    I was searching through WP 8.1 features but didn't file File-Manager features.

    Can anyone answer that WP 8.1 have File-Manager or not?

    File-Manager is all time most demanded feature
    Feature Suggestions: Top (48094 ideas) – Feature Suggestions for Windows Phone

    If MS still not provide this feature than it means either developers are very slow or they don't care about what user want.
    Because their is no other explanation for this

    Do you mean a proper File-Manager through which we can access phone storage and SD Card and add new folder and can delete file?

    Read this :- Windows Phone 8.1 Features | Windows Phone Central
    There is a file picker (similar to file manager ) under general user experience changes
    Or read here on Wikipedia :- Windows Phone 8.1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    (Read file system section )

    It is very much confirmed earlier by Microsoft on user experience and feedback page , they quickly removed it though , and now with the latest SDK , there is indeed a file manager :)

    It will probably be app based. A lot of the issues surrounding WP functionality has to do with it's locked down SDK. It would appear this is going to be fixed and I expect better app development after WP8.1.

    As for the initial question of the OP.

    We won't have a file manager similar to Android or Symbian. It will be integrated within Onedrive. Any app wishing to use 'files' will still have to incorporate this functionality into the app. These Onedrive files will be local to the phone, not cloud based.

    I'm not entirely sure how the file picker fits into this.

    Short answer - Nobody knows. Waiting until 8.1 is launched officially would be best.

    Yes. Yes it does. It will work in a similar way files work in Windows 8.1 - you can either access local files, or cloud files from apps like OneDrive or Dropbox. It hasn't been announced yet, but traces of the feature are already present in the OS - like the file picker in IE.

    I'm just going to wait I think. Next week isn't that far away and I'm tired of the speculation.

    Depends on how quickly you need it and how fast they plan to release updates? There will be the preview program but no idea how quick that will be.

    Unless you have a immediate need I wouldn't bother personally. Can't say what this file manager/file picker will be like in WP8.1 so I'd wait until next week to see then decide.

    I was also thinking same but as N_LaRUE said...next week isn't far away.
    I'll wait little more before buying Pocket File Manager.

    Pocket File Manager already does everything what most of people actually want. It has full access in SD Card, that's it I can access my personal files and I don't beed much now, thank you MS for listening and this might be a signal that MS might create such file manager by own for WP 8.1 .

    As for today, I can confirm that WP 8.1 does not have preloaded integrated file manager app. Do not know how it will be when it is released.

    Are you confirming it because the leaked SDK emulator doesn't have one?

    What kind of NAS? I have a WD one. There's an app for that. Not sure about other brands.

    The WD app works great.
