Directory Opus is a file manager that intends to replace Windows Explorer.
The interface of the software includes a treeview and dual screens, so you can navigate with ease within your computer.
So, you can cut, copy (e.g. file names, full path names, URLs, MD5 checksums) and paste files, change the viewing mode, calculate folder sizes and select files (e.g. same extensions, source to destination).
But you can also use a search function, assign keyboard hotkeys, synchronize data, find duplicate files, join or split files, convert, rotate, as well as and make thumbnails or a slideshow out of images.
Additionally, you can connect to a network drive, run Command Prompter, open a new lister, edit metadata, set labels, enter file descriptions, create and organize a favorites list and an address book, connect to FTP, create archives and extract content from compressed files, view FTP logs, as well as backup and restore your Directory Opus configuration.
Furthermore, you can completely configure the program preferences when it comes to file display mode, file operations, folder tabs, folder tree, internet, program launch, layout and styles, photo sharing, toolbars, viewer, ZIP and other archives, and more.
The software uses a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, includes a well-written help file and didn't freeze or crash during our tests.
All in all, Directory Opus incorporates some simple but powerful options for a file manager and is simple to use even by inexperienced individuals. We highly recommend it this tool.

What's New in This Release:
· The timestamps of copied files were not properly preserved if the copied file had associated metadata (ratings, tags, comment, etc) that was also copied
· The "Select previous folder when going up" option now really only applies to Go UP, and not whenever the new folder happens to be the parent of the old one
· Fixed bug that could cause the progress dialog’s percentage complete to be miscalculated
