File Manager Oriented
•Directory Opus: An expensive, but ultra-powerful file manager•FreeCommander: One of the few file managers that won't overwrite the contents of a destination folder during a move operation should the file(s) already exist; feature packed and FREE •MoveFilesUpFromSubfolders: The only tool I’ve ever found to flatten a directory tree from within FreeCommander or Total Commander. Very hard to find, but the MediaFire download link still works. Use with care!!!
