    Re: File browser on PC

    As far as I know, there is no file browser for PC to access those folders. At least, none is available officially and publicly.

    However, if you want to access to folders in the memory card, it is always possible to connect the phone in "Data Transfer" mode. You will access to all folders on the memory card.

    I would rather guess that Cluo has found the USB Data Transfer mode suggested by Antony.

    Do not worry, I know Total Commander, although I prefer FAR Manager. But how does it relate to accessing data caged directories of a Symbian 9.x device (the original question)?

    There is at least one file system plug-in for Total Commander that gets you access to the 7650's file system using Symbian's interface later dropped by Nokia (was it still working in 6600?) and at least one plug-in accessing the new phones through the PC Suite interfaces, with obvious restrictions when it comes to browsing protected areas.

    Yes, i do mean that. But the plugin seems only works for few models of Nokia phones. I tried with my E65, it doesn't work. :( maybe Symbian or S60 should make one or publish one. make life easier.

    If you read about platform security and the like, you will quickly see that this is a emphasized element of the concept that you can not access these folders without special capabilities, and it is also declared that file browser applications will not get them.

    Can you post a link to the plug-in so we can also see what it can and cannot do?

    As for Nokia publishing such a plug-in, wizard_hu_ is right, such thing is simply out of the question.

    here is the link,
    http://www.totalcmd.net/plugring/SYMBFS.html
    but i think it is not mentioned for the system folder, so maybe the function is the same as Nokia file browser.
