This 5 star rating is to make up for my half star rating back in March. Combined they give an average rating. In hindsight, I was perhaps a little harsh. Having said that, the fact remains that DCommander costs $29, in a market where similar apps exist, some of which are free. The $29 is not a lifetime license, but only provides 1 year of updates, or you can subscribe for $19 a year. Although you can download a trial here on MU, on the dev's website, the only option is to purchase outright.

This is a 'copy cat' app, of Double Commander, which is a FREE, open source app that has been around since 2007 and available for Mac, Windows, FreeBsd and most other Linux distros. Even to the point of using a very similar name 'DCommander', and almost the same app description, calling itself based on 'Total Commander'. No, the original Double Commander is based on Total Commander; DCommander is based on Double Commander. It would not surprise me if the developer has 'borrowed' from the open source code for Double Commander. Try the 'real' Double Commander, at https://doublecmd.sourceforge.io/, it is stable, cross platform.

Crash, crash, crash - wanted to use DCommander as the connection between Box.com (as FTP) and my computer. Box.com's app is not so good, the one that lays dormant in the menu. It uses massive amount of processing power to do basic sync. I use my computer for pleasure and work.

DCommander should have been the solution, but after just a few minutes of testing, I realise it's not gonna happen. It mega crashes all the time. Every time I want to go deeper into my box.com FTP it crashes.
- I can't really get my work done like this, can I?
I'll try out Forklift instead.

Nice layout, features and options

Wish this product had a demo. For a few dollars I might buy something from the app store, but for $20 I'm more wary. Too bad, it seems like it has a lot of potential.

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.

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. [Let's see how fast THIS comment of mine gets a Frownie!]
