Cache deletion interupted random error. This app used to work great two or three updates ago it started giving these random errors. Now it's pretty much useless. Used to be you could clear old files each time the app was started now it decides on its own when to give you that option.

Can't create folder in Android/data folder. Folder created by connecting the device to computer then it is not visible in device. It seems that Google don't want to give permission for user. It isn't user friendly.

Best app for storage issues. Past 3 months or 6 months option not available for deleting images of WhatsApp. Still best efforts.

Could have been a 4 or 5 star but one glaring flaw is the file transfer. Finally got it to work. But only after wasting time fiddling with it. Had to go to Settings/Apps/Files by Google then add BOTH tablet and phone to give permission to phone BEFORE file transfer worked. Pathetic by Google. This should have been an automated process. Just basic. Thus the 1 star. Fix it!

This app is not that bad but the interface is just so boring. The worst thing is, the sort option doesn't work on folders but only on the files. So it is very annoying if have to search for a large file on my phone and not see it directly. I can't even uninstall this app because this is the preinstalled file manager on my phone. Hope you read this.
