Εναλλακτικοί file managers

Recommended Posts

Υπάρχει ένας πολύ εξελιγμένος "file manager", ο xplorer², που

τον χρησιμοποιώ εδώ και αρκετό καιρό. Αν θέλετε preview των αρχείων,

dual-pane λειτουργία για να βλέπετε δύο folders ταυτόχρονα, και διάφορα

άλλα που δεν κάνει ο Windows Explorer (χωρίς κάποια plugins) τότε είστε

στο σωστό σημείο. Κατεβάστε από εδώ την δωρεάν έκδοση ή αγοράστε την

"επαγγελματική" εδώ για €20. Το καλύτερο το άφησα για το τέλος. Η εφαρμογή

είναι γραμμένη από έλληνα, το Νίκο Μποζίνη. Η εταιρεία είναι η Zavarakatranemia

και το site www.zabkat.com.

 

Overview of features

  • Shell namespace explorer

     

    xplorer² will browse and manage all your folders including virtual

    ones folders like zipfolders, webfolders, even FTP, as long as these

    services are available in your system. If you extend your shell

    namespace with new folder types, xplorer² will read them too, in a

    familiar tree/view window format. snapshot

     

     

  • Tabbed dual-pane interface

     

    Can't

    decide between dual pane and tabbed browsing? No worries, xplorer² does

    them all. The traditional dual-pane format, handy for comparisons and

    file transfers, is augmented so that each pane can hold more than one

    folder. Hopping from one folder to another is just a tab click away. snapshot

     

     

  • Instant preview of files

     

    xplorer² can preview most text, graphics, audio/video, and html & office documents — and does so in nearly all folder types including zipfolders etc. Wherever it finds file-like content it offers file-like access!

  • View & edit text files

     

    xplorer²

    collaborates with our companion editor² offering no-frills — yet useful

    — text viewing and editing, in a variety of formats (RTF, unicode, UTF8

    etc). You can also associate your own external editor of choice. snapshot

     

     

  • Extended file information

     

    On

    top of the usual names, sizes & dates, xplorer² can access extended

    file information like comments, version information, picture data etc,

    as supported by your Windows OS (shell column handlers). It even has

    useful columns of its own like file checksum, 8.3 names etc. If you

    install any custom column handlers they will be integrated too! snapshot

     

     

  • Search for files everywhere, using arbitrary criteria

     

    The search engine is the most powerful in the market this side of $70! xplorer² can search in all

    folder types including zipfolders etc, and the criteria can include

    each and every bit of extended file information combined in boolean hyperfilters.

    If you want to find files that contain some keyword in their comment,

    and are owned by a particular user, and are songs by an artist formerly

    known as prince, then look no further! When you search for contained

    text, the previewer panel will show you the text hilighted in context too.

  • Find text within office, Adobe PDF and other documents

     

    xplorer²

    can work with text filters developed for windows indexing service,

    allowing you to search for keywords within all your document archive.

    Plain text previews of such proprietary formats are possible too,

    hilighting your search results in context.

     

     

  • Manage files from many folders simultaneously

     

    xplorer² has a special kind of window called scrap

    container where you can place files from many folders and deal with

    them all at once — like the find files result list, except that you

    control what goes in. You can save and reload scrap lists, organizing

    your content regardless of its physical location. You can even browse

    folders flat, recursively including all their subfolders! snapshot

     

     

  • Compare and synchronize folders

     

    In dual pane

    mode xplorer² can show the contents of 2 folders in a single window,

    ideal for comparing and synchronizing content. Using scrap containers

    you can compare folder hierarchies, too. snapshot

     

     

  • Discover and cleanup duplicate files

     

    xplorer²

    can check a local hierarchy (or even all your folders) for identical

    files and mark them ready for inspection and eventually deletion,

    releasing your valuable disk space. snapshot

     

     

  • Execute DOS commands and scripts

     

    When

    file management calls for more advanced external commands, xplorer²

    will oblige with its template-based user menu system. You just provide

    a command template and it is automatically applied to all selected

    files. Thus you can achieve mass renaming and so much more.

  • Customizable user interface

     

    There

    are plenty of adjustable options to bring xplorer² in line with your

    needs and tastes, from how many panels you see, which commands appear

    on toolbars, all the way to how many decimal points you want for file

    sizes. You can arrange the user interface to be as simple or as complex

    as you like. snapshot

     

     

  • Help and assistance where you need it

     

    In

    addition to a comprehensive help file, daily tips & tricks etc,

    xplorer² has a tooltip (balloon help) system that guides you through

    the more complex steps of command arguments without disturbing your

    workflow. snapshot

     

     

  • Individual folder settings

     

    You

    can instruct xplorer² to show particular folders in fixed view modes,

    e.g. MyPictures in thumbnail mode, WinNT in detailed mode including a

    version column etc. You can also save window layouts to be reused for all folders that e.g. have visual content you want to preview.

     

     

     

  • Visual filters and selection engine

     

    xplorer² helps you manage large folders easily, first controlling which items are visible — with a variety of wildcard and other filters, and then selecting

    the items you want to act upon with precision. There are too many

    selection techniques to list, including hyperfilter-based that allow

    you to select e.g. all items with "science" in their comments!

     

     

     

  • Advanced file management

     

    Except for

    the basic drag-drop, context menu, copy, delete, rename etc, xplorer²

    has a palette of advanced file management commands like split-merge,

    shred, set comments, touch dates, paste subfolders or hard links, etc.

     

     

     

  • Robust file transfers

     

    xplorer² can

    handle many parallel background file transfers (concurrent or queued)

    offering fine control over confirmations, error handling etc. You can

    copy large amounts of files with ease and peace of mind. snapshot

     

     

  • Export folder listings

     

    Whatever you see in xplorer² can be exported as text for printing,

    e-mailing, pasting in other programs, etc. You can also export

    statistics for whole folder hierarchies, in detailed tree-like fashion.

     

     

     

  • Maxed-out usability

     

    Mostly and

    foremostly xplorer² is meant to be used day in and day out with maximum

    efficiency and minimum frustration. Its keyboard and mouse shortcuts,

    histories for most input fields, path autocompletion and many other

    small details, work together to offer you a comfortable and productive

    experience!
