    Need some advice we have with working with an external hdd.
    I've got it working with ES file Explorer I can see the external drive and open files with it but when it comes to saving files that's a bigger issue.

    Word doesn't see the drive, and when I try to copy a file across it comes up with saying this is an unsupported action this also happens with trying to move a file any advice please.

    Also my files won't see the drive to
    Thanks for any help

    What format is the drive in? If it's NTFS you likely can't write to that from your tablet. You'll need it to be FAT32.

    Also - I avoid ES File Explorer. I used to use that but moved to Solid Explorer when ES started to bring unwanted add-ons.

    exFAT works with most Android devices and allows larger file sizes than FAT32.
