    "Best file manager EVER!!"

    December 18, 2013  |   By kamull01

    Version: WinNc 5.9

    Pros

    - Easy to use (once you get the hang of it)
    - Indispensable for synchronization
    - Can be portable
    - Provision for multiple toolbars, all customizable
    - Can create panel states
    - Allows for project tabs
    - Can customize the display
    - Can run multiple instances to suit different needs
    - Designed for Windows 7 and Windows 8 special folders
    - Speedy
    - Live updates, if registered
    - Can create virtual links
    - File viewer supporting popular formats
    - Can run parallel tasks
    - Slideshower, audio player, cd/dvd burner
    - Can compress and uncompress
    - Can create self-extracting zip files
    - Creates file lists
    - Encrypts/Decrypts
    - Copies, Deletes, Moves Files & Folders, creates links, searches
    - Can change file attributes
    - Can split or merge files
    - FTP capability
    - Can report problems easily (developers respond!!)
    - Can save configurations allowing multiple uses

    If you don't need or use every function, it's easy to pick and choose just what is useful to you.

    Cons

    It needs a much better help function. But, don't let this deter you. The display is intuitive and it doesn't take long to learn. And, veteran users are known to help others out via the WinNc forum. [WinNc has a large following].

    Summary

    There isn't much that the developers haven't thought of, as you can tell by the list of PROs above. I was a Norton Commander user long, long ago and found the two-panel file management format so easy to use. I found WinNc when DOS faded from the scene and I have become a devotee. I started out with 3.0 and have continued through versions 4, 5, and now 6. I can't do without it. WinNc is currently at 6.1.0.0 and has kept abreast of all the Windows 0/S versions -- it's a superb replacement for Windows Explorer.

    "I have loved WINNC for years!"

    October 19, 2009  |   By Holidave

    Version: WinNc 4.8

    Pros

    I don't go anywhere without it. I bought a copy for my desktop and one for portable use. Of course I remove it after using at another computer. I tried using Q-Dir and even tho it is very nice and gives up to 4 screens, I still prefer WINNC.

    Cons

    Nothing at all.

    Summary

    I just love it.

    "WindExplorer kept crashing, could save files and has mp3 ripper, file compressor"

    October 16, 2007  |   By Goldernie

    Version: WinNc 4.4d

    Pros

    My windows explores was busted, any attempt to move, copy, rename etc files would trigger the "this program has encountered a problem and will terminate" message. im gonna reinstall windows to fix this, i ve only been working on this computer one week so i don't have too many files on it, but the ones i do have to save were busted because i couldn't move them! ahhh here comes this software to my aid, now i just move the files to a flash drive and bye bye old ******-up windows. Plus it has mp3 ripper and a file compressor that creates self extractors :) haven't try them though, maybe they are not available in the demo version.

    "A Work in Progress"

    September 18, 2005  |   By MrScottG

    Version: WinNc 4.4d

    Pros

    I used WinNC.Net for a day to Windows Explorer became unstable. This program did its job, allowing me to manage files through software other than the MS brand. There are a large number of excellent features here that would have taken me several days to sort and learn.

    Cons

    The developers probably should have focused on the ease of use for the most basic and common usages and perfected this before adding all those features. As described in an earlier review, files can not be dragged-and-dropped within the same frame. That is functionality which has been standard in Windows Explorer after (I think) Windows 3. That, however, is just one example. What really bothered me the most is that WinNC.Net assumes I will always be copying a file instead of moving one. I move files a *lot* more often to copying them, but to do so in WinNC.Net was a pain. I had to either type in the new location manually or else copy the file, reselect the original file, and then manually delete it. According to the Help File, I should press the Shift Key while dragging in order to move a file without copying. Guess what -- the Shift Key trick simply doesn't work. I'm certain there is a way to fix this entire mess by customizing the options to my preferences, but I can't find it.

    I have switched to Xplorer2 freeware version, and I'm quite happy with that less robust but more usable file manager.

    "Allround computer and file manager"

    August 14, 2005  |   By alderliefste

    Version: WinNc 4.4d

    Pros

    It's a very handy tool for lots of things; i especially like the functions for the different types of file compression and unpacking (zip, rar etc.), but also for musicfiles like conversion of mp3 and wav files. The synchronization of the content of directories and maps, ftp-interface and pictureviewer are also nice. The rest of the program has a comparable functionality as Windows Explorer, only with a better interface due to the two screens which make the copy, replace and all other filehandling very easy and synoptic. Automatic updates come in frequently.

    Cons

    It's inconvenient to work on a computer without WinNc, because on my own computer it has become my central workspace for almost everything. I don't appreciate Explorer anymore...

    I complained at their helpdesk for the problem of replacing large directories at once (more than 20GB), but after 6 hours I got answered their working on that in next version. With all the pro's this is just a small and temporary con.
