Windows Phone 8.1 - File Manager Capabilities ?

Windows Phone 8.1 - Is there a File Manager that will connect (WIFI) to an internal LAN and facilitate file copying to / from other LAN devices ie PC's Laptops etc ?

This is possible on Android with a wonderful App called ES File Explorer - would love to make the switch to play with Windows Phone but the lack of this facility is stopping me - does an equivalent app / function exist on Windows Phone 8.1 OS - as I cannot seem to find anyhting ?

Have you looked in the Windows phone marketplace?

I can't say what app may be of best use to you because all my content syncs automatically between my PC's and phone with OneDrive, plus OneNote syncs all my ad-hoc
notes, this is enough for me but I'm not sure if your needs extend much beyond this? There certainly seems to be plenty of file manager apps in the marketplace.

hi Paul
yes that setup is fine for documents calendars and stuff like that - its just when you'd use big media files - the odd home video etc / videos taken on phone etc - its quicker to transfer / sync internally on LAN for non cloud storage as my internet connection simply is not fast enough for big media file uploads to onedrive etc

cant see anything on marketplace to fit my requirements
so it looks like Windows Phone OS has still a lot of catching up to do regrettably - I'll have to make do with Android for now
