  1. Hmm, no responses. Well, I've finally got something that solved my issue.


    This is worth for everyone who is annoyed with current win. explorer (even with classic shell).

    http://www.gpsoft.com.au/

    Have a thousand different ways to customize it.

    Ease of use: As far as possible, Opus works just like Explorer does. You don't have to learn any complicated scripting or non-standard mouse techniques to use Opus. If you've ever used Explorer to copy a file, you already know exactly how to do it in Opus as well.
    Configurability: We believe in the user's right to choose how their computer operates. You'll find that almost every aspect of Opus can be changed - from the buttons on the toolbar to the color used to draw the background of a compressed file. Of course you don't have to configure anything if you don't want to - "out of the box" Opus provides a comprehensive set of commands that will let you perform most file management tasks without ever going near the configuration.
    Efficiency: Opus is designed to be as efficient as possible. The entire program makes use of multi-threading to ensure that you should never have to wait for one operation to complete before beginning another.
    Compatibility: As an Explorer Replacement it's important that Opus appears (to the system) just like Explorer does. Within the limits set by Microsoft, Opus achieves this and most software written with only Explorer in mind will still work fine with Opus installed.

    There are far too many features to list them all here, but to name a few:

    Print or export folder listings, copy file listings to the clipboard, calculate folder sizes
    Single or dual file displays, with single or dual trees, make navigating and manipulating files a breeze
    Folder tabs let you keep multiple folders open and switch quickly between them
    Integrated viewer pane lets you preview many common image and document file formats
    View and edit file metadata (EXIF, MP3, PDF, etc)
    Sorting, grouping, filtering and searching has never been easier
    Color code or rate your files and folders to make them easier to find
    Batch renaming including the option for a fully scripted rename using metadata
    Support for FTP, Zip, 7-Zip, RAR and many other archive formats
    Built-in tools including synchronize, duplicate file finder, image converter and uploader and more
    Queue multiple file copies for improved performance
    Support for CD/DVD burning
    Support for the latest Windows 7 features including jumplists and indexed search
    Fully configurable user interface - toolbars, keyboard hotkeys and much more can be tailored to suit your needs
    Efficient, multi-threaded, modern design
    Supports Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 in both 32 and 64 bit versions
  2. Best is IMHO for me Q-Dir, comes x64 + portable too. And it is free. With folder size without scanning all the time when u change the window.

    Here is a freeware Folder Size tool for you. I like the fact that it is very fast and updates Largest Files and Largest Folders reports instantly while navigating:
  4. Well, I know about it, but there are better, as good as Q-dir, and it was long ago now :P

    Thanx tho ...
