The best free Windows Explorer replacement

Anyone who tries to do any serious file management quickly runs into the limitations of Windows Explorer. There are lots of more powerful replacements available but most of these are expensive commercial products. The best free version has long been 2xExplorer and the good news is the vendors of that product have now developed an even more powerful product called Xplorer**2 (the **2 is my plain text transcription of a superscript "2"). A shareware "Pro" version is available but what interests me is their free "Lite" version that offers all the features of 2xExplorer plus 31 more! Impressive to say the least. Try it. Once you get used to a two pane file manager, you’ll wonder how you ever worked without it. Free for home or academic use. 575KB.
