    My problem is finally solved!

    To make a long story, less long....

    - I installed FTP Server (Banana Studio) on my Android box and established a link to the attached external HDD
    - I previously added a "Network Link" in Windows File Explorer with the android FTP IP address and port. I click on this link and Voila - the external HDD is showing and I can move files back and forth.

    It's simple and easy.

    Thank you everyone for all your suggestions.

    How would it be "easiest" since FileZilla Server for Android doesn't exist?
    On a PC obviously....

    Have you actually tried it to see if it would?
    i did yes.
    i used Bluestacks for win.

    Caveat: the device I was doing it on is only running Android Marshmellow. That may or may not have any bearing on why it doesn't work for me.
    Sorry it didn't work for you, perhaps you did it wrong.

    I still stand by my advice to attach the external HDD to the Windows 10 PC (and not the Android Box) for EASILY adding and removing files from the external HDD (without having to constantly connect/disconnect the drive between the PC and the Android Box) using Windows and then using Windows 10 DLNA (or MediaMonkey) to make the files available to the Android Box via the LAN. There is nothing complicated about how that works.
    Looks like it worked with another ftp software for dsscottage.
