Windows Explorer is a reasonable tool for managing your files and documents. But it hasn't really changed for years and, while we all wait for the new version of Explorer, this doesn't enable us to get our work finished more efficiently and effectively within Windows Vista.
FreeCommander is a Windows Explorer replacement that will enable you to work with multiple folders more quickly.
For instance, freeCommander has the facility to open a dual-panel window, which means you can have two folders (or hard drive contents) open within both windows, and then simply drag files to and from each window.
With built-in support for different archive formats and the ability to synchronise between different folders, you can quickly compare the contents of two folders and then choose to update the destination window with only the updated or new content.
This is an excellent option when you want to remotely access and update your homepage. Open the local folder contents within one window and the remote contents in the other window pane, compare the contents then synchronise.
