If I got this correctly, your car is connecting to a hotspot from your phone. Which means you probably have a dynamic IP generated by your ISP ( in this case your carrier ) and that would explain why it changes every time you use it.

The relationship between the devices connected as host and client of the hotspot should not be determine by the status of the cellular connection (at least not in my experience). In other words when I connect phone A as hotspot client to phone B as hotspot host they have the same IP addressing whether or not either or both are connected to mobile data.

Yes that's correct. What I don't get it had been working even with a dynamic IP.
1. Are you willing to install an old version of Mixplorer im the car to see if it goes back to working the way you remember?

2. If you repeatedly stop and start the server, and post the announced IP addresses, someone here may recognize a pattern.

3. A medium-term solution might be for you to ignore the address announced by Mixplorer and create a bookmark on the phone with the phone's true, external, IP address -- and, of course, the port number specified by Mixplorer. If a mobile hotspot behaves like my home router, it will be assigned an IP address for six months at a time, or longer. You will still experience sudden failure, but you will go longer between consecutive failures.

If the carrier changes the IP of my smartphone after I set up a server on the laptop, I will lose the connection to that now obsolete IP and need to restart the laptop server with the new IP from the smartphone -- this happens to me sometimes.

Why the six months exactly ? In my case my LTE carrier can change the IP several times a day. Granted, I have no idea when it is a car instead of a laptop, no idea about Android there, but I thought my case would be more similar than the "at home" router situation.

Im gonna try it after work with an older version and will report back.

You're right, your case sounds closer to the original problem description. I have no experience with using a phone to provide a hotspot. I have found that the IP address assigned to a home modem/router goes months without changing. It may be that mine never changed, except when I changed ISP.

On the other hand, in the situation you describe, I would expect that the phone could continue to use the laptop server, even after the phone's external IP has changed, if the phone used the internal address to connect to the laptop.

In the situation you describe, is there a third device accessing the laptop server? Is the third device outside the phone-laptop network?

We're talking different things, I think, I didn't explain quite well. By starting a server on the laptop I mean an SFTP or HTTP server to serve guests from the internet using the smartphone as router, not a connection between phone and laptop to share anything between them or access each other.

I really have no experience with a car and what Android does there, probably not useful to compare and I'm not helping.

I think you explained clearly. The piece I am missing is, when a guest connects to the laptop server, does he specify the external IP address of the phone, with the appropriate port number; or does he use the internal address of the laptop? And when your ISP changes the external address of the phone, does that have any effect on the laptop's internal address?

Hello everyone, thanks a lot to the devs for their great work (I enjoy a lot of customization that offers mixplorer). To not reproduce the same discussion about usb OTG answered a lot of times in the thread :
1) I'm on A12 ROM, usb is detected, but after a delay of 10-15s, and if it's connected with mixplorer, it can't be detectable in any other app
2) copying speed is the half of what I have in other explorers (solid for exemple) take a look at attachments
3) is there anyway to make "drag and drop" automatically move files, without the options pop-up

Yes, the address from outside would be in the form
Code:
external_IP:port
and so if the IP changes on the smartphone, and with LTE it does more or less often, sometimes in the same day, I have to change the IP on the laptop server and restart it -- which I thought might be the case with the car. ( I don't use the internal or private address unless it is to transfer between laptop and phone -- that would be a 192.168.etc )

Edit : There's no reason for the internal address to change if the external one by the carrier does. But in my case that would be a python http server running on the smartphone, accessible from the laptop, not from outside, and not the server started on the laptop, which must change. Similarly, I believe the problem was a server started on the car, not MiX's server from the phone ?

I believe he said he ran Mixplorer on the car, and started a server on the car.

With your setup, can a third device connect to the laptop server by specifying the internal address of the laptop? (When you said you do this for the benefit of a guest, I assumed the guest was also using your phone's hotspot, and so was on the same local network as the phone amd laptop.)

Gentlemen, thanks for your inspiring discussion about android hotspot. I don't use it, but want it to work in case I need it some day. So, I've done a little test, too.

Assuption / Setup:
- Mobile Data Connection (random external IP) on "primary" android device
- Hotspot enabled on this device
- 2nd android device, connected to primary device, starting MiX server
- primary android device connecting as client to MiX server on second android device

On my primary device, every time I start the hotspot, the ip subnet changes, so the second android device gets another internal ip address, regardless if the external ip address from the mobile provider has changed or not. That's no revolutionary news, as it only confirms what others have already written here.

And I've found this thread in which the problem is discussed, too:
How do I assign a permanent static IP address to hotspot in Android 10

There's a statement from @bloodyearth: "Unfortunately, starting with Android 9, the gateway is always set randomly." I wonder how someone could think of this as a good idea.

Obviously there's no (easy) way to change that behaviour, you probably have to have root (if it's possible at all).

It's possible to get the ip adresses of the connected devices with a simple shell command (ip neighbour). But then what to do with this information? It should be possible to change the ip of the server in the bookmark of the guest device (primary android device), e.g. with an android intent. Maybe an idea for a feature request?

In short, my smartphone is my "router". So no, from outside ( not connected to the smartphone hotspot ) no one has access to the internal address. Would be akin to someone accessing your LAN from the internet. Shouldn't happen, if it does, something's terribly wrong with the set-up.

Maybe MiX could detect and forward the changing address to a fixed one, generated or defined by the user, same as a router forwards ports ? And this seems to be what's needed for the car issue as well if I'm understanding it all.

Edit : Most likely can't be done without root, though.

I've seen it, but as I don't have a device with Android 12, I can't be of much help. Maybe that's the reason, you didn't get an answer at all until now. A12 is still new. But as I've read your post again, I'd like to try an answer.

To not reproduce the same discussion about usb OTG answered a lot of times in the thread :
As you've read the information about how to get otg work and it still doesn't work, you could take a log and post it in the main thread of MiXplorer. Maybe only the developer can find a solution. In Addition, please follow the steps about how to report a bug, e.g. Android 12 is quite unspecific.

2) copying speed is the half of what I have in other explorers (solid for exemple) take a look at attachments
Maybe thats because you use different paths: /mnt/media... and usb://... Does the copying speed differ also when you use the same paths? If yes, that may be also worth logging...

I'm using the latest MIX in android 10. I attached a spare HDD formatted FAT32 via a USB otg cable. It is just an experiment to see if I can use it as a backup external drive.

MIX recognizes the HDD and it looks like I can read and write to it. But,

1. What is 'asec '? Can I change things so the HDD is like another flashdrive?
2. I keep getting popups about permissions. How and where do I get rid of these popups?

Thank you.

Thank you.

/mnt/secure/asec (the actual path, not the bookmark) is a system folder or virtual path which IIRC is not directly related to the SD card, I see it (empty) on 3 devices, some rooted and some not rooted some Android 10 and some 11, without SD cards attached. Perhaps that bookmark was accidentally created while you were navigating to an SD card at some previous time. (which would be along the same part of the directory tree)

That permissions box can be persistent. During one of my tests I had to acknowledge it for each folder . If you've not already done so try browsing to the root of the intended drive and grand permission there.

    Finally I've found my way out of the rabbit hole; which took a while because it turned out that beneath the rabbit hole there was a more bizarre, labyrinthine and dystopian world populated by Chud, Mole People, and Google security "decision makers"; and to my surprise a prospective feature request emerges.

    Possible feature request: Is there a way to audit or list the various directories which have been granted directory tree access in MiX? Should there be such a thing?

    Hypothesis:
    The delays which had been occurring on my device, 15 seconds for Tasker to complete each command to write a line of text, seem to have been caused by Google's failure to manage the history of required document tree permissions, and a failure to consider the likely history of material on an SD card.

    Test:
    Five SD cards of varying capacity and % of used space, eliminating factors such as overall amount of material on drive, amount and nature of material in directory, media library given time to scan tested after reboots and manual scan in MiXplorer, and a few other things.

    Apparent Problem:
    Tasker revealed what seemed to be a history or a series of overlapping document tree permissions which had been granted, stating that the one which indicated the folder in question (which has cap and lower case characters) could not be granted but, Tasker also listed the same folder with the same name with different characters in caps as OK (possibly a legacy previous SD card or device), and in spite of the error to the first folder in question Tasker was able to write to that folder.

    Fix:
    After renaming the original folder (which contained caps and lowercase) to [anything else], and creating a new folder with the same name but in all lowercase letters, and copying the material from the renamed original folder to the new one, and again granting permissions to that part of the document tree (in a Tasker settings). Then the permissions were properly granted and the delay writing the lines of text went from 15 seconds to less than 1 second.

    Factors:
    These symptoms are consistent with the way I manage that folder when swapping SD cards or upgrading devices or sometimes even just and copying large amounts of material, and I think the following factors may be at play.

    - Folders that were originally created on another device.

    - Folders that were renamed on same android device or other device.

    - Folders which have a combination of lowercase and capital letters where the name was not changed but the case of some of the characters in the name was changed (significant because of the different ways that Linux and Windows handle that).

    - Folders which may have been copied or moved may behave differently depending on how the managing operating system handles permissions. (Significant because of the way Windows might handle potentially inherited permissions differently for file copy and file move operations).

    MiXplorer seems less affected and better able to handle this stuff but there have been reports of disproportionately long delays copying small files which might also be consistent with this issue. If MiXplorer had a way to present the history of document tree permissions which had been granted, that would be one of the first things I check out when such delays occur. That being said this may not be possible or may not merit priority regarding app development.

    BTW, I'll spare us another rant about Google but they make a mockery of the idea that they're keeping us secure with this sloppy legacy of document tree permissions. :)

    I use "Terminal Emulator for Android" by Jack Palevich. It is on Google Play Store. It is very old.

    It was forked and it is still maintained here : https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.termoneplus

    In storage i see a SD card, emulated and self. In meda_rw i see SD card. I dont have terminal emulator. What is best ? Is any plugin for tasker ?

    Many people use Termux.

    There is no "best".

    I suggested terminal emulator as way to show us listings of files. It is not important. Just tap on "media_rw". Then tap on entry for SD card. Then try to copy a file. Tell us what happens.

    This is explained in a FAQ post specifically about settings. Export from within the settings panel. Import from file list.

    Zero results at this time.

    Zero results to what?

    [EDIT] Ahhh, I see. The link in the post section you quoted has indeed gone bad. It seems that since that link was posted the organizational structure of APKmirror has changed and MiX is now indexed under a different name or location on the server than it was before. I've modified the OP accordingly like so:

    "MiX at APK Mirror: https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/hootan-parsa/mixplorer-hootanparsa/
    Old link (just in case) https://www.apkmirror.com/uploads/?q=pishrodevs.
    If this link does not work then search Google for [MiXplorer APK Mirror
    ]"

    One of the nice things about MiX is that it is available outside of Playstore. Thank you for mentioning this so it could be fixed..

MiX Nuggets are individual freestanding FAQ posts which describe a MiXplorer feature in enough detail for basic use without having to sift through whole FAQ. v. MiX NUGGETS (Freestanding Topical Posts).

    --------------------------------------
    i) INTRODUCTION

    As mentioned in an introduction from the main thread: "MiXplorer (Mix of Explorers) is a fast, smooth, beautiful, reliable and fully-featured file manager with a simple and intuitive user interface." created by XDA member and Recognized Developer @HootanParsa

    I (IronTechmonkey) am a MiXplorer user and tester who volunteered (was volunteered) to create the FAQ but I am not the/a developer.

    This FAQ attempts to describe configuration options, file & folder operations, UI options, and utilities, as well as to share workarounds for known issues or usage cases. Please feel free to provide, suggestions, corrections, or additions which could be linked to or added to the OPs. Thanks to all for your input already as much of this comes from your questions and answers in the main MiXplorer thread. Thanks to @HootanParsa for such a good file management utility.

    Please continue to direct bug reporting and tech discussion to the primary MiXplorer thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691.

    SOME MIXPLORER HISTORY (MiXtory?)

    This post by HootanParsa describes a how MiXplorer got started and some key events during its relationship with Google Play Store. https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...y-featured-file-manager.1523691/post-77894840

    Here is another note from HootanParsa regarding the history of MiXplorer on Playstore https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691&p=73870110.

    MiXplorer is closed source, and because the developer rarely if ever engages in discussions about closed vs. open source this is not discussed at length in the main MiX thread. This is not by any rule but rather by respect for the developer's decision. That being said, past discussions about closed vs. open source have been well informed and informative. Such discussions really do relate to software development, if not to the bugs to be fixed at any given moment, so please feel free to have such discussions here if/when they become too much for the main thread.

    --------------------------------------
    GETTING MIXPLORER

    There are several ways to get MiXplorer and keep it updated, each of which may appeal to different usage cases. Also note: The Playstore-Silver and XDA-Stable versions of MiXplorer are essentially the same (sometimes with small variation) but the Playstore-Silver version includes some add-ons (describe below and at Playstore page) which would have to be installed separately and manually in the XDA version.

    The Playstore_Silver version is also a way to contribute to MiXplorer development.

    As to upgrade paths: The Play Store gives a one-shot installation and upgrade path for the app and its included add-ons. The XDA stable version allows users to decide specifically which add-ons are installed but offers a similarly simple upgrade path from with the app.

    1) Main Thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691
    This is the best place to start for people who want the latest stable version, which is usually available in post 2. This is also where you can get the latest beta version. Note: it is always a good idea to check the main thread's OPs to see what version # is flagged as stable, as well as check the change-log.

    2) XDA Labs. It might still be possible to use the XDA labs site in web browsers but no longer the XDA Labs app to download MiX. The MiXplorer version may not be exactly the same as latest "stable" in MiXplorer thread but this is a "stable" update track.

    3) APK Mirror: This is a repository of more versions of MiX than most people would need, but some of these builds may be helpful in some situations and it provides access outside of Playstore.

    --------------------------------------
    INSTALLATION:

    After installing MiXplorer there are some things that must be done in order to give MiXplorer proper access to storage locations and root or SU access. It is a good idea to get these things out of the way as part of the installation (or update) of MiXplorer rather than on-the-fly as you need to perform file management tasks. Here is a brief walk-through of how to give MiXplorer it's requisite permissions. This is written for Android Nougat which has more of these prerequisites than earlier Android versions so please note that things may differ across different ROMs and SU/root methods:

    Do this stuff first, immediately after installing MiXplorer but before configuring it and importing skins and or settings

    - At first run of MiXplorer at prompt "Allow MiXplorer to access photos, media, and files on your device?" Select to Allow.
    - Make sure root is enabled in MiX setting > Navigate to Root "/" to force first time SU permissions request > Select " allow" and "remember".
    - Navigate to external SD and create a new folder. There should a prompt "Attention Please select Ext SD... to gain permissions". Note: In some situations you may not have to create a folder to invoke this prompt.

    BUG REPORTING

    - Please report bugs in the primary MiXplorer thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691. Bug reports should include. details about your device (Android version, ROM version, Root status, SU method, MiXplorer version) as well as a step by step description of how to reproduce the issue and a log taken while the issue was reproduced. There are more suggestions for testing, logging and reporting bugs in this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=65157367&postcount=7

    --------------------------------------
    2) Navigation

    To navigate through folders; Tap the name of he folder you want to enter, or select a bookmark or history item. Note: Tapping the icon to the left will select and highlight the folder.

    To go to the previously accessed folder:; Press back button.

    To go anywhere in the path you are browsing: Tap the Location button in Main bar then tapping the part of the folder tree you want to go to.

    To go to a manually entered location: Long press the Address in the Main bar then tap “Enter the path”. Note the other things that can be done from this menu: Copy path, Copy name, Enter the path, Create shortcut, Clear thumbnails cache, Properties. Note: The items in lists like this may change as MiXplorer evolves.

    To search for items: Tap the search icon, then you can start typing what you want to find in current folder.
    To filter the search: tap the leaning-hamburger, then select an option.
    To search recursively (into sub-folders): Tap the right-angle arrow icon, then choose options and search criteria. See this FAQ Nugget for recursive and advanced search options: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-82781351
    Regex: Regex is a fairly powerful method of using expressions (wild-cards and variables) to do searches, and can also be used for renaming files.

    3) Bookmarks/History (Drawer)

    To open the Drawer for Bookmarks and History: Tap hamburger in Main Bar, or swipe from the left edge toward right.

    To create a Bookmark to a location on the device: Navigate to the location, then long press the Location in the Main (top) Bar, then tap "Add to...", then tap "Bookmarks"; or Navigate to one level above the folder, then long press the folder in the file/folder list, then tap overflow menu, then tap "Add to...", then tap "Bookmarks". :

    To create a Bookmark to a network share, server or cloud: Open Drawer, then tap hamburger, then tap Add storage, then select and configure the type of storage. There is a "Custom" option at the bottom of the list. Here are examples of 2 common types of network bookmarks:

    1) To access shared folder (SMB share) on PC or other computer on same local network.:
    - Have a shared folder on a computer with file sharing and network discovery enabled.
    - Open MiXplorer on device connected to same network.
    - Bookmarks Drawer
    - Hamburger button
    - Add Storage
    - Custom
    - Search local
    - Enter credentials
    - If the search finds no shares there may be an issue with the sharing on the host or network between devices but you could try manual configuration.

    2) To access an FTP Server on another device:.
    - Have an FTP server to connect to.
    - Bookmarks Drawer
    - Hamburger button
    - Add Storage
    - Custom
    - Enter server details (ftp://<ipaddress>:<port>, user-name password)

    Notes about network and cloud bookmarks:

    - When you create a connection to local network share or cloud via <Bookmark Drawer - hamburger - Add storage>, a Bookmark will automatically be created.

    - Depending on the type of network location, when you browse the network location you may or may not be able to create bookmarks to locations within that tree as described above. This should work for SMB shares on a computer or folders on another Android device accessed via MiXplorer FTP and might work for others.

    - When you save an off-device bookmark, some context sensitive additional configuration variables may or may not be added to the "Advance settings" field, which in some cases can be edited manually later.

    To Delete or modify a bookmark: Open the Drawer, then swipe the bookmark name to the right, then select appropriate action.

    To rearrange bookmarks: Open the Drawer, then tap and drag a bookmark by it’s icon up or down.

    To create a custom category (similar to custom bookmark for a search) in the bookmark list: Open 'All files' - Tap on the search button - Recursively - Enter file-name extensions eg; *.zip|*.rar|*.txt - Press GO - Long press the address bar - Add to bookmarks.

    To reset the search-all-by=type folders (archive, apk,image, video, etc) if they are gray and don't work: If you are updating from an older version of MiXplorer you may have to click on bookmark menu and choose "reset default" (which should preserve your own bookmarks) to recreate the new versions of the search bookmarks, then you can delete the gray ones.

    Bookmark functions via the Bookmarks Menu: Add storage Reset defaults; Remove all, Export. Note: To import bookmarks, open the exported .micfg file with MiXplorer and select import.

    To switch between Bookmarks and History : Open Drawer then tap the Bookmarks or History label in top Bar.

    To clear history: Open Drawer to History, then tap mini-hamburger.

    --------------------------------------
    4) Tabs

    1st Tab is left-most. Last Tab is right-most. New tabs will open to the right of the active tab.

    General Tab functions can be accessed via the tab menu and are context sensitive, based on Tab bar visibility and tab arrangement.

    Some functions can can be accessed by long pressing on a Tab when the Tab Bar is visible.

    To refresh a Tab’s view: Swipe down, or tap on the name in the Tab Bar, or tap the location name in main bar then tap it again in the drop down.

    To open a new tab:
    - Open Bookmarks/History
    - Long press on the item that you want to open in a new tab
    or
    - Select a folder in the main page
    - Tap the overflow menu in the action bar
    - Tap "Open in new tab",
    or;
    - Tap the Tab menu then tap "Add new tab"
    or;
    - When on last (right-most) tab, Swipe from right edge to left (depends on "Settings" - ""More Settings" - "Swiping in first and last...")


    Save single tab as default tab or to save a group of tabs (Note: "Save" may occasionally be referred to as "Pin")

    To save an individual Tab be opened to a specific location at each app start (default tab)
    - Have only one tab opened.
    - Navigate to desired location.
    - Long press on Tab Title then tap "Set as default".
    - Open the Tab drop-down menu, select, "Save tabs", Tap "Now" (leave "On Exit" un-selected).

    To save a group of tabs (tab-set) to be opened at each app start:
    - Create the tabs, and open each to the location of your choice.
    - To set the default tab (to be active at app start) long press on Tab Title then tap "Set as default".
    - Open the Tab drop-down menu, select, "Save tabs", Tap "Now" (leave "On Exit" un-selected).
    Note: View detail level and sort order should be remembered per tab.

    To have MiXplorer save the tab-set that is in place at each app close (to be opened at next app app start):
    - Open the Tab menu.
    - Select check box: "On Exit".

    To reset tabs to whatever was last saved by 'Save tabs - Now" or by "Save tabs - On exit":
    - Open the Tab menu then tap Reset tabs. Each Tab's view level and sort order should be remembered and not be reset by this action.


    5) Views (file folder list)

    There are many ways to configure the file/folder list views using the "View" and "Sort" buttons which appear in the Tools bar at the bottom (in the default skin and configuration). Here are a few of the more notable functions:

    - "View" button - "Recursive data": When "Recursive data" is enabled (and after a refresh of the view) MiXplorer will calculate and show the quantity of items and storage space uses in sub-folders.

    - "View" button - "Reset defaults": When "Reset defaults" is enabled then pinch zoom settings can be reset to default for each drive independently by going to root of drive, then selecting a view mode (eg "Detailed"). To maintain the different zoom levels disable "Reset defaults".

    - "Pin" an item to top of list: A folder or file can be "Pinned" so it stays at the top of the list view regardless of sort options. To pin/unpin an item: Select it then open menu then select pin/unpin. Similarly, apps in the "Open with" list can be pinned to the top of that list by long pressing the app then tapping "Pin"

    - Create a custom thumbnail: To create a custom thumbnail for a folder (which would be used when "Auto folder preview" is enabled in main settings) put the image you want to use for the thumbnail in the folder and rename it to .preview.

    - Gallery style view for search folders: For the search folders which show all of a certain file type (eg Audio, Document, Image, Video), there is a gallery style view which shows all images of the designated type on the device but grouped in folders by location similar to the way most default gallery apps work. To enable this mode: Tap the "Sort" button then enable "By parent". To show all items in one list without the folders, disable "By parent"

    - App, User App, System App: When viewing contents of the "App" search bookmark, tapping on Location allows choice of App (all), User App, System App. To create a custom bookmark to any of those: Tap the Location in Main Bar, then select desired view (App, User App, or System App) then long press location and "Add to" bookmarks.

    6) "Home" page

    A full page panel containing locations with details, described in more detail here: MiX Nugget - Home Page - https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=82781209&postcount=1168

    View Customization (more in Skins/Themes)

    Disable Thumbnails (folder specific}: Place image in folder > rename to .nothumbnail
    Custom Folder Icon (folder specific): Place image in folder > rename to .foldericon
    Custom Folder Icon Preview (folder specific): Place image in folder > rename to. preview

    Notes:
    - Some image properties may not function properly. Icons can be optimized here: https://tinypng.com/
    - Some of these may depend on a related setting within the app (eg .preview file and setting "Auto folder preview")

    ----------------------------------------------
    Bug Reporting:
    Please report bugs in the primary MiXplorer thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691.

    Bug reports should come from the newest beta version of the app. If you notice a bug in the newest release version then check the newest beta. If it also occurs in the beta then log it from there.

    Bug reports should include. details about your device (Android version, ROM version, Root status, SU method, MiXplorer version) as well as a step by step description of how to reproduce the issue and a log taken while the issue was reproduced.

    ----------------------------------------------
    MiXplorer's Built-in Logging:


    Enable MiXplorer logging
    : Settings . More settings . Logging (enable)

    MiXplorer has a native logging feature. If logging is enabled (as it is by default) then the most efficient and the recommended way to do it is the following:

    - After crash or after experiencing issue,
    - Open MiXplorer
    - 3-dots menu
    - Send log.

    If you have disabled logging in the past, or you if are diagnosing more complicated issues or if you will be reviewing the logs yourself before sending. Here is a manual method that some people use:

    - Enable MiXplorer logging.
    - Close MiXplorer.
    - Open MiXplorer.
    - Reproduce the issue.
    - Close MiXplorer.
    - The logs should be in /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.mixplorer/cache/log/ (The path may vary slightly depending on ROM).
    - Use alternative file manager (just for this ;)) to get most recent log in folder.
    - If using MiXplorer to get the log manually, then make sure to get the log for the previous MiXplorer session rather than the one for the current session.

    Testing and Logging Notes:

    - Reproduce and log issues in a new session of MiXplorer that was started after logging has been enabled. In other words: Enable logging, then close MiXplorer, then start MiXplorer to reproduce the issue and send the log. A new log is created each time you open MiXplorer. Note: - In some cases it is recommended to test the issue in a clean installation of MiXplorer (after uninstalling MiX then reinstalling it).

    - The MiXplorer log directory will not appear until MiXplorer logging has been enabled at least once since last new installation of MiXplorer. Also, if MiXplorer is uninstalled the log folder will be deleted, so if you are getting logs manually during repeated tests remember to do so before next uninstall.

    - Before sharing logs it is a good practice to review them for information that you don’t want to share, and to delete that information or replace it with an obvious label, eg <thing x deleted>. To each their own about what to delete, but reviewing logs with privacy in mind before sending is prudent.

    - For logging more complex issues, or certain types of FCs where native app logging does not catch the error, a full system log (logcat) may be needed. The app "MatLog" (formerly "CatLog") from Play Store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pluscubed.matlog&hl=en can be used to capture logcats on the device. If an issue is causing reboots then the log might have to be taken from a USB connection on a computer via ADB.

    - When you share the log, also share the following:

    1) Full details of the device including: Android version, ROM version and variant, Root status, SU status, busybox status.
    2) A detailed description about how to reproduce the error when logging so others may try to reproduce it.

    Search, searching for items: Expanded description of search methods in this post. MiX Nugget - Searching for Files and Folders: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=82781351&postcount=1170

    Select a file or folder: Long press anywhere on the file, or tap on the icon at the left side.

    Select multiple files and or folders: Select one file or folder as described above and then select additional items by tapping on the name of each item.

    Select all files and folders in the current view: Tap the "Select all" button in the tools bar, or open overflow menu and tap Select all. Note: the Select all button and the Servers button can be swapped in the Tools Bar via Settings - More Settings.

    Once you have selected any item(s) the Action Bar will appear (temporally replacing the Main Bar) and will show a counter of selected items with their size, and icons for some standard actions with an overflow menu for more actions. The downward pointing arrow now offers options to expand shift or invert the selection.

    There are several ways to to Copy or Move items:

    Task queue Select items, then choose an action (repeat process for multiple jobs), then navigate to destination, then tap Job Queue, then select queued task.

    - Individual pending tasks or all pending tasks can be cleared from the queue.

    - Pending Copy tasks in the queue can be repeated to different destinations.

    Drag & drop: Select some items then long press on that selection and drag. A hovering pop-up will appear indicating how many selected items are being dragged.When the the destination folder becomes highlighted, release the selection and respond to the then a “Drop files” prompt which offers a choice to copy or move the selected items.

    Copy To and Move To: To copy/move files to a folder to be selected during the process; select items, open menu, tap ]Copy To or Move To, navigate to location, tap OK.

    Some long file operations can be paused using the play/pause button in the task status window. Also, from there the task can be canceled or sent to background.

    Delete options. There are several delete methods, the visibility of which may be context sensitive, and MiXplorer has a native "recycle/trash" feature which can be enabled in Settings - More Settings - Undo.

    Normal: Deletes file “normally”. As is the case with file deletions (not Recycle or Trash) in other OS, the deletion is non-reversible but the raw data may persist until incidentally written over by other system activity.

    Trash: Similar to Recycle or Trash bins on desktops. The locations (drives/root paths) where “Trash” functions may very across ROMs and devices. When "Undo" is enabled as described above the following should occur:

    - Deleted items are placed in hidden folders named .recycle at the root of each drive. Don't delete those manually unless you are not using the "Undo" feature.

    - In the main menu there is an item called "Undo" which shows a list of available undo items. Long press on an item in that list to see the specific files that can be restored. Short press to restore that item/group of items.

    - Menu > Undo > "Remove all"; will delete all the .recycle folders and their contents from all drives (if they exist). Also nota bene: only do this if you are sure you wont need to restore anything). Any time you "Trash" something when "Undo" is enabled the .recycle folder for that drive will be recreated. If you've already disabled "Undo" in settings and still have leftover material in the .recycle folders, those folders can be deleted manually (requires "Show hidden")

    - In some cases you may be able to recover items manually from the .recycle folders.

    - If the trash cannot be emptied, try the following: Main Menu > Undo > Remove all, or Settings > More Settings > deselect Undo. As with manually deleting the contents of the trash/recycle folder, make sure you dont need anything from there before doing this.

    Shredder: Destroys files before deleting them. Only available for certain locations. May take longer for larger selections. Deletion by this method is non-reversible and leaves minimal if any recoverable data on the drive.

    Batch Delete: When you try to delete a folder as "Normal", it also takes time to clean up database, removing thumbnails, etc... . You can use "Batch Delete" to remove that folder as fast as possible.
