I highly recommend ZTree, you can get it as a 30 day trial at www.ztree.com
In the olden days I also used Norton Commander, but I used mostly XTree.(DOS
und it's not made anymore) Ztree is a new development vaguely based on Xtree
and it is constantly worked on and updated, like the commander, Ztree can
also show 2 directories, hardrives etc. (just hit F8) and copy, move,
rename, graft etc. from one to the other. It runs under all
Windows-Versions, even Vista. Commands are entered with the keyboard.
btw, I am not working for, nor affiliated with Ztree,
I just think this program is great. Try it, you'll like it!
