only allows 50 characters in a file name. Loses files from downloads if renamed elsewhere.

Really cool file manager, but I'm missing swipe support when viewing pictures on Google Drive.

A great default file management app that works well with my S10e. No issues so far.

Used to read my SD card... but recently it doesn't ... keeps saying to install SD card meanwhile an SD card is already installed

latest version non-functional. Only folders are shown. The right side of the file viewer does not show the files, instead it's blank. Please fix this.

it was great but now I can't move files. I can select files to move, then I navigate to the required directory but the 'Move Here' button does not become active. please fix so I can sort my files.

Hello Samsung. I have (my files ) app problem.. I have use Samsung j6 phone in my phone I use my files app and in this aap I don't have notification folders! How can I fix it , please help me . Reply me please.

Keeps trying to update. Constantly attempting download blocks all other auto updates until I stop it.

This app is always telling me that my files are too large or need to be deleted and that I'm running out of memory. Which is never true. I wish I could get it completely off my phone! How can I remove this app completely?

It could be easier like telling me how to get my photos to my SD card other than that so far so Good

I cant find where my downloaded music is going it's not in audio or download tab it was working before software update!!!!!!!

Sd card not recognized periodically. Frustrating.

Doesn't give you the option to move to SD card!! Only allows you to move to "secure folder"...this is extremely frustrating!! Please fix this ASAP!

Have no problems with this app. The reason it did not get a 5 is I have not used it for long.

I am unable to delete or move files in the internal or external memory because after update we can't see the option for delete or move. please Fix it as soon as possible

This apk is very good but moving files dosent work every time pleas fix this copy is okey but moving not work! i have galaxy A50

A very good update. The only downside is not being able to put a password on my zipped files. Could you please add password protection option for zipped files?

Only because of limited 15 GB limit and why would this app have a no reply email address as developer contact?

Early on with using the app. I will update as my experience with it grows.

What happend in the newest updated version? "Create new folder " button has gone!

I am unable to move or copy files from one folder to another. That should be some of the basic functionalities.

Why am I getting constantly bombarded by notifications related to transferring files to the SD card?

very, very slow reading relative big folders in Drive. I don't recommend it at all.

Unable to edit or delete files on my phone since last update.

The best file explorer application , i love it works so smooth also looks so nice and clean and simple yet have every option.....
