    Default Best file manager?

    There are a great many file managers available for android, and new ones appear frequently. For instance, a real innovative one (with drag-and-drop, continuous zoom in all view, advanced multi-touch support and much more unique features) is

    I use Astro, but since it doesn't let you delete files, can it actually be called a file manager?

    i like estrong, but i have yet to find one that would allow me to "copy all" or "move all" to another directory - more specifically, - moving ringtones from the sdcard to \system\media\ringtone
    I realize that both astro & estrong offer this ability, just have not been able to get it to work

    which one have you found that does this simply

    In ScaliCommander, simply browse in one pane to the folder where you want to copy/move all items from, choose "multiselect" from the menu, then long-press the header, from the appearing context-menu, choose "select all", then browse in the second pane to the destination and use drag-and-drop.

    But writing to \system\media\ringtone might not work because of missing permission from the Android-system. You have to "root" your phone for that.

    Root explorer can do this. It's my preferred file manager.

    Estrong all the way.

    Here is why:
    - The ability to scan your wifi (without entering tons of configurations) for networked PCs and log into these PCs to move files from/to your Android device is priceless
    - They have a Root explorer option (still in beta)
    - Dev is super fast in responding (Dropbox issue got fixed in a day)
    - Looks a lot better than the rest (IMHO)
    - Maps your SD card to see what folder takes how much space
    - Bookmark any file and place it on the homescreen
    - FTP server access
    - Bluetooth file transfer
    - and tons of little "standard" features (batch operations, zip/unzip, etc...)

    Estrongs does the job for me. Used to have Astro installed a while back and it was good as well.

    Astro seems a bit awkward for me after using it for a few months.
    I mean, is it so hard to copy and paste without having to go through a few commands?
