When using X-Plore, you can view and manage two folders simultaneously using the dual pane explorer. This makes copying or moving files between folders easy.
If you have a Firestick with an external storage drive attached, you can view both your internal and external storage at the same time.
Create a Folder
Creating a new folder on your device or external storage is easy. Just follow these steps:
- In the left pane, tap on the location where you want to create the folder. For instance, I want to create a folder called “Recordings” on my external USB storage drive.
- Once you’ve selected the location, tap across to the centre console and click the New Folder button.
- Enter a name for your new folder and click Next.
If you create a new folder on an external USB drive, you will be prompted to grant X-plore access to the data on the drive.
If you fail to do so, you cannot view and manage your files on your external USB drive using X-plore.
Select Allow when prompted to grant access.
Your newly created folder is now visible and accessible.
