    I use quick finder and it works great! Defaults to the sd card which I like. Even warns you if you go away from the sd card.

    I've been having my own little "Showdown" on file managers. So far, ES and Astro are the remaining survivors. The way it looks, it will be a while before one actually loses :biggrin:.

    SUFBS is the best for rooted devices

    But Astro works fine otherwise.

    For those looking for ES file explorer. It's listed in the market as "EStrongs file explorer", then it shows on your device as ES file explorer.

    Yeah, but really there have only been two recommendations... Okay, three once the Droid gets rooted... :)

    Hmm?

    I don't see where the OP said anything of the sort.

    I find ES File Explorer just a bit more versatile/elegant than the others at this point.

    if you want an easy file explorer then try OI File Manager, its really basic but meets my needs, otherwise I'd go with Estrongs but that thing is huge comparatively
