  • I have used this software since a couple of years now. It is good but only for Local Computer, as soon as you start using it for Data over LAN / Wifi it freezes and many times crashes / not responds.

    I stopped using it since i lost my patience on waiting for it to respond over LAN. I looked for any other Free Alternate (Which are very Rare) but found an amazing (so lite weight) and fully functional Explorer Alternate with All features of Windows Explorer. It is WDE (Windows Double Explorer) http://wde.codeplex.com/

    Check it out and compare, it is amazing. Using it since 4-6 months now.
