What are people saying about Directory Opus 10 Pro

H Schull I have tried a lot of file management software and I keep coming back to Directory Opus.
Jun 22 2012 at 8:54am Copy Link
S B This is the grand-daddy.

BDJ has been speaking to GP Software, trying to have a DOpus promotion for years, and now it's here. Several of us have been cheering on the sidelines for years, too.

I've been using DOpus for years; it is broad, powerful, intuitive, and comfortable. It's my main file manager (I do enjoy XYPlorer and Xplorer2 for their specialties).

The BDJ promotion price is about the same as the early v 9 to v 10 upgrade price.

A magnificent product. Highly recommended.
Jul 6 2012 at 12:23am Copy Link
Tore Hoyem I agree 100% with what's being said above.
I have also bought and tried several other 'file managers' and liked them, but this is simply the best (imo).

It is simply the piece of software running under Windows that I use the most.
DO is so full of features, I have only scratched the surface, in the years I have owned it. In spite of it's feature set, it in no way feels bloated.

Some might feel that the price is steep, especially the full price, but you will not regret buying it, for sure.
Jul 6 2012 at 1:27am Copy Link
Louis H This is a MAJOR coup for BDJ!

Simply put, this is the gold standard for file managers.

Like Tore, I have been using this one for years and feel I have only scratched the surface.

I use three different file managers, depending on what my main tasks are. Q-Dir - a free and very fast file manager that fits my day to day basic needs. XYPlorer - which continues to impress me with a constantly evolving expansion of features and usability. And, when I need the serious power of a major power tool, Directory Opus.

I encourage all to check out the trial version of DOpus. Explore the vendor's site and see for yourself what this magnificent program has to offer. Then give serious consideration to picking this one up.

Way to go, BDJ!

Gonzo @S B
I don't mean to sound rude, but BDJ already offered DOpus at least 2 times in the past.

Jul 6 2012 at 6:54am Copy Link
Jan-Christoph Ihrens I used - and liked - other file management tools, but I uninstalled them happily as soon as I had purchased Directory Opus some years ago. I'm using it quite a lot (it's always open), and it seems to be capable of almost anything except cooking and ironing; it's still able to surprise me with great features I never noticed before - and it's rock solid despite the wealth of features.

I really have (and use) a lot of software, but this is one of my absolute favourites.

Don't miss this offer if you have to fiddle with files and folders regularly!

Jul 6 2012 at 8:57am Copy Link
Ernest Kennedy I can remember Directory Opus v1.0 and onward in the Commodore Amiga days of old and then onto the PC until this day of version 10.1.
It was awesome then and even more awesome now and is worth every penny of everyones money. If you copy or move files around it is an absolute must have.
Having said that I gotta admit I have only used the PC editions on a trial basis only, unable at them times to pay for it but now I have some money in my bank (Not a lot though!) I will be making this purchase this time around and will be so proud to have finally made the right choice. Go get it people! and be as proud as I will be on the day of the promo.

S B @Gonzo,

Not rude, but needed--thanks!

I do remember BDJ trying, but I think you're exactly right. Apparently I wasn't thinking very clearly late last night--though I *was* thinking clearly about how great DOpus is.

With a little help from our friends we can eventually get it right!

Jul 6 2012 at 2:21pm Copy Link
Michael R. Since the license is only for one computer, I think this is a good opportunity instead of upgrading an owned v9 (with 40% discount) to buy the current v10 here, pay a little less (42%) and use the old v9 on a second computer...

Question: Is there an easy way to call DOpus from the command-line (or a batch-file) and define the source- and destination-directories shown at start? (I tried hard to find a way, because I really believe this is possible, but couldn't find it...).

Thanks a lot...

eb235 @S B & Gonzo
here's some help my friends from a quick search at BDJ :
it looks like Directory Opus 9 was promoted twice in 2010 (January and July) and once in 2011 (February) (at 40% !)
It's a first for version 10.
Jul 7 2012 at 1:49am Copy Link
Joe M To Michael R.
I read under the BitsDuJour Policy that you can install the program on a desktop and a laptop and use them at the same time.
I assume that you could install it on two desktops or two laptops.

What would be nice if it came with a license for three installations on three different computers in the house.
Jul 7 2012 at 7:14am Copy Link
disenchanted @ Michael R,

You can add on the "USB portable license for $10" more.

It installs the program to a jump drive.

Great for letting you carry the app from computer to computer.

GP Software @Joe McCormick: An unlimited number of computers, one at a time. Technically it's a USB _export_ licence - with one export licence you can export it to one USB stick.

@Stefan Hauber: Yes Opus 10 supports about twenty languages including German.

Chuck I've used DOpus since v8. It blows Windows Explorer out of the water, and offers so much power and capability that meets my needs over the others I've tried (Altap Salamander, XYPlorer, XPlorer2, Total Commander, etc). With a standard PC/laptop license, as well as a cheap upgrade for USB, it's well worth it!

In addition, the tech support and forum is second to none!

If I remember correctly, total commander has a sort of "old school" or "Norton commander" type of look

Nothing wrong with that.
Reminds me of the "DOS for windows" types of programs.

Avi S External drive question: Currently I use Xplorer2, but one major shortcoming regards the way it holds handles on external drivers, making it impossible to perform a safe remove. For instance: If I have a number of xplorer2 windows open, and then I open an Xplorer2 window to an external drive, and then I close that last window, Xplorer2 keeps the handle to the external drive, and the only way I can safely remove the drive is if I kill the xplorer2 process altogether.
How does DO deal with this situation, in which users need to often plug in and then remove external drives? Is there a streamlined way to ask it to release all handles to a given external drive prior to removal?
Jul 9 2012 at 2:05am Copy Link
GP Software @Avi S: Opus looks for the system message that corresponds with a drive removal attempt, and releases any locks it has on the device - so safe removes are normally fine.
GP Software - Jul 9 2012 at 2:24am Copy Link
JohnW2 I've personally used DOpus for several years now, and if there was ever a Windows PC program to recommend to anyone/everyone then this would be it! It's better than 5* - really!!
The only reason I've not purchased through this offer is that I'm already licensed to use it on my 5 devices!!

So if you're wondering whether to - go right ahead! Do your PC/Windows a real favour, and purchase this offering. You'll not regret it!!

Diego SEO Hi,

I found stability problems present in previous versions of this software when I evaluated it.

Regarding most critical features and stability (and after testing a LOT of programs of this kind) I found XYplorer much more convenient to me. I especially like the search, replace and rename capabilities: very easy to use.

I would also like to say that, in general, I disagree with the concept of per-machine basis license model. I think that this software is too expensive considering it all (like the licenses and required updates for 3 or 4 machines just for personal use).

So, sorry guys, this is not for me.

Jul 9 2012 at 3:07am Copy Link
Karl M. I own Xplorer2 for many years and now I'm just testing DO 10, but I didn't find advantages so far to buy such an expensive application.

Example: I didn't find "Robust File Transfer" in DO, which I use frequently in Xplorer2.
Jul 9 2012 at 3:28am Copy Link
GP Software @Karl M: As far as I understand the "robust file transfer" feature is simply a custom file copy routine rather than using the Windows shell copy functions. Opus has always had a custom file copy function, ever since day one.

@Diego SEO: Thanks for your comments! Per-machine licencing works better for some people than for others obviously, but it's far from uncommon - presumably you have a copy of WIndows licenced on each of your 3 or 4 machines!
GP Software - Jul 9 2012 at 3:33am Copy Link
M M Could you please clarify your licensing further?
As per info here, Single Install License is good for 1 puter + personal laptop. I also found on your site that Dual Install License is good for 2 puters + personal laptop (so 3 in total)
If I add USB/U3 export for $10, does it add to the above numbers, or replaces one of them in each case (so would be USB+laptop, and puter+USB+laptop, respectively)?
I am considering an upgrade vs buying extra license - any better discount for the upgrade from v9 today?
Jul 9 2012 at 4:10am Copy Link
GP Software @M M: The USB export licence is in addition to any other licences you have. So for example, a single install licence with USB would let you have Opus installed on 1 desktop, 1 laptop, and 1 USB stick which you could then use on any other machine.
GP Software - Jul 9 2012 at 4:17am Copy Link
E. Douglas Jensen DO hardly needs any more recommendations, but I just add that comparing DO to ANY other file manager is like comparing Windows 7 to DOS 1. The features are not just vast and astounding but very carefully thought out. I have had a 5-PC license ever since V1. It is the first software I install on a new (or re-loaded) PC. I have a dozen other files managers and I never use them
Jul 9 2012 at 4:26am Copy Link
GP Software @Diego SEO: Thanks again for your comments. I don't really think this is the proper forum for philosophical discussions of this nature - if the promotion isn't to your liking no one's forcing you to buy it!

Chris Dennis A question for DO users or the developer...what sort of impact on system resources does Directory Opus have?
Love the idea of all the features, just wondering at what cost in terms of performance.
Jul 9 2012 at 5:05am Copy Link
GP Software @Chris Dennis: Depends what you're doing with it obviously, but as a simple example, with one window open just sitting there showing two folders, Task Manager shows it as using about 20MB memory and 0% CPU. A lot less than the web browser I'm typing this reply in :)

Peter C1 On the Directory Opus website front page it says: "Registered users of Opus 9 can upgrade to Directory Opus 10 at a significantly discounted price."

As an owner of D.O. v9 (in a different name to Peter C1), and to compare like with like, my question is: is it less expensive to purchase v10 (with or without any options) than it is to purchase v10 (with or without any options) during this 40% OFF promotion period?
Jul 9 2012 at 5:42am Copy Link
Mr_Yeh I also recommend The "Other Manual" to Directory Opus (http://www.asiteaboutnoth...dopus.html) which as a Dopus novice I found very helpful (including the customised configuration files). Thank you GP Software for the offer.

VLM Dr. Andus - Thank you! What a great resource.
Jul 9 2012 at 6:26am Copy Link
Jan-Christoph Ihrens @Peter C1: Why don't you take a look at the DOpus website? At you'll find your answers:

"- If you purchased Opus 9 after 31st December 2010, your upgrade is free
- If you purchased Opus 9 prior to this date, your upgrade discount is 40%
- If you own an earlier version of Opus, your upgrade discount is 10%
- You can add extra licences when upgrading and receive the same discount on the extra licences
- Any optional features you have already purchased (like Advanced FTP or USB export) will carry across to your Opus 10 licence at no extra charge"

So if you have purchased optional features, I guess it's better to upgrade, otherwise I'd buy a new license (and could use the old one for another computer).

Chintan Karnik I personally do not need such a powerhouse of a windows explorer ... I'm content with a robust copy features of Teracopy (previously promoted here on BDJ).

@Diego SEO: As a fan of BDJ, I stand with your comments.

After reading some of the comments, I'm reminded of good movie called Scent of a Woman

These are the dialogs from the movie ... it is just for fun and to clear up the air a little:

Al Pachino: How many Ferraris you sold this month?

Sales guy: That's not relevant to this discussion.

Al Pachino: Freddie, the '8Os are over. Are you tryin' to tell me these things are walkin' outta the store?

Sales guy:This is a Ferrari, sir, the finest machinery made in the automobile industry.

Al Pachino: If you like it that much, why don't you sleep with it? Why are you sellin' it?

Karl M. @Chintan Karnik:

Great comment. I don't want to buy this "Ferrari" either.
Jul 9 2012 at 7:15am Copy Link
Jan-Christoph Ihrens A Ferrari is just a nice looking status symbol, not more. And it costs ten times the price of a normal car in the middle range (at least). DOpus instead makes you more productive, and you won't find a reasonably good commercial file manager for $8.50... So I don't think this is a good comparison.

When I see what kind of crap some software guys sell for 20, 30 or even 40 dollars, and how sophisticated and feature-rich DOpus is, the (normal) price is more than justified. You can't compare this to Windows as Diego SEO did - Microsoft sells millions and millions of licences, which GPSoftware never will be able to do, no matter how cheap the price. Obviously they can live from what they do (otherwise they wouldn't have made it from the Amiga times to now), so they do sell their "Ferraris", but comparing GPSoftware with the software giants seems strange to me.

Yes, there are people out there who will never need what DOpus offers. So what? They don't need to buy it.

BTW: Al Pachino's name is Al Pacino. ;)

JohnW2 @ computersaisno - although I'm not saying this in any "official" capacity [after all I have no relationship to GP Software other than as a very satisfied customer!], I would say the answer is 'No, you wouldn't have to buy another license'. Simply install DOpus on your new device!! If at any time your installation doesn't accept the issued License code, then a quick e-mail to GP Software seems to get the matter resolved very quickly and easily. [These guys are really very very helpful!]

computersaisno @John Westbury thanks for your comments. They sound like a great company, and if they would act as so that would be a deal maker for me. I'm currently trialing DO before I buy it and it is simply fantastic. My laptop is working fine, however it's getting a little long in the tooth. It might survive 18months, or it might die next week. Even the discounted price is a lot of money to me and I would just like to know there is also some future security in my investment with this program.

VLM I'm another who has 5 licenses, THE BEST SOFTWARE. Bit of a learning curve at first, but well worth it.

Wish I had understood this when I bought:
The USB export licence is in addition to any other licences you have. So for example, a single install licence with USB would let you have Opus installed on 1 desktop, 1 laptop, and 1 USB stick which you could then use on any other machine.
Now about that USB export license ... must that be purchased when the original license is purchased, or can we add it now? (I mean, not necessarily through this promotion, but somehow. :)

I ask, because when we purchased, we really didn't understand that it was, in effect, a third license.

Jul 9 2012 at 11:30am Copy Link
JohnW2 @VLM - when I bought my DOpus, the 5 Licences came with the USB one included (i.e with me specifying it!). Suggest you check on your Help Licence Manager where it'll show what you're entitled to use. Mine shows I have 1 which never expires. HTH!!
Jul 9 2012 at 11:37am Copy Link
GP Software @Peter C1: It depends how many licences you're upgrading, for a single licence the BDJ promotion price is almost the same as the single licence upgrade price. One way would upgrade your Opus 9 to 10, the other would leave you with two licences (one for 9 and one for 10). Note the 40% upgrade discount has been available for over a year now (14 months) and this level will drop very soon, so you need to make your mind up either way quickly!

@computersaisno: Yes of couse, you can move your licences from one computer to another without restriction.

@VLM: Yes you can add on a USB export licence at any time, simply go to the My Account section on the GP Software website (
GP Software - Jul 9 2012 at 11:54am Copy Link
VLM Thanks, I'll follow up privately.

One more question about the USB export license ... if we buy it for v. 10 and then v 11 comes out, say later this year (my guess, based on nothing you've ever said), do we need to buy the USB export license again for the next version?

It's not a problem, just wishing to understand and thought others might wish the same.
Jul 9 2012 at 12:16pm Copy Link
GP Software @VLM: No you don't need to buy it again, the USB export will stay with your licence through upgrades.
GP Software - Jul 9 2012 at 12:19pm Copy Link
Tony Mackay I think there is a major problem with V10 which GP Soft have acknowledged, but not fixed.

If you have a directory with sub directories and you highlight these to move them to the root directory – ie – no longer sub directories, the programmes will ask if a directory of the same name exists whether you want to replace, skip or abort. If you select skip all then it will eventually come up with an error message – saying that the directory is not empty. If you click skip all it should add new files, but not overwrite existing files.

If you do this, then the sub directories will disappear from your sub directory tree. This happens even if the directories themselves are not empty and have not been deleted – they still remain with duplicate files in them. This is very dangerous as you will still have files in directories that you think have either been moved to the root directory or if the duplicate files remain, you have not deleted them because you don’t know they still exist.

I also don’t like the ‘merge’ option for doing this instead of the normal replace to which you can do skip all.

GP Software @Tony Mackay: I'm not sure what you hope to accomplish by posting this here - we've acknowledged the problem and it will of course be fixed. No data loss occurs, all that happens is that under certain fairly specific circumstances it can appear that a folder has been deleted when it hasn't. If you have a look at the release history of Opus ( you'll see there have been well over 700 fixes and changes since version 10 was released, so do you seriously think we won't fix this one as well?

James Kenney Is the thumb drive version 32/64bit? Or do I have install the 32 bit version on 64bit windows and then transfer it to the thumb drive? Then uninstall the 32 bit version and reinstall the 64 bit version?

Also, what about virtual machines? I have three WinXP.32bit running under Wun7Ult.64bit. Do I need extra licences for the virtual machines?
Jul 9 2012 at 1:18pm Copy Link
Tony Mackay I think Directory Opus is great. However, if that basic functionality is important, then V9 still functions OK and going to V10 now is a risk as not being able to see files that have been copied or move is a major problem for the type of user that wants more than widows explorer can do. I have paid for V10 upgrade, but am still using V9 because of that bug. I tried buying another licence on this offer today, but your payment screen seems to have a problem with AMEX at present

GP Software @James Kenney: When you export to USB you have the option of 32 bit, 64 bit, or both - if you select both the launcher will run the version appropriate to the host system.

Virtual machines aren't counted under the install licencing system - only the host physical machine is counted.

@Tony Mackay: Fair enough, obviously this bug is important to you - all I can say again is of course it will be fixed. Also as far as I'm aware you're the only person to notice/report this issue, in over 14 months, so I don't think it's quite as serious as you make it out to be. But of course we will fix it!

Jan-Christoph Ihrens @Tony Mackay: As stated above, DOpus is always open on my computer, and I'm working with it all the time. Never ever did I lose some data or experienced anything serious regarding my data.

The bug you mentioned should - and will - be fixed, but I guess it's really a very special case that you described. DOpus has hundreds and hundreds of features, and normally everything works just fine. You shouldn't reduce it to such a singularity in a place like this.

My experience is that bugs are fixed very quickly. DOpus is very actively developed.

Avi S @S.B.: Earlier today, you wrote:
"It's my main file manager (I do enjoy XYPlorer and Xplorer2 for their specialties)."

I have now purchased DO, and I hope to install it and start using it forthwith. Nevertheless, I am intrigued by your comment about XYPlorer and Xplorer2 still being relevant for their "specialties". Would you be able to please elaborate about these specialties?

Jul 9 2012 at 1:51pm Copy Link
VLM Avi S - Good question. Hard for me to imagine ... :)

I tried XYplorer for a while. The developer could not even get it set up so that it became the default explorer tool. And personally, I dislike some aspects of its UI. But that is a matter of personal preference, of course.

For me, the most important thing about DOpus is not all the features, for I suspect that very few of us actually use more than a modest subset of them. Rather, as one poster commented earlier, what matters to me is the quality of the thinking BEHIND each feature ... the comprehensiveness of each solution, the quality of implementation, the UI, etc. I am aware of few software products in ANY product category that rival DOpus in this sense.

And no, I neither work for nor have an investment in the company. :):)

Amazing how exchange rates have changed. Opus has been $85 AUD for the past 10 years but when it first came out that was equivalent to about $53 US!

Lupke Brother @ VLM,

You said: "I tried XYplorer for a while. The developer could not even get it set up so that it became the default explorer tool."

Was this a long time ago? Just wanted to say the developer of XYplorer has an excellent team of beta testers, listens to his customers, is constantly developing and making XYplorer better and better. Has free updates for life and you can install it on as many computers you want. It has a free portable version too! No problems here with setting it up as the default explorer tool (win 7 32).

I like the expensive Dopus, but not as much as XYplorer!

Berry Taylor Will DO 10 work as is with Windows 8?

Will there be a release upgrade i.e. V11 specifically to accomodate the Win 8 featureset?

What I'm asking is, when I upgrade to Windows 8 will DO continue to function or will I be forced to upgrade?

VLM Hi Lupke Brother, and thank you for your response!

You are correct, it was some time ago. And in thinking back, I have not described the problem correctly. Here is what actually happened with XYplorer:

I would like any Win Explorer replacement to honor and provide all the same context menu options that Windows Explorer provides ... if not more. But XYplorer, 64-bit, could not serve up any of the right-click options for 32-bit programs I had installed. I DID write, they did respond, and they said it could not be done. But of course Windows Explorer does it. DOpus does it. etc.

I became so frustrated that I finally shared the issue with the developer of Revo Uninstaller. He sent me a widget that would force a 32-bit item onto a 64-bit context menu.

GREAT support from Revo, and a great product, too!

XYplorer, not so much.

I do hope that I'm clear here, given my nontechnical terminology. :)

Lily I've been using DO since version 7 I think, and it's the only program I use every single day. It is hands-down the best file manager around, and to get it for a discount is amazing. (I already own it, but if you don't, what are you waiting for?!) So many years later and I'm still finding new ways to use the program. It really is a must have.

Thanks to GP Software for an incredible product.

Avi S I have purchased and installed DO, and I have found it to be completely worth every penny. Highly recommended. Coming from Xplorer2, I quickly set up DO to match my favorite shortcuts in Xplorer2, and then I was off and running. Compared to Xplorer2, DO screams - the responsiveness is much much quicker than that of Xplorer2. And DO has so many killer features, like the "flat" view, enabling an (organized) view of the files in a directory and all its descendants, all at once.
Here are a few things, though, that I've been trying to accomplish in DO that I haven't managed to do yet:
1] I'd like to add the program name to the title bar. Right now I've found options to make the title bar show the name of the current directory or the full path. But I'd like the title bar to also say "directory opus", for the various utilities that present lists of currently running programs organized by the contents of the title bar (for instance, with the ialttab autohotkey script, typing "xplor" will should me all of my xplorer2 windows. I'd like to do the same thing with DO.) Is there any way to add "directory opus" to the title bar?
2] In the keyboard map dialog, there is a filter box, which I hoped would allow me to quickly find the setting that I was looking to set (e.g., I'd like to type "clipboard" and then see all of the relevant settings that have to do with copying to the clipboard). However, it seems that the filter box only filters the particular keyboard shortcut keystroke, rather than the list of options. The former is useful, to be sure, but I'd also like to have the option of performing an incremental search on the option list. Is there a way to do this?
3] If one is viewing a folder a few levels down (say, c:\windows\system32\drivers), then one can click on various parts of the path on the blue strip above the listing in order to switch paths - e.g. one can click on "system32" or "windows" to go to those directories. However, just clicking on c:\ does not go to the c:\ root directory. In contrast, in Xplorer2, one can click on any part of the path, including the c:\ root part, in order to switch accordingly. Also, even within DO, clicking on the c:\ part on the address bar does indeed switch to the root directory. Thus, it seems to me that the lack of response to clicking on c:\ in the blue strip is inconsistent.
4] When clicking on a zip file, DO enters the zip file as if it were a directory. But it then changes the free space indicator on the bottom to 100% capacity. This scared me the first time I saw it - I thought my disk was full to capacity! - and doesn't seem very helpful in general. I understand why DO may want to avoid displaying the free space on the current drive in this situation, but I don't think writing 100% is a good solution either - instead, why not just leave it blank?

GP Software @VLM: The problem is that, at least for question #3, there's no simple answer, because this behaviour is not normal - and so it would probably require a few messages back and forth to get more information and try different things and so on. Do you really think something like that belongs on a thread for a promotion that has only a few hours left to go?

The Opus support forum is there for a reason! Don't be scared to use it :)
GP Software - Jul 10 2012 at 5:40pm Copy Link
VLM Yes, in my first draft I actually specified # 1, 2, & 4. IMO, the questions Avi S asked are reasonable in the context of people trying out a product, deciding whether to buy it, and perhaps the more so because DOpus is such a powerful and sophisticated product. In other words, more involved questions indicate interest, and one can reasonably infer that whatever one asks, many others may wish to know.

Regarding your question beginning, "Do you really think ...", this is BitsDuJour, where we have conversations, not just promotions. IMO, that is one of the truly wonderful things that distinguishes BDJ from anything and everything else of its kind and of which I'm aware.

People here are deeply inquisitive. They ask questions, share opinions and experiences. They feel gratitude toward every vendor who comes here. They honor vendors' licenses, even the ones that may seem a bit ridiculous to some. So yes, this place is indeed a bit different from other places in which a vendor might venture forth.

Guess I sound like I have a stake in this place. That's because I feel like I do! And for me, that's a very good thing.

Make sense?
