Total Commander 8.0

Total Commander Editor's Review

Well known as a file manager replacement for Windows Explorer, Total Commander keeps surprising us with new handy features: 
flat buttons on Windows XP and Vista, new file list icons, drive icons, bar icons, Lister with support for text cursor, allows to center images, and resize only larger, show drive letter in folder tabs, more options in copy overwrite dialog: Compare by content, Rename target, automatic rename, copy all smaller or all larger. 

Total Commander supports ZIP, ARJ, LZH, RAR, UC2, TAR, GZ, CAB, ACE archive handling. The program is completely pluginable: the setup package comes with packer, file system, lister and content plug-ins. You can also get plug-ins for pretty much anything you wish to do: from burning disks to extracting sound and frames from AVI files.

Like the old Norton Commander and Win Commander, the two file windows side by side make it very easy to copy, paste, compare directories, upload and download files to FTP servers. 

Another nice feature is the fact that once the "File system plug-ins " installed, you can have access to whole file systems via the Network Neighborhood, e.g. to a PocketPC device or a Linux file partition. 
The interface is very user friendly and completely customizable, from buttons to fonts. 

Pluses: Customizable right click menu for Windows Explorer fans, tabbed interface, regular expression search; pluginable, built-in FTP client with FXP (server to server) and HTTP proxy support, parallel port link, multi-rename tool, tabbed interface, etc.

Drawbacks / flaws: 

In conclusion: An advanced, powerful and totally configurable file management tool both for beginners and advanced users that can make your life so much easier, expecially when you're working with files on a daily basis.
