I actually used Xplorer2 (as well as its predecessor: 2xExplorer) "Lite" version; a dual-pane file manager for Microsoft Windows operating systems, for several years and enjoyed it very much as an alternative to Windows Explorer... However, I gradually became disenchanted that the more advanced features are restricted to the Pro version. For example: As opposed to the professional version; this lesser version basically lacks customizability and any "search command." Additionally, Check Duplicates and Compare Subfolders functions are disabled in the 'free' lite version. Three other man features of the Xplorer2 Professional version not present in the lite version are advanced search (Omni-Finder), full Unicode support and robust transfer.
Often time's free versions of software are independent of their paid upgrade, however Xplorer2 Lite is simply Xplorer2 with more than just a few of the far more useful options turned off. This can make for an extremely frustrating experience while using it, because many of the options (those that are made unavailable) are not clearly labeled as such. But for me, the biggest negative is that you still must use the Windows Explorer search function in order to search for any files. Don't get me wrong here, I'm not really complaining because Xplorer2 Lite, which is offered free for personal and academic use and is actually an overall useful program; however the fact remains that - simply put - the free version is FAR LESS useful.
An excellent file manager. You can choose from lite (free), pro and ultimate. It has everything you ever need, packet in easy to use interface with option for add ons.
I have been using Xplorer2 (lite and pro) for years now and I really recommend it to others.
For a short and useful comment I'd say the program is rich in features while still being user friendly.
I have tried a lot of explorer replacement and this one is definitely my favorite. It have enough useful features for me such as tab browsing, bookmark, view filter, customizable interface, full unicode support (pro version), mass file rename and extension changing ... etc.
It has a good blend between features and user friendly, the other progs that I tried may have too much features that it becomes overkill while some others has too few features that make it become no better than the default explorer that comes with windows
