"Every file manager provides basic operations such as
to create, open, view, edit, search, rename, move copy, and delete
files. However, file managers typically come supplied with
sophisticated functionality including network connectivity,
directory synchronizing, archive handling, advanced searching,
shortcuts, file/folder comparisons, checksums, plugins, and more,
making them an incredibly powerful tool.
"There are 3 main types of file managers covered in this
feature. Orthodox file managers or "Commander-like" file managers
have three windows (two panels and one command line window). The
second type is the navigational file manager representing the most
common type of file manager available today. We also have included
a few examples of the best available spatial file managers, which
present files and folders as if they were real objects. A file
manager is software which provides a user interface to assist in
the organisation of files. It helps users with their daily work in
managing their files on a hard drive or other storage device. With
terabyte hard disks becoming prevalent, file managers represent an
essential tool in managing file systems."
