This app is really good but it has some bugs and missed functions like file- directory compare, RAR support the developer writes in a mail he is working on it for the future release(s). I'm working many years with Total Commander for Windows and now since a few day's with DC on my mac. DCommander gives good expectations for me.

This app is really great and very close with interface and controlling for those who are "Total Commander old school".
It has some missing features yet, but don't be shy and write to developer, he communicates very well and he implements requests and fixes bugs quite fast.

muCommander is free.

yes, muCommander is free but:
1. it is ugly java, not a native app.
2. development on muCommander is hanged - except automated night builds there is no progress in muCommander development.
In my experience developer of DCommander communicates very fast and in excellent way and now DCommander is worth for the money, although in the beginning I had some doubts. The only competitive app for DCommander is Forklift, but it may be matter of subjective preferences. For example I've switched to DCommander and I must honestly say it was worth for it. Many thanks to developer for DCommander - it's the closest app to my old-times used TotalCommander.

To the jerk who's clicking on the frowning face of the first two commenters, who happen to point out that Path Finder is the better option, don't wear your cursor out doing that. If you have a counterargument to make, post it. Just don't downgrade someone without showing yourself.

Does someone disagreeing with you automatically makes him/her a jerk? :D

What he said

B. Jefferson Le Blanc

Path Finder has been around a long time and is a very capable, mature, and stable app. And you can download a demo to try it out before buying it. That said, it's more than three times as expensive as DCommander. I suggest trying Path Finder before buying DCommander to see if you like the dual window with tabs window management model. It takes some getting used to but can be great if it fits your particular workflow.

There are other window management tools available as well. Personally, I like and use Finder Window Manager (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/21475/finder-window-manager), which enables me to create window sets with which I have created window pairs using specific windows in a variety of combinations. For example: Downloads/Applications; Downloads/Archives; Applications/Utilities, and so on. It costs the same as DCommander, $15, but you can download and try it out before paying for it.

I suggest trying out several window managers before paying for any of them. Unfortunately, I have found no search criteria that will generate a list of only such window organizing utilities on MacUpdate. If anyone has better luck they might let us know what terms to use to get an appropriate list.


I find Path Finder too heavy on resources and buggy.
