how can I delete a file without a file manager
(fyi I have a Nexus 7 NOT rooted)
I find it staggering that there is no file manager on this device. I need to delete a file but cannot access it to delete it.
I had transferred an mp4 from my Dropbox cloud to the "movies" folder on the internal SD on the Nexus 7. When I open the "movies" app on the homescreen the mp4 doesnt display (thanks to the Nexus 7's astonishingly limited compatibility with movie files)... so I just want to delete the mp4 but there is no way I can get to it.
It has definitely copied accross to movies because if I attempt to copy the same file across it asks me if I want to replace the existing file.
I've downloaded Astro file manager. Astro sees it in the movies folder but there is no option to delete! In fact Astro doesnt allow me to do anything at all, apart from view the files on the device. hardly a file manager.
How can I remove this file? I'm so disapointed with this device it feels completely half-finished!
