    Over the years, I've found Directory Opus is the one that suits me best.

    When I need to manipulate large groups of files I use robocopy, otherwise i find it easier to add 'copy to' and 'move to' to your context menu. With Vista context menu copy and move now have an address bar in them making it easier to work with files than having to load up another utility just to copy files.

    Total Commander - shareware (best)
    Salamand commander - shareware (alternative)
    UltraExplorer 2.0.0.0 - free software (good alternative)

    Total Commander or better Total Commander PowerPack and sometimes Far Manager. Explorer... i understand many people got used to use it and feel comfortable with it and don't need anything more, but i never could stand it. I guess it's because in the old good times of DOS Norton Commander was everything and it's really a big pain to move from two panes' file management to explorer's way.
