The T5 debuted with an application called Files. This file manager was fully documented and used in many third party applications like DocsToGo 7. Search is enabled to do a rudimentary VFS file search. Also, it allows to open files directly if a supported application is installed.
Anyways, the E2 contains an online help that references to Files. And indeed, the program can be installed on a Tungsten T3 and E2:
This feat is easy to achieve. Get yourself a T5 and use a third party file manager like FileZ. Copy or beam the following files out of the T5′s RAM:
Anyways, adding these four files to an E2 instananeously enabled all kinds of things. Favourites now allowed to assign files as favourites, Blazer can open local files and DocsToGo 7 allows you to choose in which folder to save a file. The global find facility now looks for filenames in VFS btw. A Tungsten T3 behaved similarly, altough there is no Blazer and no Favourites on it(yet). However, DocsToGo 7 and Find exhibited a similar behaviour!
Overall, Files is a good file manager. It allows you to move directories. The direct file opening is an extremely useful feature-this compensates for the lack of RAM file view imho. And you can have Files and Filez installed at the same time.. . However, the main point of the ‘upgrade’ are the extra functions that are added to third party programs. Also, getting a file manager for free is-um-funky…
