    Viewing Folder in Root Explorer

    O.K. I've been using Root Explorer for a while now and I need to find out how to view the contents of some files that give me the message: "The file is too large to display in full so is only partially displayed". These are the files with the gold shield and star. Is there some way that I can plug my phone into my notebook and use a word processing application or notepad to view them? Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Yes you can drag these files to your PC and view on there. What size are the files and what are they?

    One of them is system/bin. If i mount my phone to my pc it shows mostly my SD card files but these are in linux file structure. Please lead me step by step on this. Thanks.

    Are you rooted? Are you trying to modify files in /system/bin?

    Yeah, I'm rooted. I've just wanted to view the contents of these files for a while now. I don't plan on altering them in any way.

    Ya since android is Linux based they're Linux files. Not sure how to change them to windows or if its even possible.

    Well, is there some app that I can download that will allow me to view them because ADB will only list them, as far as I know i can't view them with ADB.

    Well they don't open in any file viewer on the phone. Not sure if Linux will help decode it.
