If you find a free one please post it. My favorite free file manager for Windows is freeCommander. Unfortunately since it's implemented in Delphi there's no 64 bit version contemplated by the author.

It works on Vista64 but there are times when there's a lag.. esp. between clicking a file and it getting the selection highlight. It seems to work fine on W7 32 bit. I don't have a 64 bit version of W7 to try it there.

Explorer++ isn't perfect but the program developer is active in updating it. There are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions on the download page. I use the 64-bit version and for the most part it works well. One feature that I really like is that it displays the amount of free space available on a partition in the status bar which is something Explorer does not do anymore. It is free.

I was using Ultra Explorer but it does not appear to be 64-bit.

I noted that neither Ultra Explorer nor Free Commander had an Undo button.
I have found Windows undo button very handy as it so easy to accidentally move or delete a folder & then wonder where it went.


After my latest clean install I haven't bothered to reinstall either.

At present, I am resigned to using Windows Explorer until a free 64-bit replacement or addon comes along.

Ther was a brilliant program called QT TabBar which integrated with Windows Explorer and added some very useful functions. However, development seems to have ceased in Jan 2009. It worked in Vista but does not work with Windows 7.
