Dick Oz Used to work with Power Desk and much to my regret I concluded that developments stopped on that fabulous file explorer. I tried many explorer replacements and sometiems little features did prevent me to choose an alternative (such copy full directory/file name to clipboard and a good directory sync oiption )

I finally found Directory Opus ( It is maintained, improved, it's fast and has an active user community. I think it's an 'anything you can do I can do better' program. And if a feature it's not available: program it.

The only disadvantage I found is it's expensive, a real bits du jour candidate

I can only second this suggestion. I am using Directory Opus for almost one year now and don't want to miss it. It is stable, saves you many clicks and almost everything in it can be configured to your needs. It can be used as a simple replacement for MS explorer, but also serve as a 'Swiss army knife' for filehandling if you like to.

Roger Thomasson Directory Opus is one of our most suggested titles. Unfortunately, we haven't yet been able to convince them to participate in a BDJ promotion. But we're not giving up!

BitsDuJUser I have not bought this software since two years. THE REASON IS THE PRICE!

Working with computers, one knows that an activity demands all kinds of utilities and tools. If I sit down to list all the tools and utilities, then I may end up in paying 5.000 US dollars a minimum.

So Opus was on the top of my list based on my requirements and the last in the purchase.

We have three computers, of which two are frequently used. Hence, if I were to buy Opus, then I would pay at least $ 100 US dollars.

Instead, we purchased the product FileCenter from for a bit more. The FileCenter is a completely different product that goes away pretty far from Opus, however relates to our daily needs, the most important one.

The differences and commonality between Opus and FileCenter is that the two programs are so completely different but belongs to the same family of daily needs that should be combined.

Although the programs are different, the corporate arrogance is common.

If I were to bark (like a dog!) on one of the developer of one program, I could simply list all the functions of the other program and declare them to be foolish not to have included in their functions.

So Roger, if you did not have any success with the developers in convincing them, I do appeal you to make one more and the LAST REQUEST! If they do not, it is not worth trying, as I do have a lot of experience in smelling corporate arrogance and it shall not help any.

In fact both should bring out a combined offer with a combimned software. mind you, I - as a registered user of FileCenter- may not profit from a combined offer at all. But others shall.

Roger Thomasson Sorry folks, I did make one last request and was given the thumbs down. I'll try again in 6 months to a year, but for now I think we've got to close the books on Directory Opus...

Not the greatest of deals, but they now list it at 30% off (about $53 USD) as an "end of the year sale".
        Dec 9 2009 at 4:44pm
Jon Koerner I, too, after very long hesitation, finally bit when it went on sale in December 2009, got the 5-user pkg for about $155 US, regularly $225.

I like the program, but I too think it's a bit overpriced, and I too sense a whiff of arrogance over there at GPSoft. ("Dr. Greg Perry" (Mr. "GP") put me in my place after a critical comment, despite that I too have a Ph.D. and over 30 years experience with this stuff.)

Sorry they're unwilling to participate with BitsduJour. I think that's shortsighted of them, since they're not exactly a household word.. For every one they'd sell here at a discount, they'd probably receive two or more customers in return (colleagues/friends of the BitsduJour purchasers).

Thanks Roger for your persistence with them.
