Windows Explorer is a pretty good file manager, but why settle for "pretty good" when you can have OUTSTANDING? With PowerDesk 9 Professional, you'll have access to six file utilities that totally replace Explorer with file management tools that will make your life easier and better! Believe me, you WILL NOT miss Windows Explorer!

Let's start with the most important thing -- finding your files! Have you ever relied on Windows Search and come up empty, when you KNOW for CERTAIN that what you need is on your drive? Well, with PowerDesk 9 Professional's powerful search engine functionality, you can quickly locate files by keyword, file type, size, or date range and see the "hits" displayed in a single-line reference!

How often have you had to launch an FTP program and interrupt your workflow? Thanks to PowerDesk 9 Professional, your FTP sites can be viewed just like ordinary folders! Ever had to launch a separate utility just to compare two folders? Not anymore! PowerDesk 9 Professional can compare and synchronize the contents of any two folders, especially useful when working on files that are shared between two machines!

The list of benefits over Windows Explorer goes on and on! PowerDesk 9 Professional boasts a "Size Manager" that shows you which files are consuming the most of your valuable hard drive space. Even better, you can use PowerDesk 9 Professional to compress and expand your files using over 30 compression formats to save even more disk space!

Lastly, PowerDesk 9 Professional will enhance all of your Open File and Save File dialog boxes to give you fast access to recently opened files!

Curt Henning de Thurah PowerDesk 9 at minus 30% is not an offer, but normal price. I am disappointed to see Bits du Jour taking part in such bewildering!

TopDog There are way too many disadvantages to this program to even consider it.
It is buggy, cost, poor customer support. Lack of loyalty upgrading of minor updates and upgrading discounts. I am disappointed that bitsdujour even offers it. Read the older comments.

Filthy Jim McNasty I agree with all the sad stories above: Buggy (On Windows 7 x64); Can't find any way to get an upgrade price; Laughably underpowered compared to Directory Opus, XYPlorer and Altap Salamander; Essential maintenance releases extremely rare ... And what kind of a saving/deal is the BDJ price? Not good enough. This should be a BDJ one-day freebie if AvanQuest wants to lure all their unhappy customers back to their fold.

I used to particularly like their File Finder, but it kept crashing on me to the point where I gave up and uninstalled the whole damn mess.

This morning I wrote to asking for upgrade prices. Note the UK part of that address. A few minutes later I got a blank return mail in French. The subject line read: "Subject: Réponse automatique d'absence du bureau : PowerDesk Platinum Upgrades?". OK, they're not in the office. But I bet their sales team are in. A shoddy way to run any business.

Once upon a time isn't good enough. Why am I here? To read your comments in hope of some positive reason to throw more of my money at them for a fixed product. But that was before their reply to my EMail. I'll keep the wallet closed, forever in their case.

I hope potential BDJ buyers read all our mails. Was that just one positive comment I noticed? Out of over 100. BDJ are good, but unwise this time.

Sorry BDJ, and (Insert choice of expletive) AvanQuest.

Try the above link for the upgrade price to PD9.

I installed it on a new Windows 8 computer. It is still the slowest opening file manager I have used. I do like the File Find and File Sync features. They seemed to have improved them from previous versions. For regular file managment I use Opus 10 Pro or XYplorer. With Opus, the license allows two installs on different computers. Xyplorer allows installs on all of the computers in your home and you aslo can buy a lifetime license. With PD9 you are allowed one install.

Filthy Jim McNasty Oh, Joe. Thanks for that link. However did you even find it? I am almost tempted to give them another chance. Ratchet! For $14:00 (£9:28 in old money) I might get fish, chips and a pint.

I hate you (not). I'll go without supper and give them one last chance.

But seriously: How did you find that link? I've trawled all over the UK site without joy. They must prefer $US to £UK. Well, they're French. Revenge for Waterloo?

Thanks again.

Joe McCormick To Filthy Jim. I believe it was a link given to me a few months ago for upgrading from earlier PowerDesk versions. I was fed up with PD8 but I thought I would try the new PD9. I have found in the past, PowerDesk usually works best when it is installed on a new Windows install. If I try to do an Upgrade of PowerDesk from and older version to the newer version on the same computer, PowerDesk usually is a piece of crap software. So far on my Windows 8 system it does not crash like versionx 7 and 8 did. But as I mentioned before it is still a very slow file manager compared to all the others I have tried. I hope if you upgrade it will work for you.

Craig Haywood This used to be a good program in the days of windows 95. Nowadays nothing beats Directory Opus

George Cohen Agree with all above comments. I was an early and pleased adopter but was greatly disappointed in later versions. Hate to admit it but the software problems actually made me angry. Combined with any degree of service I swore off all products from the developer. It really is a case of buyer beware if you are foolish enough to purchase this product.
I would also second the positive comment for Directory Opus. I have had good fortune with this product and have consistently upgraded due to the product's quality and service from the developer.

Ric NOT TRUSTWORTHY!!! PowerDeskPro is problematic at best and has terrible, apathetic support. Almost 2 years ago I purchased version 8.5, as I had been using v6 and 7 beforehand, which I really liked.

After a while of using v8.5, I discovered that when COPYING files it would MOVE them instead. I didn't notice this with small files; I only noticed it when copying large files because the copy window appears, whereas with small files it doesn't even flash on the screen. However, instead of saying "copying" it said "moving" in the window title. I freaked out. To this day I still have no idea how many files I moved from my desktop PC to a backup drive which are no longer on my PC. I spent days figuring out which files I no longer had on my desktop PC.

When I first contacted Avantquest they told me they'd look into it. When I kept pressing tech support about the issue, I finally got an email stating they were aware of this problem as other users reported it too.

I thought this was such a significant bug and suggested they inform their unsuspecting users. But they never did. They never issued any fixes or updates either. They also refused to refund me because I was past the refund period. About 9 months later they issued v9 but they wouldn't give it for free considering how deflective v8.5 was. The copying/moving issue seems to be resolved but I just CAN'T trust it anymore. I went from using PowerDeskPro exclusively to avoiding it. Thank goodness I discovered Directory Opus and XYplorer on Bits du Jour from comments by other users.

Olivier Gebuhrer Awfull! When ontrack launched the program it was superb ; since it went to V-com it was immmediately full of bugs , no answer from the support if any !!!!
Since I bought DOand XXplorer , finally I have what I wanted ; not a chance that I continue to buy that version which already appeared and ........ crashed or malfunction on my PC (Windows 7 64- bits ) ; requires the license N° at each reboot ; when their sytem "detects " that your license is not available which is A WRONG DETECTION most of the time , your machine is BLOCKED ; no answer on that point from the vendor or support ; really a pest .

Chuck Brotman FWIW: I agree with most of the above comments!
I've been using this product line since it was the Mijenix company. It was awsome software at the time: PDx Pro, System suite x, Zip Magic... sadly each time it moved to a new company it lost some of its sheen. I now use Xplorer2 ultimate and love it. Stopped using PD at about v7 (too slow & Buggy and NOnew features and have never looked back. It's a real shame how his product set has deteriorated and fallen from what it once was...

pestoking I have been using PowerDesk for many, many years. Yes, it can be a bit flakey at times, but it still is a very capable file manager utility. Plenty of programs freeze and crash from time to time, par for the course. PowerDesk has its occasional moments. I haven't shopped for alternatives, but will check out Opus. Regarding the link to purchase a license for $14, yes that's legit. Once you register the software (you can't use it unless you register and PowerDesk phones home to check to lock the key to your PC), you will receive occasional email offers with the $14 pricing. You'll want to keep those emails because after you install your license key, the program is locked to your computer via a code tied to your computer's components. You cannot uninstall it and/or de-license the key from the computer and move it to another computer, unless you call Avanquest and beg for a new key, which they MAY do one time (been there, done that). This is the only program I own that deploys this EXTREME licensing scheme, and it's just a file manager. Yah, I know, what up with that? It's like buying disposable razor blades. Disposable license keys. So I build and upgrade a lot of computers, and have gotten into the routine of buying a handful of license keys at $14 a pop to take care of new computers and updates. If I had to pay $39.95 (or even $27.96) every time I changed out a CPU or motherboard, I'd probably bail on this product. But at $14, I can swallow that. Disposable razor blades. Avanquest, if you are listening, this is a long-time user that's telling you OK with locking the key to a PC, but time for you to build in the ability to DE-LICENSE the key so the software can be used elsewhere. You are not losing anything, that's one key on one PC at a time. Your aggressive phone home routine will work fine to verify the key is only being used on one computer.
