exploring the memory
« on: November 07, 2012, 01:32:44 AM »
hello,
im relativity new to my nexus 7 and by no mean an expert with computers etc but im not exactly clueless.

anyway the question i would like to put to everyone is, can i gain access to the internal memory (i believe its called /storage/SDcard) id like to explore/delete/move items on it, now i do not have a computer to use other wise i would just connect it to it obviously. is there a way to get on to it via the device itself?

i can view what is on /storage/SDcard via the file scanner function on AVG anti-virus, so i believe its possible but just not sure how???

my device is not rooted or anything its completely standard.

any help is much appreciated
kris.

If you don't have a computer, what will you move files to/from?

The sdcard is soldered to the motherboard,  so you can't remove it.

Can you not hitch a lift on a pc/laptop, it is then easy to access via the pc/laptop selecting the N& from "Computer".

Connection is via the IUSB cable supplied with the Nexus.

Download Astro File Manager at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.metago.astro or ES File Explorer at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.estrongs.android.pop, with either free app,  you will then be able to view and manage files, note system files are write protected and cannot be changed unless you are rooted.

Solid explorer is dual pane, makes it easier to move files from say downloads to music folder. Or sub folders on computer to tablet over network.

Likewise, X-plore is dual pane and I agree that using a dual pane "memory" explorer is much easier and intuitive vs the other apps mentioned, which I also have used.

Try several and decide on which you prefer - no reason why you cannot use 2 for different purposes either, but my goto directory manager is X-plore.
