    best 'file manager' you've used? no needs/requirements here

    no needs/requirements no this cos it's really not that important

    i dont use it much anyway, as good softwares would cover various common needs of ''file managers'

    i use 'xplorer2' atm but i know its no the best one out there

    no needs/requirements besides the basic stuff such as:

    * actively updated (in a significant/meaningful way)

    * just the general basics like it's good

    ill just download the recommendations and do some testing

    Clover Brings Chrome-Style Tabs to Windows Explorer

    If you want to try it out, un-check everything during setup, to avoid adware.

    After testing many file managers... I've come to much prefer **Q-Dir**.

    4 panes has proven to be so much more practical than 2 panes.

    I use it multiple times per day... and it always performs well.

    **4 panes**
    yea this is likely the most important or one of the most important features of a good 'file manager'

    this is defintely one of the various issues/problems/limits for when i do actually use x2

    anyone know of any others with 4 or more panels? or simply with something new/innovative that is a better way of doing things?


    any other important & helpful features when it comes to 'file managers' that very few things have?

    I like FreeCommander XE. Been using it for a few years now. Only 2 pane, but that doesn't bother me since I want only 1.

    I can recommend MultiCommander -- as it is one of the few file managers that allows you to retain date/time stamps when copying files or folders. And, it is free.
