Thanks for the reminder (out of officail TYs). Sending logs from menu is a recent addition. I'll stitch it into the OPs soon. Thanks again.

A good question is sometimes worth more than a good answer. Thanks @ChungHung.Chen for an exploration of and questions about FTP that prompted a deeper dive into server settings and resulted clarity in the Servers section of the FAQ.

I'm not sure, which is why I created the "placeholder" as a reminder document this.

Did you shared your creation somewhere? I would like to get rid of those colorful icons on navigation drawer, I'm collecting resources to try to create a Windows 10 (MLD2) for Mixplorer. Thanks.

Batch renaming and use of regex are not well described in the FAQ, in much the same manner that they are not well defined in my mind. Regex has advanced potential and can seem intimidatingly technobabble-ish but the FAQ should have at least some basics. With that in mind (and remembering that my knowledge of this is weak and unlikely to grow ATM) a harvest begins. May the fields be fertile and may these seeds take root:

- A good batch rename example: https://forum.xda-developers.com/gen...8#post70736798

- Another example described here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ostcount=17849

- A not as good but very simple regex batch rename is described at the end of this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ostcount=16745

- In re renamed multiple different files to multiple different names: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ostcount=16801

[EDIT]
- A nice site with simple explanations and exercises to help get acquainted with regex: https://regexone.com/

I'll keep an eye out for other relevant posts and information.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...&postcount=128

[EDIT March 12 2017]:
Some syntax for batch file renames and the like:

%n (Name)
%e (Extension)
%d (Date)
%t (Time)
%a (APK label)
%v (APK version)

[EDIT]HP Has requested descriptions of common search expressions which AFAIK he might build into MiXplorer so people dont need to learn regex: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ostcount=18137. In addition, the surrounding discussion may be helpful for those (such as myself) seeking to practice and learn regex so I'm harvesting some of the new search ideas with regex practice in mind.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ostcount=18145
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ostcount=18146

More examples:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ostcount=18342
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ostcount=17847

There are probably others

[EDIT] July 2017, Another regex renaming suggestion from HP: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...691&p=73145601

You don't make it work the way you want it to. You learn how it works. If MiXplorer has proper access to drives on your device your device it is not that hard to do.

That is the basic search not the recursive search.

There is a universe possibilities between those 2 things, including just learning how to use the advanced search function (and learning about such regex). I'll try to explain even though tt this point you are waving a metaphorical banner that says "I'm not interested in learning this this even though it would help me". .

It sounds like you don't have the proper parameters in your search.

- Tap search icon.
- Tap recursive button.
- Enter a contiguous string of text that is contained in the names of the files you seek.
- Select "Contains" from the drop-down.
- Make sure none of the check boxes are ticked.
- Make sure Bigger and Smaller are at 0 (zero)
- Make sure no before after dates are specified.
- Tap Go.

- You already can search for everything under a given folder by selecting the regex option and using a dot "." as a wildcard. (BTW, I did not know this until just now when I spent 30 seconds on-line searching for regex wildcard. - something you could do as well).

- Also, MiXplorer has many built in bookmarks that are search-all for each of various file types.

As to restricting search options to "Search all": Search-all is a resource intensive function and in most cases returns less useful results. It is much more valuable to be able to search for items containing a string of text in the name or by other criteria. Furthermore, after doing a recurssive search in MiX the results will be in their own Tab where you can perform actions on them as if it was a folder, while you can navigate to other locations in other tabs as well.

Please kmn..


Thank you so much!!!

And I'm extremely sorry.


(I did search for stuff about regex but I couldn't understand how to use it..)


My sincerest apologies for not being able to understand..

Perhaps I mistook a lack of understanding for a lack of effort. Many people, myself included, dont fully understand how to use regex. In fact I did not know even how to do a find all until researching your question, so we have that tidbit for the FAQ and also that nice little website as a regex coach.
