    "Fast and powerful, much better than Windows Explorer"

    August 31, 2011  |   By the_answer_is_42

    Pros

    Frustrating minutes become seconds.

    ZTree is much faster than Windows Explorer and anything else.

    Makes you the master of your files and directories, does not restrict and frustrate you like Windows Explorer.

    Shows you ALL the info there is.

    Cons

    You need to learn it first. It will take some time to use it efficiently (but this is time well spent)

    Summary

    Paying for a text-based old-fashioned looking application that seems to be doing similar things than the free Windows Explorer? I'd be the last to do that, except: ZTree is excellent and worth every penny.

    Those who grew up with Windows Explorer don't even know how meek and bad and frustrating it is. Once you're good at using ZTree you will feel sorry for all the time you had wasted with Windows Explorer and all the files you have lost.

    Examples: In which sub-folder was that darned word file again I wrote last week? In Explorer you will have to click yourself through folders or fight with the cumbersome and slow search function.

    In Ztree you press B and all files of the whole branch (with all sub-folders) show up in under a second. Press F and then *.doc and you only see word files. Still can't find your file? Press ALT&S, D and all is sorted by change date. At the end of the list you'll find your doc.
