However, there are those free file manager which have all the features like the paid one too. In addition, they are ads free.

OI File Manager

Well, here are all the best top free Android File Manager with no ads for you. Which one do you prefer?


  1. Most Windows options work by using the either the Command or the Function key n MAC Versions. In moving Columns for instance, hold down the COMMAND key until the hand’ symbol appears then move the column ot the desired location and press enter (Return) Worked for me in 2011. Try it. Good lunc.

  2. Es explorer has ads, and so does file expert, unless you pay. ES Explorer doesn’t offer a no ads version unfortunately, and offers more plugins for itself. I hate ads. File Expert cannot copy or move files from and to network locations as it doesn’t have proper navigation options (max 3 tabs and no sub folder options). Still no functional options available for smb file sharing operations without more irritating ads. Please post where a guy can find a program that can be trusted as functional. Android is so stupid without this basic functionality.

  3. 3c toolbox was always there for me, never bothered to use it till now. It has a fully functional explorer, supports everything I need plus does a whole lot more. Even managed to remove another malicious installation with 3C Toolbox which installed itself in a manner which was uninstallable by the default android app manager. Please give this program a try. No ads either!
