FreeCommander

FreeCommander has some other nifty features too:
  • Mass File Renamer
  • Customisable layout
  • Basic file/folder compare tools
  • MD5 tool

The Folder size function is activated by a button (Click picture for animation).

Thanks mate. Boy you are fast :-)

I know but do little usage with total commander so I know the principle of these apps.

For batch rename I used few times AcdSee.

To display 2 folders side by side I use the the show windows side by side feature of windows but obviuosly these apps does it better.

I went through some features of FreeCommander - as I said, it's great.

Again. Thanks a lot.

I happened to login just after you posted.

I had the pictures in my user attachments.
I had posted them previously (one of them is from earlier in this very thread).
