I gave Solid Explorer (SE) a quick spin. Like File Expert, the FTP server function does not allow you to access the root. I'll continue my review.
Update: I've discovered something interesting about SE; its FTP server doesn't timeout like ES File Explorer (ES) does. I can start up Dopus on the PC and connect even when the phone is sleeping. Now I just have to see what, if any, battery penalty might be involved. I've also noticed that ES File Explorer shows up as a constant 2% drain at Settings/Battery even when it's not being used?
