Editors' Review

Total Commander is a file manager that functions similar to Windows Explorer, but with two fixed windows side by side like file managers for DOS. You can use Total Commander to search, copy, rename, zip, and organize your files. Total Commander has a built-in FTP client, so it can organize files on your home computer while also being able to transfer files to a remote server. Users who create Web pages will find this feature to be one of the program's great benefits.

We're accustomed to viewing and exploring data on our computer with Windows Explorer, so we had to go through a bit of a learning curve to understand what Total Commander does. The interface is basic and has a similar structure to an FTP client. Though we weren't familiar with the program, we've used FTP clients before, and that knowledge helped us get Total Commander up and running. You can use it to search for files and to rename multiple files at once. It features a command line prompt for users who prefer that type of workflow.

This is a 30-day trial version of the software. It installs with no problems, but when we uninstalled it, a 64.9KB folder was left on our C drive. Total Commander is a robust application, but it's more suited for the advanced user than the novice. Programmers and others who are familiar with DOS will be right at home with Total Commander, but everyday users will likely find this program too complicated to use.

"A great application for your computer"

August 11, 2010  |  By manpax08

 |  Version: Total Commander 7.50a

Pros

Have used this application for years. It is so much better than anything windows has. The dual screens are so nice. You can see you files being transferred. It un-zips with ease. The search function works well. I use it all the time

Cons

I really don't have any bad things to say about this product

"I used this program for all transfer,sync,search,dupli"

July 15, 2010  |  By kirosi

 |  Version: Total Commander 7.50a

Pros

Symbian, WinCe and other mobiles can be accessed easily. It can find similar filename or filetype if they are mixed in one map. Easy to sync folders. It can pack/unpack all of the most used standards (zip, 7z,rar + +) FTP download is very easy.

Cons

You have to manually install most of the plugins you want. In TotalCommander Ultima Prime most plugins are already installed. So I have switched to that now.

Summary

It`s easy to have full control over several tabs. You can lock any folder to a tab for easy access to the most used folders. It has a duplicate finder/ remover. It can find similar and different files in two folders. When you copy files into a folder and it detects a similar file/ filename you have a lot of options. My favorite is "Overwrite older versions"

"Suffice to say , TC is so good I paid for it :-)"

May 01, 2010  |  By codasys

 |  Version: Total Commander 7.50a

Pros

double pane, usb and ftp transfers,

!! but the biggest bonus is 'Ctl-B" sorting all files in one list, great for finding files. by size, date, name, etc!!

Cons

would like a "portable" version. not just a U3, or copy of what is on your main computer.

Summary

easy adding of folders, changing names, viewing, editing, I could go on but there is a space limit here :-)

Christian Ghisler has stood by his customers and product all these years. And when new features were needed we received them. Mr Ghisler did for GUI what Norton did for DOS. Thanks.
