Putting it quite simply if you need to do any amount of file manipulation, this is the program for you. Previously I used windows explorer, xyCommander and Q-dir depending on my needs. This has features to make all of them seem blah! Try playing with adding ribbons (you need to rename the ribbon file to rename the ribbon) or having sets of tabs – small learning curve but well worth it. The zip functions are amazingly fast (probably all other file functions as well, but I haven’t done enough to check for sure). The search results were impressive too: did a search for *.jpg across two partions on an SSD drive and a single partition on a 2TB hard drive. It found over 10,000 files in seconds (and I don’t use windows indexing).
No question I’ll be buying a license.
