    Does anyone know why it's not possible to move files from a folder to another one using the CM File Manager? Whenever I try I get the following error message: "operation not allowed in the current folder" (or something similar, I have it set in Italian).

    If you are using the classic file manager with this blue icon and this white circle, just go to the folder that you want. Then check the files or folders that you want by left of it in this tiny empty box and then go normally by using the back key or what else to the folder that you want and press the menu button of the file manager(this with the little dots) and select Copy Selection e.t.c. or Move Selection e.t.c

    What folder are you in? Many of the folders just inside of '/' (the root) are read-only unless you have SU permissions (i.e. rooted).

    That method works, thank you! Not exactly the most intuitive and user friendly File Manager :p

    You're welcome m8. If you work a bit with it you will understand that this file manager is the fastest on the transfering ways. That's i believe and that's how it works ;)

    D file manager had gone missing after the OTA update... Any one have a clue what happened? Don't want to download an app. Bummer...

    That method doesn't work all the time. I have "The file or folder" not found error.
