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.

Organize remote files
Solid Explorer supports major network protocols and cloud providers to let you organize multiple remote file locations in one place. You can easily transfer files between cloud locationsservers just by dragging them from one panel to another.

Major feature list:

• Files management - main storage, SD card, USB OTG
• Cloud storage - easily connect and manage files on Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Owncloud, SugarSync, MediaFire, Yandex, Mega*
• NAS - support for major network protocols FTP, SFTP, SMB (Samba), WebDav
• File encryption - password and fingerprint protection
• Archives - support for ZIP, 7ZIP, RAR and TAR files
• Root explorer - browse system files if your device is rooted
• Indexed search - quickly find files on your device
• Analyze storage - manage files taking too much space on your device
• Organized collections - files categorized in Downloads, Recent,Photos, Videos, Music, Documents and Apps
• Internal image viewer, music player and text editor - for easier browsing on remote storages
• Batch rename - with support for naming patterns
• FTP Server - for accessing your local files from PC
• Themes and icon sets - rich customization options

Solid Explorer will also manage files on your Chromebook with support for mouse and keyboard input.

    I have really relied on this app for a long time. However, since I upgraded to an Android 11 device, it can no longer connect reliably to Dropbox. It logs me on, connects, and works until I close app. Next time, can't log into Dropbox. If I disconnect and reconnect, I can get to Dropbox until the next time. This is a show stopper for me. Too bad.

    pro apk I have been using this for so many years I can't believe I had not reviewed it. Needless to say, having tried many file mangers from the first android phone onwards, this app has consistently performed flawlessly. Connects to all my network pcs, my lan, android tv and the majority of my cloud services. Does need Mega integration. But I use a folder sync for that anyway. Have installed it on multiple androids, from HTC desire to to present note 10+. Never had any issues. Using pro so no ads.

    apk Recently bought this app. Simply amazing 😍 Just add better "Find" functionality in text editor. Also, an in-built Markdown viewer would be great with Table of contents from headings. Also, give option of "analyse storage" like other file managers do. Other than that, the look and feel of the app is great. I just connected my OneDrive and found that this app is even better than OneDrive's offical app. Maybe, can you give option to save some files offline? Keep up the good work 👌🏻🙏🏻

    pro I have been using this app for probably close to a year now. And its been perfect. I just use get to my Truenas server, backup photos etc. Cutting and pasting to my nas is so easy and fast. I have a slight issue where It don't connect to my nas but this happens once in a blue moon and just a retry works everytime. Great app highly recommended! Worth the small in app purchase!

    mod apk I have been using this as my daily go to file manager app across 3 different devices. However, as per recently, I have been having issues uploading any file to my OneDrive (never had an issue before), and this is happening across all devices. Don't know what's going on, but as a paid user, I hope this can be resolved soon, otherwise I might have to look for a new file manager.




    download Ok every thing is great but I got a problem dear developers When I upload a fire to my mediafire account from this app will goes but at a certain point (which is at the last moment 1's) it stops and shows upload failed . And no I didn't have an internet connection problem please try to slove my problem

    pro apk download Copied files (including pictures) from internal and SD card storage to external hard disk using OTG, and all the files now have current date as time stamp. This is horrible, screwed up 3 years worth of picture's timestamp. Any way to preserve timestamps while copying/moving to external hdd?

    price I think developer doesn't care what users say. Performance issue is not resolved as of now.. Issue - After recent update, it is lagging while going in or coming out of any directory.. Some time it won't go to up directory on pressing back button.

    smb I've already bought the app, but with the most recent update it no longer recognizes my purchase. Now it tells me my trial period is over and should buy the app again every time I try to open the app. The only way to get it to work is to completely remove other Google accounts from my phone.

    ios It's useful but it's not exactly user friendly, the desgners need desperately to stop thinking like designer/programmers and hand the design over to someone that understands the User, the should concentrate on software development at which they aeem to be very good, but pretty useless at designing a User interface that's logical and useable without being complex. Let their "smart stuff" happen in the background and make it comfortable for users.

  11. Mel Martin-avatar

    It's been my goto app for years. My one complaint is in dual panel view with one panel internal storage and one panel the sd card they are identified identically in the header as "internal storage" which is confusing and I dont see a way to change it. Otherwise it would be 5 stars.

    Very powerful file manager that also allows you to set up and use various cloud services. The interface is polished and intuitive. Well worth the cost for the full version. I've been using Solid Explorer for years now and it's one of the few apps I install on every new device. Great work developers!

    I was using Mi File Manager as it comes by default but the biggest problem i faced with is it doesn't allow any other video player even had to set as default video player but still the settings were not applying and every video was opening in Mi File Manager that was very hurting experience. I used many File Managers but found Solid Explorer one of the convenient for use. It would be so great to change the folders icons to default folder icons in explorer. I recommend this app for every user.

  14. Jasper-avatar



    Lacks support for SMB3. Automatically playing next file would be a game changer. Verifying checksums from a checksum file would be useful too. Nevertheless, contains almost everything I need from a file manager. Thanks!

    Brilliant app! I used this app initially for the smb access to my pc and the speed is much faster then expected. With the combination of all the other cloud services I can link into I'm onto a winner here.

    Despite its claim of "one purchase, unlimited devices" If you have 2 devices on different accounts but are on your family library you will have to buy the app for each device. This is the only app I have that seems to not support family library. A very bad omission.

  17. M-avatar



    If you select and cut/copy a file you can't navigate to another folder. Unless I'm missing something the menu gets removed for an X. This makes this program completely useless for file management.

    WARNING TO NEW USERS GIVING FIVE STAR REVIEWS: having bought Solid a few weeks ago it is now telling me my trial has ended and that I need to purchase it. I have deleted the data in the Play store app, deleted the app, reinstalled the app... done this a number of times in fact... and it has done nothing. No response from the developers except an automated email telling me to do everything I've done already. Now I have an app that I've paid for that is completely unusable. Not acceptable.

    Long-pressing to select an app/folder & then tapping subsequent app/folders to select multiple doesn't work correctly on some devices. You have to long-press each one instead of just tapping & then it'll select an entire row, also you can't deselect any by tapping. It's annoying & why only some devices? ALSO, the "lockup" problem after switching apps still persists after more than a year, a YEAR! If you leave the app & return occasionally it won't respond to touch, tilting to landscape fixes it

    Im using it for years. Still i havnt the abillity fast multi select files easilly. I remember solid explorer classic, which we was able to select a file by a single tap on its icon. So you can select all the files you need to action them.....only by a single tap on icon just like solid explorer classic must also add to this one. Then ill rate 5 stars...

    Great app, best I've found yet. One feature that I'd love to see is a View Option that combines the compactness of Compact, but with the details of List on the righthand side of the screen. Something like "Downloads" on the left side and in a smaller font on the right side "5 | 27.5 MB | 03/28/2021". List View has a lot of wasted space with two rows of text, padding, and a horizontal line separator for each item, and Compact View doesn't have enough detail for usability.

    Used to be the best file explorer but it has been littered with bugs lately. I'm not sure if it's due to the latest android version which is Android 11 for which it has not been optimized as I do see a lack of updates now because basic tasks such as cutting and pasting within the same directory takes forever or functions such as deleting multiple files can take forever even on ufs 3.1 which doesn't happen on other file explorers and then there are random errors and freezes here and there.

  35. Pat O'Neill-avatar

    Love it. Unfortunately (and fortunately in some cases) android isn't like windows or mac os in the way that it doesn't have these stock ui apps. Like explorer on windows. So, file managers vary from device to device and most of them are just not good enough. One thing that is important to me is basic compressed file support like zip and rar and the ability to merge directories so if I have to update a directory I don't have to do extra painstaking work. It's good guys, def worth 2 bucks. 👍

  36. Iulian Ionescu-avatar

    It has some nice features, but what is more important for me is doing poorly. It loses connection with local ftp server, doesn't load pictures and video thumbnails from that server, it can't play videos from it (it doesn't seem to have a video player). There are free file managers that can do all these without problems.

  37. Robert Stubbs-avatar

    Robert Stubbs


    Usually my go to file explorer but something changed recently. It can now take up to 10-15 seconds to load the contents of a folder (browsing forward & back). Turning off thumbnail preview helps a fraction but not enough to make it worthwhile. None of my other file explorers have this problem.

    I've been using FX File Explorer for a few years, and thought it was pretty good until I came across problems with things that used to work, so I tried to ask the developers about them. I didn't get any response at all for that or some future problems, so I went looking for a replacement. I came across this app on Reddit, and I had heard of it before, so I decided to try it out. Only took me a few minutes to have everything working that I needed and it was easier to accomplish than doing it with FX which I've used for years. Plus, it has an sftp server for transferring files easily. I had some problems with my music app that wouldn't read a few song file tags, and this app read them perfectly, alowing me to quickly determine that I needed a new music player, too. Poweramp player to the rescue there.

  42. orrinjonesdev-avatar



    Think I've been using this for about 3 years. Has everything you need: ftp, drag n drop support, fast file loading, in-app file openers like text editor, video and music player. It's the real deal and you get to use it for two weeks free! Then after that it's only a $1.99 forever. Unlimited devices if you need a file browser this is it.

    Fantastic file app. I've been using on several phones and tablets since 2016. I love the ftp feature for sharing files with a PC. It's so, so easy. Even works over tethered WiFi. Something happened in early 2021 where they changed how to purchase the app and it put me back on a trial version. Hopefully this will help others with a problem restoring their purchase: I cleared Cache and Data for Play Store and Solid Explorer and it recognised my purchase again. Very happy :)

  45. Tyson Gauthier-avatar

    Tyson Gauthier


    So glad I discovered this app. It is very intuitive and straightforward, the fact they let you use for free for two weeks really says something. I tried many, many other apps that claimed to have the same abilities. Guess what? I came back to this app and purchased it because it is just that much easier, better, faster, feature rich. I definitely recommend this app!

    I have been using Solid Explorer's no Ads version on my mobile for the past 1 year, it's the best one out there. However, I am not able to access the ad free version on my android TV, while being logged in with the same account. Update: Managed to make multiple devices work. Steps followed were: 1. Delete Cache and Data of any previous installed version of Solid Explorer from the new Device. 2. Uninstall the app. 3. Open working device with unlocked version of application, go to about and click on restore purchases. 4. Make sure to install the app on the new device from the account which has purchased the application. 5. Upon opening the app, you will get a 'Thank You for Purchasing' message.

    I love this app. One thing which is bothering me though, is that I just bought a new sony android tv, and when you purchase this app, it's supposed to be available for all your devices. It's now saying Im in the trial version and will need to purchase again??? Not happy about this.

  48. Terry Nguyen-avatar

    This is my current top pick for anyone looking for a very robust and fully featured File Manager on Android. The biggest thing for me is two pane view, which is key for easily moving files around (or working with other storage solutions, like FTP servers or SMB2 shares). Additionally, the actual file browser itself is very capable and configurable, allowing you to save certain view and sorting behaviors for certain folders. Would always recommend and support this app.

    Already purchased pro version of the app 6 months or an year before, now it started showing me advertisements I don't know why and again purchase options. I am not a technical person I don't understand the procedure they mentioned in "Already Purchased" section. They should have record that person with specific Google ID has done the purchase so why I am getting ads here..? please reply if possible.

    Already purchased but now showing ads And the ads shown was playing full screen, with sound, back button not working. The ad was of an app in which there was a girl stripping herself. The only way to get that horror out of the screen was to press the home button quick. Utter nonsense. Uninstalled.

    Solid Explorer is the best file manager I have found. I evaluated it for 2 weeks before buying the full version and it works flawlessly for me. I use a Synology NAS to store most of my files. Setting access to these in SE was simple. Bookmarks are fantastic for quick access to often used folders. Dual pane for move/copy functions is great. Chromecast integration is very welcome also. Nice app interface and customizable. I would 100% recommend this app. I love it.

    I bought the app for its FTP feature and it is great. However, I cant seem to make it select rhe entire SD card the same way it selects Internal storage. Instead I have to select individual folders within the SD card when I want to transfer files. I wish someone would contact me about this so we can hace the sam options for the SD card as we do for Internal storage.

    Good. But saving a text file over SFTP after editing it on my local tablet results in some duplicate texts at the end of the file. For a long while I blamed my text editor, but SE Text Editor results in the same issue. The same scenario for another file manager + my preferred text editor result in correct text file being saved.

    The app is good. But there are some minor setbacks for example, I can't open a file directly from my OTG device (ie. flash drive). It works well on mi file manager at least opening a music or video file does but none of that seems to work on this app, then there is the issue of not being able to select a file with one tap it's very frustrating, why must one hold a file for some seconds before selecting it? ....why not at least create like a selection box to help tick the files more faster.

    This is a great app. I think I might switch from mixplorer to this one. It can actually copy files into the root/system folder on rooted phones, mixplorer can't (on my phone). But it's 4 stars because the individual folder sorting doesn't work. When I sort my downloads folder to date and check the this folder only box it sorts the other folders that way too. Or if it does sort when I close the app and reopen it it goes back to default sorting.

    The app is well designed but the search function has problems. it doesnt always work when i know i have a lot of that phrase in folder but the results are empty. UPDATE: when you search after a search result is shown, you're only searching in the results not the main folder so you have to go back to folder and touch search again

    I wanted an app to connect to my NAS on the occasion I wanted access on my phone. I open the app today and was told my "14 day" trial had expired and I have to pay £2.50, I never knowingly started a trial and have had the app installed for 6 months and have used it a few times during that time. Now I can no longer use any features of the app, it only shows the prompt to buy the full version. I don't see anything about a trial mentioned in the description considering the app is free to download.

    I love this file explorer! Its dueling panels make copies and transfers so easy. Solid Explorer is among Androids' best kept secrets. Try it on a day when you have some work to do in your storage and you'll see, its arguably the best, most intuitive and user-friendly file apps ever made.

My girl and I almost had a SOLID unintentional set of fear-induced accidents. We're talking scared for real at 7 in the morning trying to not wake anyone else up. Thanks for that. I need a promo code or something for the SOLID three or so years that scare whittled off my life expectancy... But yeah, solid app though, in all seriousness. Bump my mixtape by the way

    An absolutely excellent tool. Logs into various cloud providers, includes a user space FTP server and will also run as root of you are rooted. Sleek and functional. It's a no scam, premium app experience that doesn't fill the UI with silly nonsense that impedes you getting your objective done.

    This is the best file manager ever. I think UI is really simple and easy to get used to. It is simple yet really powerful file manager because it supports all the features like cloud and ftp if you need it. Worth the money if you ask me because it is also really cheap. Great work devs. Congrats.. 👏👏

    Best file explorer on play store. And is worth the 30rs. U can also use it as a root explorer, and also as a system app uninstaller without always entering root directory. even the ui is very good. But free version just has lot of ads. But u should buy the the paid version. Its definitely worth it

  71. GREAT BANJARA-avatar



    Purchased full version but it showing ads now already purchased option not working whats the maintainence..

    Just wow! I didn't really need the paid features but I still bought the pro, to support the developer. Yup, I liked the app that much! Everything is so seamless. There used to be an issue with searching but now it's fixed and search is quite fast. Love the app.

    Best ES file manager I have tried! Tried several apps to back up my phone pics and videos to USB pen, and this was the only one that worked properly and easily. I upgraded to the full version after using the trial one for 10 minutes. Great value, highly recommended!

  76. GalaxyWareX-avatar



    Good User Interface especially how it looks and it was different from other file explorers, it was better on the Solid Explorer. The experience of using the system was great. The system was easy to use!

    It has become extremely slow recently. After opening the app, screen freezes for more than a minute and changing folders is also really slow. Don't know if this has to do anything with A11 update.

    I first used Solid Explorer Classic. I never discovered a better file explorer, and most smartphone manufacturers have really simple file managers preloaded, so you just have to replace them with a real one such as the Solid Explorer. Finally I switched from SE Classic to this new version (it appeared that the Classic version might have lost functionality on newer Android versions). This one, again, delivers perfect functionality (sftp file access and more).

    This is the best file manager available in playstore, Lot of colors, themes, icon packs, easy to browse files, everything is nice. The only request is can you create an interface to display memory card and internal storage options on home page, rather sliding from left side. Thank you

    Good app, but with Android gestures copying files is painful, can't get back to storage list. Developers, you really need to fix this, makes copying impossible.

    Wow bugs... You long-press to select a file/folder and then tap each subsequent file/folder to add it to the selection, however I have to long-press each one otherwise it attempts to open it....and it selects an entire row randomly. There are many bugs not being addressed which is sad since people pay for this app.

    Solves all the problems I was having with the Files by Google file manager. Seems much more intuitive to me. The big pluses for me so far are access to scoped storage areas for apps, bookmarks, shortcuts, a text editor.

    Good interface but I purchased this explore for sole purpose of copying my files from local network to my android phone but soon after 1 update I was unable to move/copy files from local smb server to my android it is the only reason to give 1 star... kindly fix or make it easy to copy/move files from local servers to the mobile device

    "v2.8.9 - use root to access /Android/data on external storage" Why do I need to root my device to be able to get to the android data folder on my SD card? The app called ZArchiver does this without the need to root... Also they fixed this a month ago in 1 update while you guys after 5 updates still don't have it fixed..... (tab s7+ android 11)

    It has a serious bug copying over existing larger files on sdcard (portable storage). It keep the old larger file length, and after that the updated file is corrupted. Reported the bug to the developer, but got no response. This bug is still present on the Feb 6, 2021 update...

    Keeps telling me that I need to buy license even though I already did and have been using this app for years. I followed the suggestions and it worked on my phone but not on Android TV. It's just frustrating that you can't depend on the app.

  90. Iamfake-avatar



    Bug report- When copying files to sdcard (more than 3gb) and if screen goes off, I'm unable to wakeup screen by tapping on screen or power button, needs to force restart device by pressing power button. Device - Poco F1, MIUI and everything is stock with MIUI optimizations turned off

    Still no response from developer. Came to like this. However, unable to purchase for my wife's devices. Both get the error - Sorry something went wrong at our end. Please try again. Dev has not responded to email. Nice if that worked and better if this was eligible for family use.

    Congratulations guys you finally made it from being an ad free application to be one among throwing ads even on purchased version. Please fix the ad issue as some of us are expecting a good file manager with versatile facilities but this ad thing will depreciate us and we'll switch to some other application so please try to fix this ad thing as soon as possible

    Bought the app a year or so ago I got the premium now it's saying trial has expired I've been using it everyday for the entire time and a week ago it hasn't let me use it since and I can't restore the purchase I used this after ES file explorer was taken down I can't use it until this problem gets fixed I'm sorry

  101. core-avatar



    Good . Love this app. If you all hate ads then buy it. Very worth it Because they still update the app. Unlike other app, I bought pro version, they never update pro version. Only free version they update, and so much ads. Then i found this app very good and very usefull

    IT'S OK. But like most of its competitors it will not format a disk let alone remake one. Nor will it give the simple information of capacity or occupied space in bytes. So managing disks is impossible.

    Installed after finding numerous really good reviews for this software. I find it slow, and refuses to do what I ask. First file manager I have ever seen delete via some queue that it is the operation in. Can't find the queue or evidence is working. Waiting 15 minutes for nothing to happen. Changed file explorer and did the same request, and got instant gratification. If worked. So in summary, I wouldn't recommend this product because it does not appear to work.

  107. Odder-avatar



    works well Edit: Well, not anymore. Whenever i try and open a video on the web, it opens Solid Explorer's chromecast extention. Had to remove app after clearing cache + defaults didnt work for it.

    I would have given 5star but there is 1issue for which I bought the premium version but that issue still comes the issue I am talking about is whenever I delete bulk files from 1folder and moves to next folder to clear its some files the app crashes and then I have to re-start the app that irritates me so please look into this issue

    They still haven't fixed the horrible SMB speeds. I get less than 1MB/s and sometimes 2MB/s on SMB1 and 2 while every other file managers can get 5MB/s. I switched to Cx just because of this.

    Use this app on my chromebook, beats the built in file app by a mile. Connects to network shares easily which is something the built in file app can't do. Recommended

    So many ads! I get that ads help developers make money. But there are just far too many. I'd suggest tone it down. Ads for in game rewards (like shuffle) make sense. But an ad every game? The worst is the forced click: it opens a web page on open sometimes to try and get you to install another game!! Not to mentio that the game is actually rather laggy at times - I genuinely think it's because its trying to load an ad...

    Dropped rating from 5 star to 1. The app takes like 15 seconds to load anything, even if I tap on recent downloads. Takes 20 sec to navigate inside the app. There's loading screen for everything I tap on. It was so good fee weeks back I don't know what happened suddenly.

    Best file explorer app I've ever come across. Definitely worth it! One aesthetic thing that would make this 5 stars is more fine grain control for colours (i.e. hex colour code options for the main/accent colours of the app).

  123. Newel-avatar



    You can easily back up data from and transfer data to /Android/data on Android 11 with Solid Explorer. You can also back up APKs on non-rooted devices. Essential.

    Why does a simple file explorer have ads and forces you to buy it to get rid of said ads my built-in file explorer is better than this one. Only reason I tried this was because I installed it on my chromecast with google tv and seen it had a trial period. So I checked it out on my Note 20 Ultra and same thing as I thought it was because the chromecast wasn't a normal Android phone or tablet but no same thing there.
