There are no problems with logging in. After closing the program, authorization flies and you have to log in again.
This is a known problem of the conductor on the Russian-language forum.
On version 6.57.5 and below, there is no problem.
Are you in a position to run 6.67.5? Check the bookmark parameters, maybe one got lost.

EDIT: 6.57.5

Lost auth token after app restart :LOL:
And it's not just my problem, but everyone's.
Yes, you yourself can open an account in mail.ru and check.

For some reason this sounds familiar. It's possible that mix developer needs to make a change. You can search the main thread for "mail.ru" to see if there has been any past discussion about it. See my signature for tip about how to use XDA search.

I'm having some serious trouble with either MiXplorer or OneDrive.

I'm trying to move Swift Backup files to the cloud and it seemed to work once and never since. OneDrive actually notified me of a ransomware attack which turned out to be the encrypted backup files and nothing more. I made sure OneDrive registered the files were not ransomware.


Since then however, MiXplorer doesn't upload anything and simply returns "failed". I can't seem to understand the logs either.

Any one else run into something like this?

Do you have any other access to Onedrive? Is this other access working?

Is Mixplorer still able to view and download from Onedrive?

Maybe your Onedrive account was disabled. Or maybe this device was blacklisted. Try from another device. Try deleting Mixplorer bookmark, clearing cache, rebooting, recreating bookmark.

Hi folks, I have a file named:

The Myth of Statistical Inference_Acree.pdf

How can I search for this file in Mix by using ‘Acree’ (the author’s name)? Thanks!

I just noticed that, in my Mixplorer vers. 6.58.4-Silver, when I try to search recursively, I get the options 'Current Folder', 'File content', etc. but 'Metadata/Comment' is noticeably absent. Any ideas on how to bring it back? Thx.

There is not enough detail in your description to determine what could be going wrong but your other question seems to be of higher order and should probably be resolved first to avoid repetition.

I see it in my devices, and notice you've not described any items at the bottom of that list. Is this is simply a matter of scrolling down. Sometimes it's not obvious that such a thing needs to be done. If that's not it, a screenshot of that search panel with a list of the exact steps you took to invoke it would be helpful. There are different ways to invoke the panel in different circumstances; that should not normally determine what's visible in that list but is worth looking into.

I don't know if "Metadata/Comment" was ever an option.

I don't think there is anything meta about metadata (except maybe on an NTFS filesystem). What we call metadata in an MP3 file is still in the file. If it is unencrypted, uncompressed, text, then a search of file content will find it.

Recursive search was invoked by pressing the staircase-like arrow on the bottom right. See attached for the resulting panel. Metadata/comment is not there.

"Search File Content" definitely does *not* identify the metadata in the mp3 files of my Google drive

That is strange. I don't know what context sensitive aspect might prevent it from showing but it is indeed missing.

Maybe metadata search is only available if the tagger for some other add-on add-on is installed.

Just realized that metadata/comment does not show when searching the Google drive but shows when searching the internal storage!

Just to add, despite my nags about complete info, context sensetive things are difficult to track. It's good to know things like this (I had no idea). It would also help if searching threads at XDA was easier. In any event, I'll add a note to the search FAQ Nugget mentioning that some options are context sensetive.
 
I've noticed I can't access /Android/data and Android/obb anymore. Not sure when it happend since I don't get there a lot, but sometimes I do need to, in order to access/move gpx files in the bikecomputer app folder...

Maybe because I moved to Android 13 beta?

So here's the log, I use Google Pixel 5 rooted with Magisk. I normally run the Play Store version but I installed latest beta as recommanded before posting here :

Thanks for support, I really love the app and that bug is a bummer

That could very well be related to android 13. On android 10 and 11 rooted those locations must be granted document provider access in order for a variety of functions to work even if those functions are applied in different folders. If it is an android 13 issue you could try manually adding a document provider . (Add > Storage > document wil provider). You could also try to get to the location using a different path, although which different paths might be available varies by ROM and variant.

@IronTechmonkey
I guess it's A13 related... there's a way to get there by root /data/media/0 to access the Internal Storage but that's not as user-friendly as it used to be...

What do you mean by adding storage, where would I have to proceed that?

In MiX, adding storage in general means adding a bookmark to an external source. This should be documented in the FAQ OPs or Nuggets but briefly

Add (toolbar button) > Storage (list item) > document provider (list item)

That should invoke something which resembles the native file manager, offering to let you navigate to the desired location and allow permission.

Aw sorry I must be tired because that's actually something I tried to do, without any success as you can guess :)

Anyway, as I mentionned I have a backup solution, not pretty but it does the job while waiting for a fix in the future.

Thanks for the Help!

    Thanks to @TerrorFlatRider's note here, https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...y-featured-file-manager.1523691/post-87423135, some outdated information about skins in the FAQ was revealed. The FAQ still predominantly featured the old Skins gallery with alternate resources listed below, thereby pointing people first to an empty gallery, and both the FAQ and Main thread lacked a link in their OPs to the relatively smaller collection of skins available directly at the MiX website. The skins themes post has been updated to place the currently active skins/themes resources at the top (while leaving a historical note about the old gallery) and has been cleaned up a bit.

    MiX Nugget - Reset Root: if you are having problems moving files and possibly also losing root in MiXplorer you can try this suggestion to reset root. Thanks @Nimueh

    MiX Nugget: Set document provider for Android 13: although the FAQ contains some documentation about adding document providers in general and in particular for /android/data (and /android/obb and /android/media), this post describes some basic resets and addition of document providers for Android 13. Thanks @storm119

    A13 | Data Folder

    Recently read a report which explains that the access to Data folder was posible because a Bug.

    That is fixed on A13 so the FileExplorers has no access anymore except with Root or other posible Workarounds.

    If you search threads you'll find that this has been spoken to; recently discussed in the MiX main thread where there is a link to external page describing the closing of that loophole, then linked to this FAQ a few post prior to this one, and the user who provided the external link has since tested the latest version of MiX which may work around the issue (also in main thread). The information in those posts would be more meaningful to you than to me (A11) and I recommend that you search or review recent thread pages for more info. You could start with the post that I mentioned just a few posts above this one. It does seem that the developer has in part given a workaround. After reading the available material and trying what is suggested, if it's not working for you you could log it and report it the main thread.

    [EDIT] in fact at this moment the last several posts of the main thread speak to this very issue.

    Is this the right place for a Feature Request?
    Anything seen on the FAQ.

    Thank you

    The main thread is the place for a feature request but if you first want to check if it is something that can already be done or otherwise flesh out the request you could start here or in the main thread. Either way it is recommended to search to see if it has been spoken to. See my signature for tips on working around issues with XDA search feature.

    Hello, I can't connect to my FTPES server (not the one created whith MiX but my personnal one) except whith the version '6.51.1' or lower otherwise i get a "handshake error". Am i suppose to stay on that version or can i fix this issue and update? Here's the pastebin of the Log after the error I precise that the error is the same on my phone and on my tablet you can also find the config of my FTP connexion. Thank you for your response and sorry for the trouble if the questio have already been answered. (PS: I partially censored the address of the FTP)View attachment 5711253


    It seems as if you have an existing MiX bookmark to the external server which worked in a previous version of MiXplorer but does not work in the latest version.

    As of MiX 6.57 the MiXplorer servers were changed significantly enough to require reconfiguration which could impact MiX Bookmarks on other devices attempting to access the MiX server, but I don't know how that might affect MiX bookmarks to external FTPES servers. If you use FTPES regularly then you may understand it better than I do as I only use regular FTP but just in case this helps here is what I charted out regarding matching of settings and server prefixes (which has general application): https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-85932885

    If you do indeed have a MiXplorer bookmark to that same server which worked in a previous version of MiXplorer but does not work now, then I would suggest the following:

    - Check the change log in the opening posts of the main thread to see if anything specific to FTPES or your situation was changed.

    - If you are using an existing bookmark then try creating a new one.

    - Search the main and FAQ threads for FTPES. This is not to dismissively send you off searching. The type of connection you are making is not well documented in the FAQ as the focus there is on MiX servers, but there may have been some discussions about it from others who have worked around issues, and FTPES is at least a unique search phrase. See my signature about how to work around XDA website search bug.

    - Reproduce the issue in the newest version of MiXplorer while capturing a log, share log and details.

    Note: If you are just starting with MiXplorer then a general review of this FAQ might be helpful but if you seek information about a particular feature you can see if there is a "MiX Nugget" for it. 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.

    Note: the developer is sometimes away for periods of time, days or weeks or even months, but is good about following up upon return.

    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.
    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]


    4) APKMirror RSS Feeds: https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/pishrodevs/mixplorer-hootanparsa/feed/
    [inactive?]http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/hootanparsa/feed/ The ApkMirror RSS feeds are considered by many to be a similarly "stable" and up to date as the main MiXplorer thread and XDA Labs but it offers less information about the development progression of recent updates.

    5) Playstore (MiXplorer Silver). As announced by HootanParsa here https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=78465999&postcount=27232; "MiX Silver a bundle of MiX with Archive and SMB2 addons and the latest language resources is uploaded in Play store as a paid app to support the development of MiXplorer. If you liked it and installed it and found a problem, please let me know. Thank you very much. "

    Add-ons: MiXplorer Add-ons can be installed from within the app like this:
    Settings > Addons > and click add button > follow links to browse and download appropriate add-ons.

    MiXplorer Add-ons are also available through the XDA Labs Android app (search for MiXplorer) or through the XDA Labs Store browser pages for the MiXplorer app and Developer Hootan Parsa
    https://labs.xda-developers.com/store/app/com.mixplorer

    Note: these links may no longer work.

    --------------------------------------
    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.

    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")

    iii. WORKING WITH FILES & FOLDERS

    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.

    ----------------------------------------------
    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.
