Solutions to common issues

No folders appear

If no folders appear at all in FileBrowser, then some of the network storage may have been detached (perhaps a trasient issue with the provider). Use ElfBot to restart FileBrowser itself, with elfbot restart filebrowser, and then refresh the UI in a few minutes to confirm whether the storage has appeared.

Unable to move files (401 error)

Filebrowser can't move files between /storage/ mounts. Perform a copy, and then a separate delete. However, take care when attempting to copy large files, since (a) storage can be slow, and (b) FileBrowser doesn't give you any feedback re the status of your task, so it's impossible to know whether it's completed a copy or not.
