Brilliant app…

… worth every penny, but additional payment for ”advenced FTP” functionality is a hit below the belt.
These functions should be available in the normal Pro license.

If you manage a lot of files...

Positive Comment by cwfrizzell
about Directory Opus May 2015

...DOpus is more than worth every penny. It is the most diverse, flexible and robust file manager on the planet. Where it shines:

Dual Pane
Tabs
Mass renaming
Scripting
Copy queue
FTP handling
Customization
File Search
Windows integration
Archive support
Synchronization

Where it lags:

Tagging/search: dependent on Windows Search which does not recognize some tagged file types
Directory Comparison: Not as fast as other file managers
Encryption: only available for archived files

Can it improve? Yes. Will it continue to improve? Absolutely. With a vibrant community and engaged developers, DOpus is tough to beat... At any price.

Brilliant but expensive and per installation licence

Comment by wonea
about Directory Opus Oct 2012

Brilliant but read the T&C's, it's per installation licence. So moving a machine and your likely to have to pay again. To quote the website 'Directory Opus is licenced on a per-machine basis.'

* Update 13/02/2013 - I stand corrected. Happily using my Pro licence on my personal laptop and work laptop seperately.

Upgrades are waaay too expensive

Negative Comment by mmckaibab
about Directory Opus Jun 2012

I've had earlier versions of Directory Opus and it's the best thing out there. But $50 for an upgrade for a file utility is waaay too pricey. Time to find something more reasonable or just live with DO 9

about Directory Opus and ConvertXtoDVD, DAEMON Tools, File Explorer Apr 2012

Love this app, puts explorer to shame.
i found that the following theme/Skin made it so much easier to access its full potential
[KODC skin](http://resource.dopus.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=8486 )

Theme adds the following pre made buttons for this app
with a single click you can do the following

  • Advanced Rename Buttons (for files/folders names)

    • converts all Dots/Underscores to spaces

      • remove all brackets and whats inside of them.



        • Capitalise file names


        • trim/add digits/characters



  • Create New folders based on filenames

  • Easily create listing of all files within a folder
  • Send files directy to other software (daemon tools/convertXtodvd/MP3Tag)

--------too much to mention

This is not a cheap program, but it is worth every dime. Excellent file manager, duplicate finder, media player, photo viewer ftp agent and so much more. I find new items all the time, they have a demo if you need a program like this and you do need it.

Anyone who needs a file handling tool owes it to themselves to try Dopus. There is no better tool on any platform.
