    #1File Manager

    File Manager
    File Manager helps you handle your files whether they are stored in your device's memory, SD card, local area network, and cloud storage account. It allows you to copy, move, rename, delete or share files to and from any of your storages.

    "This app is very user friendly and reminds me of using windows 7. If it is an image or video it has a thumbnail, all other files have icons. Storage Analysis is a good feature as it lets you know which directories are taking the most storage. Storage Analysis also displays the total amount and available amount of storage on the device as well as the SD card"
