Well, to be honest: I don’t know much about Windows Explorer, really. It might as well be a nice tool, after all. I’ll check it more thouroughly when I have some time.
In the meantime, I’m just curious about few things:
Can you manage your files without using the mouse?
Can you upload files to ftp?
Can you have two identical drives/files on both sides to copy from C: to C:?
When you are about to overwrite something does it give you the option to overwrite only older files (useful for backup)?
The only reason for me to use something like TC is when i hacked an XP or w3k server that has disabled the windows explorer, you can disable that to specific users or members of groups where this feature is disabled.
Unfortunately, MS or admins can’t lock out all possibilities that can explore drives or network mappings.
Personally it’s already heaven if i can break out a DOS prompt, then i can use windows explorer after logging on as Null.
Normally I use Total Commander, but I just checked out DirectoryOpus and it’s a very nice app. Only problem with it is that if you click on contacts, it tries to load up Windows Messenger, and gets it to autostart (if you’ve disabled it).
There’s another one, called ABCommander (http://www.winability.com/abcommander/).
i’m a happy internet explorer user! (yeye, microsoft rulez! ) working with multiple explorer windows and hotkeys is efficient enough for me. couldn’t think of any faster method.
and the GUIs of these “xyz-commander-tools” always make me wanna run, run far far away
and FTP-wise, i prefer a true FTP client like smartFTP.
