Back in the windows world, there is a severe lack of useful file management utilities. Enter Total Commander. I don’t have too much time to write this post, but I just saved a bunch of time using Total Commander, so I have time to write these few lines. It is shareware, but you can use it without limitation, with a nag screen on start up. The cost is not too prohibitive, so you should probably just buy it.
If you have to use Windows, I suggest that you use Total Commander. End of line.
