Lol so completly trrue. Btw same question here and is their any way to disable the windows explored because it's usually the program that takes up most of my memory when my laptop is idling. Or any ways to optimize win explore because as stated above I like the un-due feature.....

Windows 7 32 bit

To be a bit more specific, anyone know of a good free 64 bit explorer replacement that's multi-threaded and stable? I've been checking out Q-Dir. I like the basic scheme of the utility but unfortunately it appears to be single threaded. While waiting for a large file to copy you can't perform any other operations. It just seems to forget about any input while the long operations is carried out. It's too bad because if it was multi-threaded it would be a very nice little utility. Simple design.

I was able to do a file search while transferring a large file with Explorer++ so it might meet your needs. I'm using the 64-bit version. There is a link in my message above. It is free.

Windows 7 32 bit

I tried it. Thanks for the suggestion. I think I'll try another approach. I've got TeraCopy 64 bit free version to do the copy. I'm going to try it with Q-Dir. That should offload the task from Q-Dir. I like Q-Dir. I'll post back in case anyone is curious, if this scheme works well.

There is none, was none and i assume will not be any.

All available today file managers lacks a little things in pursue perfection, and there is no one to dispute about: coder ALWAYS knows better. So, when you asking crucial question "64-bit?" you can be sure that in most cases you will get an stupid question as answer "what for?", and there is it. Even if you can provide an example on screencast, when copying a file manager in 32-bit mode on 64-bit OS slows down to zero and then hangs.. Even if you can show that Java code on 64-bit OS is working much faster and prove that 64-bit IS actually better, faster... But NO, coder always knows better, and try suggest something. Geez.

Total Commander always was my first choice, i used to this prog along time ago and used extensively on Univ, but for long now is abandoned by third party GOOD plugins writers, and of course, there is NONE for 64-bit wersion.. shame.

IMO, give some credit to Windows Explorer, maybe it is not what it was in the beginning, but tandem with Cyberduck works for me.
