one of my favorite features in directory opus is the display of folder sizes.

xyplorer has this feature BUT it's not quite usable yet imho, because it doesnt transparently scan and update folder sizes in a background thread the way dir opus does.  this is a deal breaker for me.

i'd like to see it do folder size reporting like dir opus: basically the program operates entirely normally and with no waiting, but in the background when you are in a folder it starts calculating and displaying folder sizes.. if you change directories at any time its completely seamless.  so there is no reason to "cancel" from directory sizing or wait for it to complete like you do in xyplorer.

Oh la la! This is actually a bug! I just fixed it. Now the shown folder sizes are updated on the fly when any byte down in some subfolder is added or removed. If that's all you need... Cool

[upload of fixed version probably tomorrow]

One question: if the list is currently sorted by Size, how does DO achieve the correct sort order before it knows the folder sizes?

it loads them alphabetically first & then sorts them acording to size - this can take a while if the folders are very large

Thanks. Sounds natural. And, BTW, not so extremely "seamless"...  Wink

Thanks DonL. Kindly include these two features. The day that's done, I'll buy your XYPlorer.

Breadcrumbs feature is self explanatory. ...
Hi Sri,

The day has come. Maybe... I made it not exactly as what you are having in mind (I think)... but better (I think, again)! Wink

The XYplorer breadcrumb has three revolutionary features:
  •         It's a breadcrumb that takes no screenspace at all (if you
            don't want it to). It works without toolbar, addressbar, whatever
            bar. Simply press <Ctrl+Backspace> to have it pop up.
  •         It's a breadcrumb that's manageable by keyboard-only. Even
            one-handedly when using the right-hand Ctrl-key!
  •         It's a breadcrumb that goes not only back up but also back down.


Get the latest BETA version the XY BETA Club http://www.xyplorer.com and check it out.

As an adamant keyboard user, I'm tickled pink with your implementation.  You've always been kind enough to cater to keyboard and mouse users alike, I was curious to see how you'd do it -- hopefully the mousies are as happy as I am. smiley

Just had to update this review. The 5.20.0022 version of XYplorer now let you do two really cool things:
(1) Drag-n-drop text and images from your browser (Outlook, PDF file) onto the tree or file list and it will automatically create a renameable text file; and
(2) You can extract/copy the data from any previewed file and post to a container client.

I'd add that it now uses even less memory, but isn't that always a goal of any program? No? It should be.

Me likee!

DonL: I tried the latest beta (5.10.0032) and see that the auto remember only works partially.

Watch this screencast to see what I mean.
Sri,

have you checked the latest BETA? Ctrl+Backspace pops the breadcrumb.

To whom it may concern (probably those who are afraid of BETA versions):

XYplorer 5.20 is pleased to announce its official release.

http://www.xyplorer.com/

Special Note of special interest
With version 5.20 XYplorer finally got rid of its GDI+ dependency!
XYplorer now runs on systems without GDIplus (even on Win95).

ahoi!

Little update on XYplorer:

The trial period has been extended to 30 days, and there’s an Xmas related price discount of 25% through December, so the license now costs only EUR 22.50 (USD 29.50, GBP 15.50)!

cheers,
Don

Yep, and it's great!!
I've been lurking in the forums of XYplorer while this was being developed and was amazed how fast Don implemented this and fixed the bugs that updates brought! I must say i'm a happy owner of XY cheesy

Yeah - I hadn't been aware of the beta club (thanks for sending me off for a look) and am amazed that there's a new build with bug fixes available pretty much daily.

BTW the xywiki looks interesting as well, but it loads excrutiatingly slowly (I've had to hit reload three times when it was stuck at between 95 and 100%).

Hmn, you're right... it hasn't always been that way.  Maybe just a temporary hiccup somewhere in the pipeline.

Weird - once it loads successfully navigating around it goes smoothly. There's a wealth of information there!

Damn! I discover something new about XYPlorer everytime I open it up. Over the last few days I've discovered that right out of the box it hooks into my QuickView Plus installation and provides previews of any file (just about) that I click on. This morning I discovered that right clicking on the information panel maximizes/minimizes it (much lick doubleclicking on a the title bar of a Windows app). This is awesome because it means that I can set a size that is reasonable when looking at my folder structure AND a size that is useful for previewing and then switch between them with a single click of the mouse  Kiss

If XYplorer ever gets dual-pane viewing DOpus will be very seriously on the ropes...

 Grin or press ALT + F12 if you're a keyboard junky

I also like the preview abilities in XYplorer, such as being able to preview .psd files  smiley

Thanks for the tip, mitzevo. I'm always happy to learn about keyboard shortcuts.

Sadly, the wiki is still slow to load (though quicker than it was in May...).
