Default ZTree for Windows and OS2

This is not new, but it might be new to some people here.

If you ever long for the days of XTree for DOS, there is a program called Ztree that duplicates its interface and adds new features. I have a copy and use it sometimes because it is more powerful and quicker than Windows Explorer. I think I would like it better if it did not have only the DOS look or the Windows console look. I discussed this with the developer, and he pointed out that XTree Windows (and many other Windows file managers) flopped in the marketplace. IOW, too risky to spend the programming time doing it.

If you are curious, take a look: http://www.ztree.com/

Thanks for that Andrew: it might be easier than wrestling with xcopy that I am currently trying to use for backing up one NAS to the other. ( I was wondering whether to enable the FTP server on them so I could use WS_FTP synch.)

$19.95 for a license, but there is a free 30 day trial.

I like to have this information here, before looking on the site. This site is upfront with the price, but some sites are coy.

If you just want to back up by copying, another possibility is Handy Backup

I use SyncBack for that (in the end, copying is what it does (no compression for instance) but it's quite powerful in how you can set up jobs, combine them into groups and schedule them)! Though for more serious backup and syncing I'm considering the paid-for SyncBackSE version.
