    This app wasn't too bad for a samsung design rebrand of the linux (android) embedded original applet. In fact it was fairly close to file explorer even in looks and user interface. Untill the jacked up cloud system messed it all up just to upsell usage of samsung accounts and samsung cloud. Then totally killed themselves joining the OneDrive wagon. I'll stick with my free gran daddy 15gb google drive cloud. Sorry samsung to sound harsh. But up the effort level to take over android, or don't try.

    4pda The only reason I am giving this app 4 stars is because when you edit the name of the file, it does not permanently edit the metadata of the file. I search for songs by title and if I use a secondary app for music, I can never find the correct song titles. Thia may be a legal issue, but it seems like something Samsung should have figured out by now.

    apk I've had an SD card in my phone forever. It's really just common sense to have one. This app doesn't see the card ever. In general this app is better than Goggles version. But if i can't see the obvious card why would i use it? I've written in to Samsung a couple times and got no answers. I wish it worked. I love that the email address listed here is a no reply email. That's super helpful! It's definitely not Samsung's apps that keep them in business.

    app "Can't connect. Make sure the adress and other info is correct, then try again" Wow , great generic error message when trying to connect to a network storage, who need to know why it failed, right?

    apk mirror it's very clean & user friendly but it needs many improvements. please add an option to set related app icons to the folders for easier access. also we need this feature in the directory /Android/data too! ES File Explorer is died but please see it's great features & add some of them into it. thanks.

    old version Adware/malware like spam inside of the app. The app. is asking me to use Microsoft OneDrive again and again. I have selected that I do not want to use it 30 times by now. It also keeps adding Samsung Cloud in the menu when I selected that I do not want it.

    network storage This app does not work. I have numerous downloaded files on my Samsung tablet, but according to this app I have nothing on my tablet. I'm unable to access any files through this app. I have to use other apps, such as photos or Adobe Acrobat, to find my files, and those apps are severely limited in the files they can search for and view.

    For being the Default File Manager App for Samsung, this is a Very Poor File Manager & Samsung should rethink their choice. There are many File Types the App cannot associate to a Program. Even after repeated downloads of the proper App from the Play Store. Like .odt files & Collabra Office Suite. There needs to be a way to Change, Find or Direct the My Files App to the correct Handler App. The built in OPEN WITH FUNCTION does not include all installed Apps. Dev. Contact info is also needed.

    Best file manager for me. I can create folders, move files and/or videos into respective folders I've created. I can transfer to and from all the different storage, it's just like I using my laptop, even helps analyze my storage for duplcate files & photos, apps that haven't been used in awhile or not a all. Very easy app to navigate and manage. ๐Ÿ‘โญโญโญโญโญ

    In your infinite wisdom you didn't give a system application the proper permissions to function with scoped storage. You've left people with a Samsung file manager that is incapable of actually accessing all of the files on their Samsung device. Excellent work. Smh

    Guys please show the space left instead of space used. That's way more practical. Or give an option toggle that to appear. Another fault is the inability to add more than 50 characters๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ even most media players allow that these days. The search option can also be vastly improved by giving an option to search a specific file in the currently opened folder instead of the whole phone. A lot less searching time required in that case. These are the problems that I have with the app

    From some time now the app doesn't show other app files saved in internal storage. It presents overall properties of internal storage, i.e.: used and unused storage, folders, and so on. But it cannot show the folders content, displaying an empty space inside... meanwhile they have content (they have to, as I have downloaded lots of things to them) ! Please, fix it urgently !

    If I carry out a search within a subdirectory, then I'm probably only interested in files within that subdirectory structure, not the whole tablet and SD card. Plus it freezes for 10 secs EVERY time I try to use it. My Files is as amateurish as the Samsung Browser. Samsung - great hardware that is ruined by abysmal software. Its Pixel from now on for me.

  82. Nito-avatar



    The Android/data folder that stores application files no longer shows them, therefore making it unable to modify certain configurations or see stored files in said folders, even when the 'Show hidden system files' option is turned on, which is a problem for certain applications. Previously My Files used to be able to do this and now I have had to switch to another file browser for this reason.

    From unzipping 7Zs and RARs, to managing basic files, Samsung My Files works very well. I can do everything I want and more all with ease of use. My only issue is that the trash function that stores deleted files never deletes any of its contents, so I had two years and gigabytes worth of trash files sitting in there wasting my phone's space without my knowledge. Please add an option to auto delete all contents after a period of time!!!

    Moving files is not intuitive. The auto-organisation of files is also confusing. I have files in Download that I want to move to Documents but those Download files already appear. Why does the files have to be linked to each catergory like this? Or have they been duplicated? It is confusing to tell where the files actually are if I don't know beforehand.

    It needs updating. Last was 2019. Google updates almost daily, not that I like that. Samsung sold me this phone, not google. Samsung needs to stop letting Google Service App override setting the owner turns off, like body sensors. Next phone will be an apple. You are ALL forgetting that your customers pay your salaries.

    I'd give this app MINUS FIVE STARS if I could. Recently Samsung had a firmware revision and it made the My Files inoperative unless I give Samsung the right to do anything they want to files on this tablet AND ANY CONNECTED MEMORY DEVICES! I spent close to $1,000 on this S-6 tablet but because of what was done with My Files and the default photo app Samsung has seen the last cent from me. I never owned a computer from a company that with every software revision took useful features away.

    The new update ruins this app! Updating the system to 'One ui 3' means a very useful characteristic of 'My Files' is gone :( You can no longer change the size of the preview-icons of the files by zooming with your fingers. Now it's a fixed size, unchangeable. Very annoying! Also, you can apply a filter on a photo just once, not numerous times, as you could before this update. Worst update ever. This was a very good app, now it's rubbish.

    The level safe file is to hard you need to pay 100 bucks to even deal 1 percent damage. Also the boss is to OP it one shots you and you lost and need to start all over again and pay again. Bad app. Only If you spend 1000 bucks on it you might win because then you can rebirth and deal 1000000000% more damage but that is 10% of all the health ab d he one shots you so don't spend money on this pay to win game. It sucks. Don't recommend

    I use to love this app, but after the last update they messed it up really bad. The FTP and Samba features are not working. But my biggest problem is that Samsung removed the possibility to add folders to the first screen of the app, I like to open the app and for the folders that I use all the time just to be there. Good job in ruining this app.

    I really dislike being told what folder names I have to have. I prefer brevity! Having to constantly delete unwanted EMPTY ones irritates immensely! A tick list of suggested names would be better and of more use, but only as a settings option. I play no music. I personalize my photo groups. I watch no podcasts etc. I can also really use a bulk FILETYPE rename/delete FUNCTION for the other end of filenames when I need to move/delete types of files. Management tools would be a plus for this app!

    I like that this exists because without it I wouldn't even know how to find documents and files on my phone. I'm a PC guy and like to be able to access system files and have folders and what not so this file manager is extremely helpful. Only 4 stars because it can be confusing to navigate. I think an improvement would be to create a more interactive method of navigating files and folders that's faster, easier to know where you need to look, and easier to comb through large numbers of files.

    Lowering star count to one, as my earlier attempt to describe a problem I was having with this particular software was deleted. The notifications from OneDrive (which isnt even installed on my device) have made managing my phone's storage through this app impossible. Though I have always appreciated the My Files app before this, the deletion of a previous rating was something I cannot overlook.

    The original came preloaded and worked just as it should. There was this update however and even when working as it should it doesn't have an option to remove "Samsung cloud" from the cloud storage options even when Samsung isn't providing this functionality anymore so it would be nice yo have the option to remove this one from the "used" clouds that show up when opening the app. 2* star off till that becomes possible.

    This app can detect my network storage and it detects my home pc AS network storage. It has a command under network storage called "sync" but there is no configuration for sync. There is also no help file for it. The in person chat help is useless because they have no idea that they are helping for an app called "My Files" that has a command in it called "Sync". Since Samsung wrote out the permissions for my old syncing software I expect them to replace it with at LEAST something more than a pl

    Unfortunately I cannot give this a full good review as the new feature that they introduced, storage over network does not support SMB version 1 which is installed on MOST CURRENT ROUTERS. I don't understand why they will not simply give an option that the CUSTOMER can choose to enable SMB v1? I understand it may be a security risk, but that is up to the customer to decide on how to use their software, not how the software should dictate.

    I can no more access/view or even move/copy files on the Data or OBB of my Internal Storage or that of my Sd Card with the new update of Android 11 on my phone ! This is very disappointing as before, the app didn't have any restrictions but now i must use 3rd party apps to have full control on my files. I am very disappointed on you Samsung as i used to love this app because of the accessibility it procured but now it is no more :( Therefore that is the reason why i rated you 1 star.

    Garbage update. Now when I edit a photo it replaces the original instead of making a new saved image and keeping the old. That's terrible. Supposedly this can't be changed in settings but I can't find it. This is reduced functionality and makes the use of the app pointless for me now. Switching to another app and leaving this. Terrible move, Samsung.

    - organising photos by renaming - No simple, efficient way to rename photo files found via Search tool. Used to do it by viewing the image, then swipe up and EDIT) Now I have to go back to the directory, try finding the file again, press HOLD , More... , Rename ETC. I want a simple, direct route to edit the filename again . PLEASE!

    This app is the worst thing that unfortunately I can't remove from my phone and it erased photos that were on my SD card! I had moved those pictures to my SD card for safe keeping and now because of THIS app, I won't ever be able to get those pictures back!!!! Why is this app literally forced on people because it can't be uninstalled completely. Make it so we the consumer have the CHOICE to REMOVE it. And I actually give it 0 stars or negative stars if I could!

    For a free app on my Samsung phone (that I absolutely despise all the other Samsung Bloatware on) AND (that I can't remove), this app is actually a halfway decent file manager. Better than most of the other ones I downloaded off the Play Store that were touted as top in most reviews, trying to find one to take its place, I ended up using this one more than any other besides Mix, which is a no brainer.... I'm glad that all of Samsung bloatware isn't complete junk!!!

    I LOVE THIS APP people always install 3rd party file managers but this is fine 95% of the time but they may have spyware like es file explorer WHY DO PEOPLE TELL ME TO INSTALL THAT MALWARE!?!?!?!? DO THEY WORK AT ES FILE EXPLORER!?!?!?!?!?!? it can read from usb and sd fine the only problem is... for some users... that you are stuck in storage/emulated/0 so if you wanted to go to storage/sdcard you cant or go to root or whatever its over simplified but it's ok you dont need to know

    The photo editor in the My Files app was already mediocre before the new update but now it's just garbage. The editor is so pathetic that it literally can't even crop a photo to 1:1 evenly, as it's constantly off by a pixel on one side. Another obnoxious feature the new update brings is that if you want to save your edited photo as a new copy, you have to go the drop down menu to do so, as opposed to just hitting save, as has been the case for YEARS, now getting a pop warning every time instead.

    My Files no longer executes on my Samsung S6 tablet when I try to attach photos to another app (email, FB, etc.). The error message is not helpful. My Files is the only file manager app that displays as an option, despite other, now, newly- downloaded and installed file manager apps available for use by other apps on my tablet. My Files cannot be uninstalled. This makes my tablet almost useless for information sharing.

    Why it needs to access 'phone' is beyond my comprehension as to what the relationship is between 'files' and 'phone'? Eg; why does it need to access 'phone' in order to work? There is no way to disable it from accessing my phone, Samsung have this blocked. Can't uninstall, blocked too. Nothing. Bs. Far q then, it's all u let me do, besides rooting and removing. Is that what I'm expected to do?

    A big "thankyou" for fixing gallery/download glitch so soon, after updating!... I appreciate that I can save downloads from apps (such as Facebk) and have it in my Gallery with the relevant info right there, together. B4, it was frustrating to connect any screenshots to downloaded images (prev. kept separate). So now, having them altogether makes all the difference.

    If I could, it would be 2 and a half stars. Terrible app. It does not allow you to update it even when a new version is out, it does not read sd cards and is so messy! The only reason it is not 1 star is because it can, if organised, help out a bit. If possible do not use find an alternative.

    need a lot of work to improve and find out where the files are. For example you cannot find DCIM files we should have pictures but they don't. Also automatically take all social media files and put them on your SD card if you choose to automatically in a separate folder so you can delete when required and it doesn't proliferate through your system to Google photos and the like

    Perfect for a lot of things such as compressing i absolutely love using .7z for compressing and easy decompressing as its very useful for saving storage on files you haven't jsed in a while Also to those saying its bloatware when all it does is help organize your dowloads, finding apks, saving storage, especially when you eventually need it sooner or later for something for a pre-installed app thats just as good if not better.For it to be bloatware you have to be looking for things to be mad at

    Easiest way to find my files on my Samsung for sure




    Old version was good but in new. I had tried to make new folder in android >data> then error shows folder name already used but no file or folder im there if i changed folder name then error shows operation failed. It also happens in secure folder

  118. AnarchKing-avatar



    Would be the only file manager I used if it would recognize Acode the app as a file text editor, that way I didn't have to switch apps everytime or open the file through the code editor itself. It's just extra steps and if I could find something to get rid of those I would jump on it

    A great App that sings a song. SAMSUNG My Files isn't joking. It enables my files to belong to Samsung. More bloatware that cannot be removed. Also, it reflects poorly when there are spelling errors in the description. Thank you, Samsung. This is both beautiful, delicious, seditious and nutritious. I would eat here again. 0.0000000002 out of 5 stars. PS Did I suggest the option to permanently remove programs like this.

    Network storage access with SMB still has bug and not working. RS File app connects just fine to NAS via SMB. SMBv2 is enabled on Synology NAS. The Jan update broke it by introducing a bug. I've tested this on a S10+ and Note10+ one on Android 10 and other on 11 both get the same error message and factory phones. The latest version has a bug. Contacted samsung via chat phone and email to no avail. Shame samsung pay attention!!

    This application is marking files as duplicate even though they clearly are not. Videos and pictures that I have taken with my mobile device are marked as duplicate simply because they're the same size even though the file name is different and created at different times or even dates. And there's no way to undo the inaccurate duplication notation made by this product๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Žโš ๏ธ

    Half step forward fifteen steps back. WHY must it take FIVE DISTINCT TAPS to change the sort order? Was a time tapping on the top of the column would sort by that column. Now it takes tapping FIVE TIMES all over the screen to change from Name/Ascending to Date/Descending. How freaking stupid can this get?

    FOR THE S7 TABLET Worst app!! I cannot upload files anymore from this manager, it keeps crashing, I cannot deinstall it and cannot send attachments in emails!! Now I have to figure via a root manager how to scrape it off my tablet, what a nightmare!! And it does not allow other file managers to run parallel, it always intervenes. SAMSUNG please update!!

    Normally 5 stars and would be now (using since S7) but when installed on my new S20 Nt Ult any created homescreen shortcut (widget) to a subfolder goes gray after using it (i.e. viewing an image with Gallery Pro). It works once then goes gray - says file or folder has been deleted. It has not, I can go into my files and see it. Nothing happened to it. Tried, reboot, remount SD, clear data, and clear cache, have latest update. Is my files still the stock file mgr for Samsung? Main shortcut wrks.

    Good file manager. But one thing many of us hate is that, the recent files which have been added now into the device aren't shown. Instead it shows files recently opened. This is provocative. Please help fix this problem and allow the app to show all file formats and types on the home page

    For 5 stars, add network storage to this app like we just got on s10+ 2 years and still no network storage. I'm still using file manager by Asus. More functionality than this one. At least let us Uninstall useless apps so we can use others.

    Since last update it says "SD card contains no files" but only when I click on an empty file within my SD card files. Although my SD card contains over 20GBs and my music and pictures still show up within the SD card files unless when I click on an empty file that's when it'll give me the false message

    Love the app except there needs to be an app notification for unmounting OTG storage devices. I found an app that quick links me to the phone setting but having it be part of the file manager app would be preferred.
