    I use FreeCommander XE from http://www.freecommander.com/fc_beta_en.htm

    It is currently in beta but here is the list of awesome details

    FreeCommander XE is a totally new developed version of the program. The development is not finished, yet. This version is supposed to give a preview to the future version to present users. Since this is a preview version, bugs are possible.
    What is done:

    • Dual-panel technology - horizontal and vertical (one panel possible too)
    • Tabbed interface
    • Full access to desktop
    • Optional tree view for each panel
    • Built-in file viewer to view files in hex, binary, text or image format
    • File viewer and thumbnail view inside archives too
    • Built-in archive handling: ZIP (read, write)
    • Nested archive handling
    • Plugins for other archive (RAR, 7z, ...)
    • Easy access to system folders, control panel, desktop and start menu
    • Copy, move, delete, rename files and folders (alternatively as Windows or FreeCommander operation)
    • Drag&drop
    • File properties and context menu
    • Calculation of folder size
    • Folder comparison
    • Modification of file date and attributes
    • Folder / program favorites
    • File filters (regexppossible too) for display and file operations
    • User defined columns for detailed views
    • DOS command line
    • Quick viewer
    • Quick search
    • Quick filter
    • Quick starter
    • All shortcuts are definable
    • A lot of settings - you can configure almost all
    What is planned:

    • File searching (inside archive too)
    • Multiple language support
    • Content plugins
    • Multi rename tool
    • Wipe files
    • Create and verify MD5 checksums
    • File splitting
    • Folder synchronization
    • Layouts
    • Screenshots
    • FTP client

    Thank you to all for your suggestions.

    I tried some of these. In my opinion here are the best in oder. None of these are free.

    1) Directory Opus - it is not free (60 day trial period)
    2) Power desk
    3) WinNC

    Thanks agian

    This works in Win 7 and is free. Powerdesk 6.013 To avoid the occasional hang requireing Task Manager to shut down multiple processes run it in Win 95 compatibility mode. (Note this will only show a disk size as 2G regardless of actual size but otherwise works great.)
