I have used the following

Stardock Enhanced File Dialog - adds some icons and options, allows to edit the 'places' bar
Directfolders - adds some icons and buttons, allows to edit the 'places' bar. makes windows resizable (most), remembers settings and position etc.
Powerdesk dialoghelper - adds some icons, tracking of files and folders, adds a viewer
Wirekeys' files plugin - puts a very discrete bar to jump to favorites (and a few other functions) to the file dialogs, explorer, and total commander

I'm also curious about resortlabs' handy folders - mostly because i like their other 2 apps I had to look at it.

handy folders - adds a toolbar in dialogues, in normal explorer, has a taskbar icon. These are movable like normal menu bars, via the normal view menu. Offers offer a way to save/define the file extension filters which I have not seen elsewhere.

So each of them adds some features that are nice, and lacks some features that others have  :-\

Flashfolder doesn't seem to work under Windows 7
Which alternative Freeware Favorites program would you recommend for Win7?
Find+Run Robot 2.90.01
Windows 7

i recall checking this program for Win7 compatibility when i was testing out the Win7 RC but the author didn't give a timeline of when he was going to implement support for Win7. btw, the link to Flashfolder's page gives me 404 error, anyone else having the same problem?

FlashFolder (http://www.zett42.de/flashfolder/).
[...]
    * Total CommanderĀ® directory menu can be displayed instead of FlashFolders own favorites
[...]
I should also warn you that Vista isn't yet supported.

Has there been any development in file box extenders lately, particularly ones for Vista?  In particular, do recent versions of FlashFolder work on Vista, as I'd like its Total Commander feature?  The FlashFolder Web site has gone, which doesn't bode well.
