Clean Garbage left by apps this already mix has it. So would be integrate it.
Clean redundant 0b files and empty folders. Except special dot files.
Analyze Space .

Something like this https://images.app.goo.gl/sHAx8SxRQMo9KZcz7

This is and old version but same idea

SD Maid do that
Added navigation back button option in the Settings > More settings.

I disabled this and it still shows with everything to the right of the back button.
Breadcrumb.

I think we had this discussion a while ago. As @marciozomb13 posted this is one of several senseful functions of SD Maid, an app used by a lot of people (incl. me). The question was about the size and the digital footprint of Mix if I remember it correctly. But maybe @HootanParsa has an idea.

I do not know SD Maid, never user it but i remember that Hootan some years ago had started to improve a feature for Storage Analyzer (Do not remember well the name he gave) and then he abandoned and the feature option was hidden (Only option label was available by long press address bar)...

I do not think that should be a size or footprint reason that must be considered if we are speaking about Mixplorer...
Instead the question is: is that feature worth to be improved or not?

Storage analyzer is something that most file managers have (more or less improved) and for me is something that is missing in Mix... Yes, it was an old discussion but I will be very happy to have something similar also in Mix.

I don't necessarily disagree with your overall point but if we are going to make the case that MiX should be able to do a particular function then we should compare it to an app that is well-known for performing that particular function. SD Maid is arguably one of the best for that particular purpose. Any app considering adding a storage analyzer should compare to SD Maid and other apps that do the same thing.

but i remember that Hootan some years ago had started to improve a feature for Storage Analyzer (Do not remember well the name he gave) and then he abandoned and the feature option was hidden (Only option label was available by long press address bar)...
I remember that as well. It was very nice looking but it performed inconsistently across different devices and drives, in some cases having inaccurate or missing results.

One of MiXplorer's most valued aspects is its small resource footprint. To those people who value or require small resource footprint the question becomes "is the potential gain worth the expenditure of resources required to achieve it".

Storage analyzer is something that most file managers have (more or less improved) and for me is something that is missing in Mix... Yes, it was an old discussion but I will be very happy to have something similar also in Mix.
+1... if it does not increase the resource footprint... and if it can actually do what the specialist apps to which it is being compared can do.

Actually the Mix has part of this feature Tools/App Remnants. I dont know sd maid but would be nice to anlayze even root folders
It does, better, it feature a proprietary database to enhance the capture of the remnants. As they say: do less things but do it well. Mix is a powerful FILE MANAGER, I really don't want it become a Es File Explorer wannabe.
Edit: now I read clean remnants in root folders? Don't think it does, but don't think it needed. Android even system apps stores data in data partition, system contains mostly apk and some library, generally close one each other.

Sure i agree mix the most powerfull. I used in windows treesize.. I dont want it to become Es File Explorer a totally ruined app. But i consider that as file manager it should have a way to analyze a folder. FX explorer also have this. But none is powerful enough as mix

Hi, a minor issue with 6.51.7-Silver B21020782

It looks like the advanced find dialog inconsistently remembers different settings when I enter it the second time after the search. What I noticed:
1. Dates are never remembered.
2. Sizes (it seems) are not remembered when the "contains" field is empty
3. Sizes are always translated into KiB. I can live with that, but it is much harder to adjust the search parameters when I make changes incrementally depending on the results.

I attached the screenshots for the 1 and 3, so the one is made right before I clicked Go and the second one when I entered the dialog the second time. I still have some doubts about symptoms of 2.

@HootanParsa
Hootan please could you check those tiny issues in latest beta Version: 6.52.0-BETA B21022420 :
1. After installing, it does not show breadcrumb (changelog says enabled breadcrumb by default) I am on android 8.0

2. Home default bookmark now does not show mounted ExtSdCard (You have to add it manually) I remember silver build auto add ExtSdCard in home if it is mounted or am I wrong?
