ZenUI Asus File Manager is the alternative to Share Link for owners of Android from version 7 and up.
For those who like me have been upgraded by Android Samsung to version 7, you will notice that the Share Link application is no longer usable by showing a nice message of the kind:
“Share Link does not support Android N or later, as it may cause unexpected errors when used to transfer files”.
The message goes on to suggest to download ZenLink and indicating a link to the download.
Too bad that the link leads to a nonexistent page and searching for the network this application seems to be no longer available for download.
Never mind, making more research i found that the Asus has created a series of applications called ZenUI among which the file manager that i am about to describe.
ZenUI Asus File Manager – Installation

ZenUI Asus File Manager – Archive Analysis
It allows you to scan your archive memory to sum up the space occupied by the different file types.
In this way, we can understand if there are unwanted files or some type of need to be cleaned.
From this section, we can also search for large-sized files, locate them and eventually decide whether to move them to a secondary memory or delete them.
ZenUI Asus File Manager – PC File Transfer
It is, in my opinion, the most useful feature of Asus File Manager.
To connect the Android device to the PC is not necessary any physical connection with a USB cable, nor other applications installed on the desktop.
For the connection, it is sufficient that the device is in the same network as the PC from which you want to connect.

On Asus File Manager, in addition to the transmission of files from your Android device to your PC, you can also copy or move between different folders on the device.

In the latter case, we’ll have to configure the Cloud access account beforehand.
With this tool, we can handle different Cloud types with a single application, thus avoiding installing dozens of applications on your device.
ZenUI Asus File Manager – Conclusions
Asus File Manager is an excellent application for the management and file transfer.
Its strength lies in the simplicity and not having the obligation of having to download additional applications to transfer the files to your desktop PC.
