    So I transferred a file from Windows 8 pro to my Windows Phone 8 (Nokia Lumia 920) where did my 10mb file go?

    I can't find it anywhere.

    Anybody done this and actually found the file you transferred to your phone?

    Since there are no apps that support reading zip or rar files, you probably won't physically see the zip file on the phone.

    On a side note, a friend emailed me photos in a zip file, when I opened the zip file through the email, a file explorer page opened up with the all the photos listed in it and I was able to tap and open each photo. So you should try emailing it to yourself and open it that way and then save the individual files.

    Hey Greg,

    So did you find a solution for your problem? The lack of a File Manager app is pissing me off.

    I transferred 1GB of FLAC audio from my N9 to WP8X via Bluetooth, only to have WP8X told me it cannot play FLAC. Now I have 1GB worth of FLAC in "Other" storage with no way to delete them.

    In the threads about this issue that I've read, I don't recall anyone saying there's no need for a file manager. Rather the argument is that the security restrictions that WP8 is built on would preclude the inclusion of a 'file manager' in its traditional sense. What's needed is a solution to the various file management problems pertinent to various activities and scenarios, rather than a general file manager per se.

    sigh...WinRT is a different operating system with a different underlying security architecture. It's not designed as a light-on-resources phone OS. One of the things everyone praises WP8 for is how lag-free and fluid it is, even on low-end hardware. While WinRT doesn't require the resources of Win 8, it certainly is a "heavier" OS than WP8. So running WinRT on, say, Lumia 620 grade hardware may produce an experience akin to the much maligned Android OS running on low end hardware - laaaaaagggggyyyyy.

    Now you may want a full WinRT phone, and given some hot hardware it could work - and it certainly may have a place in the greater scheme of things - but WP8 certainly isn't going to BECOME WinRT and vice versa, though some underlying components may be shared between them. Basically WP8 is...a phone. WinRT is a general purpose computing platform. So the features and underlying security structures of the two are DIFFERENT.

    So yes, Microsoft could CHOOSE to implement a general purpose file manager for WP8, but it's not as simple as just porting one from WinRT. Microsoft may well consider it worthwhile to perform some surgery on WP to include a general file manager at some point. Who knows? I think they'll find other ways of getting around the issues that people are currently complaining about.
