Windows Explorer is often accused of being too simple. This is why using an alternative file manager like FlexTk Express is not a bad idea.
FlexTk Express is one of those alternative file managers that enable you to control all folders and files in your hard drive. Besides this basic functionality, the program hides some really nice aces up its sleeve such as a duplicate file finder, a file hash checker and a file analyzer and classifier. This means that apart from browsing the contents of your system, you'll be able to locate duplicate files, see the most frequent file types in your hard drive and check the size of your folders with FlexTk Express –which I personally found really useful. I also loved FlexTk Express' button system to move around the folder hierarchy.
On the downside, the duplicate file tool on FlexTk Express is not as intuitive as I expected it to be. It does locate duplicate files, but I'm not that sure about the criteria used by the program, not did I like the way you delete them, which is far from being easy.
FlexTk Express is an great file explorer with some nice extra tools, some of which could be improved.
- Improved Performance of File Classification Operations
- Improved Performance of File Search Operations
- Reduced Memory Utilization
