GPSoftwares Directory Opus (or Dopus in slang) is a Windows Explorer replacement. It adds built-in FTP, advanced multi-file renaming capabilities, dual column customizable interfaces and a plethora of other features. I just purchased it at a 30% year-end discount, and I have to admit it’s the best bucks I’ve spent in a long time. Directory Opus is, quite simply, the best Explorer tool on Windows. The only gripe I have with Dopus is that the default configuration (which is fortunately supremely tweakable) is horrifically ugly.
Re-reading this micro-review, I realize that it may sound like an ad, but I assure you I have no stock in GPSoftware, nor have I received any sort of payment for these words.
