    This is not a message intended to flame Linux; I very much enjoy having Linux.
    I am hoping someone who is also a Linux lover can point me to something I haven't yet found and seriously need.

    A really, really good file manager.

    I think I've tried every one so far - and nothing even comes close to being as easy to use as funky old windows explorer.

    In windows I mostly use that with QT Tabbar added, but I also use X2, FreeCommander and a few others - and have just been unable to find anything remotely close to a really good one for use under Linux.

    Why do I care, you may ask...
    I have several hard disks with significant amounts of important files that I connect externally with a USB adapter & small power supply.
    Trying to navigate through a great many folders and files using Thunar, SpaceFM or any of the others is much harder than with plain, old explorer.

    Does anyone here have a suggestion for a really good dual or quad-pane plain old file manager that is nice & easy to use under Linux ??

    Thanks for any helpful replies !!

    I myself am using Krusader. I installed it from the Linux Mint repo (it's also in the Ubuntu repo). It's a twin-panel file manager, very much like Total Commander in Windows...
