Files and folders can be copied, moved or deleted over the context menu. Alternatively, you can also use the appropriate instructions in the Toolbar.
If you connected external storage media to your computer after booting O&O FileExplorer, you need to restart O&O FileExplorer so that all connected drives will be recognized.

If you right-click a drive under Properties you will find information about its total capacity as well as information regarding the drive's free and used capacity.
