The Files Go Beta app by Google has been an extremely simple file manager, with the focus being on cleaning unused files and junk to free up space. With version 1.0.219550556 some very useful additions came in that will benefit Android users with devices supporting microSD cards.
Improvements to file management:
- See all storage devices and browse full file system
- Move files to SD card
- Create new folders, move or copy files
You can now manage files on SD cards and USB sticks with the latest version of Files Go Beta, compared to earlier versions where writing on an external storage device was impossible. To see all of the connected storage drives to your Android device, go to the 'Browse' tab from the bottom bar and tap on the three-dot menu. From there select 'Show storage devices' and after that, at the bottom of the page, you will get to see them and browse inside.
Moreover, now there are options to create new folders and move or copy files from one storage device to another and on the same device too. To do these, just long-press on a folder or a file, or select multiple ones, hit the three-dot menu and choose 'Move to', or 'Copy to'. Then, browse the storage device you want and at the top of every page, you will see an 'Add new folder option', while the 'Copy here' and 'Move here' buttons will be at the bottom center.
Looks like we got some pretty much long-awaited features finally knocking on our doors. Thanks, Google for listening!
