"The best I have used so far!"

November 07, 2011  |  By kleinmanfamily

 |  Version: Directory Opus (32-bit) 10.0.2

Pros

Wonderful Video's to help you learn
Easy to use
Trial period was long enough to want to make the investment in buying the product. I didn't feel rushed to make my decision on my purchase.

Cons

A little more then the rest - but you get what you pay for. I did go online and found a discounted price.

"The best Windows Explorer replacement around"

October 30, 2010  |  By jgf_tompkins

 |  Version: Directory Opus (32-bit) 9.5.6

Pros

You can configure Directory Opus in many different ways, so you're sure to find one that works well for you.

Cons

Initially setting up the program and discovering all its features can take a while. I've been using it for years, and am still finding new (and useful) features.

Summary

If you're looking for a Windows Explorer replacement, then look no further!

"Costly but (almost) worth it."

August 11, 2010  |  By mss627

 |  Version: Directory Opus (32-bit) 9.5.4

Pros

One of the few file managers that combines the ease of use of Windows Explorer along with oodles of useful features like directory synchronization, file transfer protocol, multiple directories and more. This is the Cadillac of file managers.

Cons

The price is ridiculous. Especially if you consider that most of the features can be found in freeware albeit in separate programs.

Summary

Many 3rd party file management programs provide some of the features available with directory opus but there always seems to be something that makes you return to explorer. Directory Opus is like explorer on steroids. The features all work flawlessly across all platforms. I use it with XP, Vista and Windows 7 machines. I just think 78 dollars is a lot-a-tomatoes to fork over for what amounts to a fancy File manager. Cut the price in half and I'd give it 5 out of 5.

"Runs circles around explorer"

January 16, 2010  |  By martinex

 |  Version: Directory Opus (32-bit) 9.5.2

Pros

Built in FTP manager. Directory syncronization. Light on system resources.

Cons

Expensive.

Summary

I've tried quite a few explorer clones. This is hands down the best. I'm really surprised Microsoft hasn't stolen it yet.

 |  Version: Directory Opus (32-bit) 9.5

Pros

Do what you want to do with your files without restrictions

Cons

"The most powerful software you will ever own"

May 19, 2009  |  By kenalcock

 |  Version: Directory Opus 9.1.1.8

Pros

Powerful, fast, customizable, portable (run from USB), asthectically pleasing. Supports plug-ins, themes, and custom configurations. User support forum. Constant free support updates between major versions. Integrated viewers and hotkey manager.

Cons

Because it is so feature rich, new users sometimes get overwhelmed. Download it, get a free trial license, check out the user support forum (link in help menu).

Summary

This is the first program I install on my windows computers after installing the operating system. And I never have to use Windows Explorer again.

This program has a lot under the hood. The money you spend on a license is trivial compared to the time it will save you in the long run.

The best place to learn about this program is at the user support forum (link in the help menu), where some of the users have written extensive tutorials. Opus is powerful; it usually not a question of it can or cannot do something, but how top do it with Opus.
