Outdated, but still the best file manager.

As an enthusiastic user of CubicExplorer (since 2013) I just mounted (portable) CubicExplorer on my 3rd PC. Love the drives bar (optional), bookmarks-favorites panel (optional), v.customizable GUI, Save Sessions, save history, toolbars can populated with more tools than available in WinExp The Context Menu (inherited from WinExp) is incomplete especially 3rd party items, but not critical for me. With a lot of; programs, files, WinExp windows open ... task bar gets very crowded. CubEx is a handy, easily seen in taskbar, extra files-manager without being too overblown with bells and whistles.

The real usefulness of this program depends on two things:

  1. You have a lot of files on your computer on all different topics
  2. You want to be able to access them quickly and in a customizable format

If you're in this position, the bookmarking system in CubicExplorer isn't just intelligent, it's genius. Arranging files, web links, and programs by topical trees is just such a fantastic feature, once you start using it, there's just no going back. I can't believe how it simplified my work at more than one job now, giving me quick access to the wealth of tools and information on my machine. Although the program has some minor issues like an undo function, file preview, and the fact that it appears to have ended development, it's irreplaceable. Hopefully someone picks up the open code for this project and continues work. Just as I donated to the original project, I'd definitely give to it's successor.
