Windows explorer is notorious for leaving you in the cold whenever errors disrupt a large copy e.g. across the network. You are left wondering which files where copied and how to restore order.
xplorer² takes the worry off your file copies with a range of useful options. You can have many parallel background transfers or queue them sequentially. There are several overwrite policies (confirm/rename/check dates), size management, and optional clearing of the read-only attribute when copying from CDs.
You can pause and resume transfers, even leave them completely unattended: no questions will be asked and any unexpected events or errors will be logged. This is ideal for network administrators performing routine backup operations.
Likewise when you delete files with xplorer² you can skip any "files in use" errors and continue deleting the rest of your files.
At the same time it remains shell-friendly, seamlessly integrating with most namespace and other shell extensions. Exotic shell features like custom icon overlays (e.g. TortoiseSVN) are also supported.
