You and I are in the same boat, it seems, WRT DOpus  Grin I also have a licence for the portable version and basically can't get past it anymore, despite the licences I own for its competitors. A testament to how good it is or a testament to me being set in my ways? In either case, the money I've lashed out for the other file managers is a testament to my being in the grip of a powerful addiction  tongue

Before my defection to the Directory Opus camp...I always used Magellan Explorer http://www.enriva.com. Bought version 2 of that one at the time for 20 USD (upgrade from the freeware/adware version).

Used it exclusivly for two years and then I learned that my favorite filemanager from the Commodore Amiga was available for PC as well....and never looked back since Wink

can anyone recommend a file manager that will do a simple byte comparison of two files ?

Do you mean, a built-in "diff" tool?  If you do, Total Commander has it.  You can compare as binary, or not (i.e. as text).

well, in DOpus you can synch folder contents by doing a "byte comparision"
I actually dont want to have to look at text & compare it (or even know where the differences are) - I just want to know if they're the same or not smiley

If the two files are identical, you don't have to look at the text.  Total Commander just pops up a little box that says "Compare - The two files are identical!  [OK]"

You can make it do CRC/md5 checks as well, but you'd have to examine the results.

Maybe I should just ask DonL seeing as I have XYPlorer liscence...

Please do.  I have a license too, and would like to know if that sort of feature is available or planned.

Would you find a duplicate finder helpful?  If you don't already have a favourite, try the excellent Double Killer by Jan SchlĂĽter, who posts here on DC sometimes.

+1 for this suggestion. I should have mentioned it earlier. This is an application that I own a licence for and actually use often  embarassed I works very quickly and REALLY well and is set up in such a way that you can remove duplicate files safely.

- yes, the double killer seems to be fine, but from the text I would say one would need the pro version,  €15 ~ $20 which also seems to be version you have, darwin?

Just replied to both, Tom. No problems from end of things. Note that Don has already replied to your question - there is not yet a file comparison tool built into XYPlorer, but it is easy to set it up to use a 3rd party app. Don suggests you take a look at WinMerge and points to a thread discussing setting this all up: http://www.xyplorer.com/x...ewtopic.php?p=22136#22136

thanks Mike,
yes I saw his answer, my reply, which I couldnt post was

Thanks Don for very quick reply!

yes, I had seen that thread
Would still be very interested in the "same or not" option [a simple "same or not" function]-
thing is, I'm no advanced user & also am not working with text files, so seeing the actual differences doesnt interest me so much as simply knowing if the files are the same or not

thanks, Tom

Just an update - I'm down to two file managers (above and beyond Windows Explorer), Dopus 9 and XYPlorer. Even File Manager is gone... I wasn't really using any of the others and thought I might as well streamline my system. Not sure how long XYPlorer is going to last... I love it but don't use it much, either.

^ You're in the same boat as me Darwin.  I'm still trying (and liking) FileBoss, but I just re-upped on DOpus (I'd stagnated at 6) because XYplorer and FileBoss just weren't doing it for me in Vista.

I find i'm using just 2 file managers now (well, i wont include explorer tho i do use it at times).  XYplorer for all those day to day things where a single pane at a time is fine, and total commander (the Ultima prime variant) for when i want to do some (for me) heavy duty copying or moving where i find 2 panes and the the options better on TC.  Of course a lot of this is no doubt that i'm just too lazy to investigate all the options of either.  smiley

More than 90 % of the time I will use QT Tabbar / XP's Explorer. Yesterday I decided to sort 800 MP3 files and move them from a temporary download folder and into folders the same way it is done when you record a CD: My Documents > My Music > Artist > Album > Tracks. For this I would of course need drag&drop and a dual pane browser, and my choice was Q-Dir Unicode (Quadro-View) because it uses the <- back-button<- in a clever way and always returns to the proper position. Try it and you'll know what I mean.

Yesterday I found out about (another) freeware explorer replacement:

DualXplorer http://www.softpedia.com/...anagers/DualXplorer.shtml

Seems it very interesting, besides the functionalities you would expect, there are also a lot of network specific tools included.

And the latest beta takes a quantum leap in usability, and implements this with "Compare currently selected file with last selected file"! (in the previous version you had to copy the previous file, this version only needs 3 clicks! cheesy)

Fuzzy Duck Explorer Plus !??   huh

I am not at all sure what this is, but I guess it is some kind of a file manager. But first a warning if you are going to try your luck on this: The all new 1.4 seems to be the last of it's kind, because the also all new 1.5 beta is using a different kind of settings and will not accept version 1.4's. 1.5 takes a complete removal of 1.4 and you will need to do the personal settings again.

Quote
Fuzzy Duck Explorer Plus is replacing the standard version, Fuzzy Duck Explorer (no "plus"). You can get the last standard version (with no user admin features) here (direct link!). Standard will be updated as I update Plus, but the main development branch is now Plus.

What is Fuzzy Duck Explorer Plus (FDE+) ?

FDE+ is a free web based file manager.
The project grew out of the frustration I felt from not being able to find a free File Manager, written in ASP that did everything I wanted and looked good!! (I think this looks ok Wink)

It features:

    * File/Folder Management
          o Create New Files/Folders
          o Copy Files/Folders
          o Move Files/Folders
          o Delete Files/Folders
          o Download Files
          o Upload Files
          o Edit Files
    * Search Feature
    * Sortable Details View (click the column headings)
    * Tile View
    * Full Graphical Interface
    * Easy Install
    * Database Driven user management.
    * Can create users (with md5 password encryption) and user folders.
          o Create Read only users
          o Create Admin users
          o Create user folder
          o Assign user disk quotas
    * Users are then only able to access their user area.
    * If you want to easily have more than one user this is how!!
    * Banned folders list
    * Banned extensions list

Screen Shots
Detail View, Click image for larger picture


        
Tile View, Click image for larger picture




So lets start from the beginning, Installation.

If you just upload the Explorer folder to your website, it should just work.

You must have read write access for iis guest user on the whole explorer folder.

A tip from Eyal Zarchi, add the apps location to your trusted sites!!

But there are a few settings you can tweak in the default.asp file.

    .databasePath = server.mappath("./db/login.mdb")
    .loginLog = false
    .idleLogout = 5
    .showHiddenItems = false
    .bannedFolders = "folder1|folder2"
    .bannedFiles = "mp3|wmv"
    .searchPanel = true
    .newfilePanel = true
    .newfolderPanel = true
    .viewChangerPanel = true
    .uploadPanel = 3
    .buttons = true
    .dateFormat = "ddmmyyyy"
    .uploadProgressBar = true
    .guestLink = true
    .useUploadDLL = "" 'tabsupload
    .openLinkIn = "same" 'same , new , both
    .root=""'Custom root for the site

    * databasePath is the physical path to the login database.
    * loginLog, set this to true to log every user login. You need to download the database to see this info.
    * idleLogout is the time in minutes that a user who is logged in can stay idle before being logged out. root is the root folder. As mentioned above this can be set to the same as the username maybe to access a network folder. (.username returns the name of the logged in user).
    * showHiddenItems determines if you can see hidden folders (true) or not (false).
    * bannedFolders is a list of folders you wish to be hidden, separated with |.
    * bannedFiles is a list of file extensions you wish to be banned from upload, separated with |.
    * searchPanel if set to true will display the search box.
    * newfilePanel if set to true will display the new file box.
    * newfolderPanel if set to true will display the new folder box.
    * viewChangerPanel if set to true will display the button to change the view between detail and tile views.
    * uploadPanel if set to more than 0 will display that number of upload boxes.
    * buttons if set to true will display the home, help, upload and view buttons (best to leave this set to true!!).
    * dateFormat sets how dates will be displayed to the user ddmmyyyy , mdyyyy , yyyymmdd
    * uploadProgressBar turns on the upload progress bar. You must have a folder in the explorer root called tmp and it must have write access. Set to false if you have problems uploading.
    * guestLink. If you have set up guest access a "Guest Login" link is displayed under the login box. To turn off this link set guestLink to false (guestLink = false)
    * openLinkIn. This can be set to same, new or both. Same means that all file links will open in the same window. New means they will open in a new window. Both adds a small new window icon next to the link that opens the link in a new window.
    * .useUploadDLL set to tabsupload if you have tabs upload installed

Per user folder permissions

Ok this needs a little explanation. As an admin you will see this icon next to every folder Folder Permissions Icon
Click on this and you will be taken to a list of users. Each user has a tick box in front of it and one after it.

The first tick box selects a user that will have access to the folder.
The second box selects if the user will on have read only access to the folder.
This will override any other settings made when the user was created.

A hidden file called fuzzyperm.fde is created in the folder with a list of usernames in it.
This allows you to customize areas to allow certain access to certain folders or have admin only folders etc.

File and Folder attributes.

Click on the one of the following icons and you will be taken to an attributes editor Folder Attributes File Attributes
Hidden files or folders appear faded in FDE.

These changes affect the actual files and folders so be carefully!!!
