Best Disk / File Utility
File Commander is a 32 bit text mode file manager and shell that allows
you to locate, copy, move, delete, view, edit and execute your files in a
quick, convenient and customizable manner.
Its main display provides dual directory view panels that may serve as source
and destination of a copy or move operation or just two different views of your
files. A panel may also be used to view a directory tree, drive statistics or
may be turned off altogether, making visible the output of previously executed
A command line is also provided and operates in conjunction with the directory
panels to make it much more powerful than a regular CLI including pasting file
names from the panel, a command history recall window and command completion
