    I noticed that my the ASTRO Beta version is gonna expire on the 31st so I was just wondering if anybody can give me some suggestions on what app I should get for file managing and to backup all my apps? Free is good :) but i dont mind paying for it

    I'm in the same boat. Titanium backup is AWESOME. I was more than happy to donate for the full version. As for a task manager, Estrongs seems to get good reviews.

    no problem...i see you're rooted so you really need "root explorer" it's a few bucks but well worth it. i might just ditch astro and file go because as far as i can tell root explorer does everything the others do plus go into the root folder...with maybe the exception of backing up but i'm a solid titanium user for backups.

    Argghhh....I just checked my version of Astro and found that, yup, it expires in three days. I can only assume (hope, pray) that the developer makes a paid version available in the next few days. I'm too old to adjust to another file manager. :mad:

    I will also throw out there my HUGE support for Titanium Backup (paid version). I switch ROM's about as much as I switch underwear...well almost. Titanium is flawless and restores every time. If someone gets T.B. premium, every couple of days I got to my SD card and delete the TB folder and do a fresh backup. Just a hint.

    The Astro 'beta' also expired 3 months ago, and they extended it with an update.
