Android file system etc.

Just got ,for a relative, Samsung Galaxy tablet, which has a 32Gig micro SD card.Android is the O/S. For my W7 I use the classic filing system of "My Documents" with sub and sub sub folders for photos, Word, Music etc. Also all discs etc are formatted to NTFS. Is there a built in "Windows Explorer" style filing system with Android and does one (if so how) format micro SD cards to NTFS? If not is there a good free app? Back ups will be done via cloud or via drop-box to another PC, but is there a "Acronis True Image" equivalent for Android?

For file management the Galaxy should have the My Files app built in. How to use my files. This is similar to Windows Explorer.

Back up is primarily via Kies to pc. Data can be backed up/synced via dropbox, etc.

Not sure about the format question.

I use File Manager HD from Rhythm Software on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 and found it to be very effective and very much like using Windows Explorer. Look in Play Store.

compumac . Thanks. Also I am looking at Notpod which, I believe, allows syncing with iTunes.

Kies should be able to import music from iTunes and import into the tablet. But have a look at Easy Phone Sync and Google Play Store. I haven't used it but reviews are not bad. Although it states phone it should work for tablet too.
