Goodbye

It worked great in my Win XP days....nowadays it just loads for ages and doesn't work as fine as it did....I'm on win7 and as the previous previewer mentioned: I guess I might have to go through various options to make it cool for me again....but I don't have the time and I don't think that's the point - it's supposed to be a fast tool that facilitates things that Windows can't be smart enough to provide, right ? RIP, I'll miss you.

Top choice for professional KM

It's main benefits are that it's reliable and free so you don't have to hesitate to try it out. It has very few limitations, and fewer QUIRKS than Total Commander. It takes 5-10 hours to master - well worth the investment. Start with one panel and the tree and set it to open in a new window so that it works conventionally and you won't have to start out thinking the up to 4 panes are a pain.

FİLE MANAGEMENT/DOSYA YÖNETİMİ+

WİNDOWS: TOTAL COMMANDER

I’ve been using for years to management of my files, copying and moving files in order (Teracopy’s function), syncinc files, backing up my files to external disk in easy and reliable mehtod (for me), with FTP Client i can transfer files with my Android Phone which app that provides FTP server feature and syncing my files over FTP with-out cable, with Wi-fi, batch file – folder renaming… Best in class. May need some settings to take shape of how you want…

FREE ALTERNATİVE: Free Commander. Almost can everything that TC’s handle.

ANDROİD: MİXPLORER

A File Manager that includes FTP server feature and a app that handle alomost everything which other apps handle. I meet this app with very late because it was NOT in Google Play. It’s paid but in XDA Developers it’s free as APK. Alternative: Solid Explorer also fine but it i’m in more comfort with MixPlorer.


WİNDOWS: TOTAL COMMANDER
Senelerdir dosyalarımı düzenlemek, sıralı şekilde taşımak – kopyalama işleminin idaresini sağlamak (Teracopy’nin özelliği), dosya senkronizasyonu ve yedeklerimi en zahmetsiz ve en sorunsuz şekilde alabilmek harici diske almak, FTP istemcisi sayesinde FTP sunucusu şeklindeki Android cihazımı senkronize etmek ve dosya alışverişi yapabilmek Wi-Fi üzerinden, toplu dosya ve klasör isimlendirmek için kullanıyorum. Alanında bence en iyisi. Programı yükledikten sonra ayarlar menüsünü biraz kurcalamanız faydanıza olacaktır.
Ücretsiz Windows Alternatifi: FreeCommander. Neredeyse tamamen aynı işleri yapabiliyor.

ANDROİD: MİXPLORER

Son zamanlarda keşfettiğim, yaklaşık bir senedir kullandığım ama Google Play’de olmadığı zamanlarda XDA Develepors’da var olan, epey eski bir program ve epey işlevsel. Android için en iyisi diyebilirim. FTP sunucusu özelliği benim için hayati değer taşıyor dosya transferi için. Google Play’de ücretli, XDA Developers’ta ücretsiz. Alternatif: Solid Explorer. Ama MixPlorer varken gerekli mi bilmiyorum.

We're in a period where applications are being dumbed-down and we're told that adding a dark theme to something is a great new feature.

On the other hand power users need functionality and FreeCommander is brimming with features. I couldn't live without it.

Be patient and take some time to learn the application and learn to use shortcuts to speed up file management. FreeCommander is Technic Lego and Explorer is Duplo.

My favourite file manager on Windows!

about FreeCommander · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

FreeCommander XE is a very likable file manager for Windows. Its main problem is that all of its features are enabled by default so it's very cluttered at first. Once you plow through the various (unfortunately quite unintuitive) preferences dialogs and disable pretty much everything (tabs, all toolbars but the topmost, etc) and tone down the maybe-it-looked-modern-15-years-ago color scheme (you have to change this in more than 10 different places to make it look consistent unless you like the default), you get a very clean, yet powerful file manager, great for everyday use.

At least it's free

When copying files, I'm missing features. Apart for the Windows default options, it only let's you overwrite either older files or smaller files currently. No combination of the two (for example). You also only get an explicit filter ("only these file types"), but no exclusive ("all but these types") one (like don't copy "Thumbs.db" files and such).

Also neither a speed indicator (MB/s) or time estimation ("x minutes left", ...).

By default it's also using the default Windows dialog, so without going into the settings, you won't even see these advanced options. Makes you wonder - isn't the Explorer already easy enough to use? Does anyone really download file managers to make anything easier? I would think only power users download these programs, because they feel limited in their possibilities. So why hide the advanced features like that?

To top it off: during a long copy process my PC went into standby. That never happens with the default Windows Explorer.

FreeCommander can show foldersize and sort by foldersize

about FreeCommander · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Beside many other useful functions FreeCommander shows (also sorted) how much space the files and directories consume on your disk drives, similar to JDiskReport or TreeSizeFree, but as opposed to "Treesize Free" also on network disk drives.
To sort the folders using the size of folders you must select "Size of folders" in the menu "Folder":

Other useful features:

Compress and unzip, file editor, editable directory favorites, editable program favorites, comparing directories, easy access to system directories, computer administration, desktop, startmenue, editable toolbar: secure delete, multiple rename, ....
