Total Commander ( ) is a windows port of the Norton Commander dos file manager... it has gone through many revisions expanding and enhancing its feature set. The 7.0 release added Secure FTP,Updated user interface, Multi-rename-tool, More options in copy overwrite dialog but one thing it was missing was integration in the XP AutoPlay menu.
