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.

Brilliant but expensive and per installation licence

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.

That's not quite the case.

If you move machines, you can move your Opus installation to the new machine. You would only need to pay again if you wanted to use Opus on BOTH machines at once.

(There is, currently at least, no activation system in place either, so even if your first machine breaks and you can't uninstall Opus from it, you will have no problems using your existing licence to install Opus on a second.)

Opus Pro includes a free licence for an additional personal laptop.

The USB export licence ("portable version") provides a cheap way to use Opus on additional machines.

Finally, people using virtual machines need only have one Opus licence for the whole physical machine.

(Note: I work on Opus.)

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.
