Update for MIUI version 11.0.5.0 is available at this moment!
I'm trying to download it (stops several times).
When installed, I report here if the Google plugin will work.

After update to MIUI 11.0.5.0 Google drive access is not working. Removed and re-installed the app but same message pops up:
Another operation is running in the background.

If we can help debug the app on MIUI (or these particular phones), please give us instructions and we'll do our best.

It could be a problem with power saving. Try excluding totalcmd-drive from power saving options in Android settings.

Selected NO LIMITATIONS in power saving option for Totalcmd-drive, restarted the phone and tried to open the drive folder. Same popup appears: Another operation is running in the background.

Are you able to open any other plugins, like LAN or FTP? You don't need to create any connection, just try to open the plugin.

The LAN plugin works 100%, Up- and download files from/to my NAS disk works without any problem.
In a normal displayed Total-cmd folder it is possible to long tap a file and choose: send to > Save in drive. This also works perfect.
Only login and downloading from Google drive via the plugin doesn't work.

FTP plugin is not installed on my phone because I have no application for it.

Any updates on this? Previously it worked perfectly, but I don't know if I updated TotalCMD or MIUI and it no longer works properly.

I can confirm that the LAN plugin doesn't work either, or I don't know how to use it.
It asks me to enter a name, and whether I input an IP address or a name, it just adds this network share, and when I click on it, it tries to read from LAN/192.168.1.10 or LAN/name.
Maybe this could help?

You're right Quaresma. When trying to re-configurate the LAN plugin (I changed the subnet) I discovered that I could not edit the IP-adress. By making a new entry, I only could type the name for the network share. No configuration screen pops up. So it seems the LAN plugins is not working om Pocophone F1.

This is caused by the power saving functions of your phone - background apps like plugins are not allowed to open dialogs on certain devices, e.g. Xiaomi.

Solution: You need to install the current beta version:
https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.ghisler.android.TotalCommander

You also need the latest LAN plugin 1.09 for this to work. The plugin asks Total Commander to open the dialog for it, which works because Total Commander is in the foreground.
