Need Total Commander equivalent for Mac OS X? Try new Disk Order for Mac OS X

LikeMac Group has released Disk Order 2.1, the latest update of a utility for advanced file management on Mac OS X.

The new version contains several features that considerably improve usability of the application. The most useful of them are command buttons for copying, moving and trashing that appear at the bottom of main window and pulldown drives menu, similar to same menu in the Windows-only shareware file manager Total Commander. Now users can save their time by quickly selecting drives in menu instead of pressing Drives button. In addition, now every operation in Disk Order has a disclosure triangle with piece of useful information. This gives the ability to, for example, see how much time is left to complete file copying/moving.

The appearance of Get Info window has changed too. It is now much richer and contains more information, including file preview, color marking, Spotlight Comment and more. All information is organized into disclosing sections and can be easily shown or hidden. Apart of interface changes, FTP support has been upgraded to support Socks5 proxy and to work correctly on SFTP connections. Also, many other bugs have been fixed.

Disk Order was designed to be a Finder substitution that could offer users time-saving double-panel interface and ultimate file management at the same time. It best suits those who used to work on other platforms with applications like Total Commander or Directory Opus. Also, it’s a great choice for portables owners as it allows to perform nearly all file operations with fast key combinations, saving time and omitting frustration from using trackpad in Finder.

The application is available in two versions, PowerPC and Universal Binary. Both versions can be downloaded free of charge as 30-day trial shareware (US$22.57).

  1. I’ve been using Disk Order for some time now. Great program. Upgrades are free until the next major release (1.x, 2.x, etc.)

    When my computer’s hard drive (a Seagate drive)failed about a year and a half ago on my 7-month old Mac (ahem Apple) and I hadn’t made a back up copy of my applications (shame on me), LikeMac was kind enough to verify I had purchased Disk Order and resend the license key.

    The only problem that I had was using the built-in FTP program. Earlier versions simply would not connect. Problem has been fixed.

    Again, highly recommend Disk Order.
