This is my favorite file manager, very powerful but slow when a lot of small files are to copied/moved.
Also it creates its configuration files in user folders.

Multi Commander 5.0.0 (Build 1888) has been released.

MultiCommander has a bug in log into other directories. I could not log into directories reliably. =( Check the directories you enter with MC!

ShareX version 11.3.0 is labelled "Pre-release" (unstable), this is also implied by the download link provided at the official web-site (for version 11.2.1) and by the structure of the archive (ShareX-portable.zip).

Jaex on 2016-09-29 09:17

@smaragdus fixed portable zip structure now.

smaragdus on 2017-03-22 14:26

ShareX is not stealth, it creates "ShareX.exe.log" in AppData (C:\Users\UserNAme\AppData\Local\Microsoft\CLR_v4.0\UsageLogs).

Sorry, but i can't find version 6.03 on the website. It's still 4.60

Midas on 2014-07-15 09:34

FYI, Tunnelier has been renamed Bitvise SSH Client and the current third party PAF repack is v4.60 Rev 2.0 (see http://tp.vbap.com.au/download). The current upstream Bitvise SSH Client is v6.03 (changelog at http://www.bitvise.com/ssh-client-version-history). Both still freeware...

For a freeware portable server alternative, check out Stunnel (http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21551). For a freeware non-portable server, see SilverSHielD (http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21461).

@billon: you can delete your mistaken post by pressing the can icon at the far right...

The site dedicated to the portable version (see my comment above) is dead. Entry links corrected.

I Just hope this excellent editor won't go from "complete" to "bloated" and from lots of MB to fews of GB in size :)

joby_toss on 2015-11-15 07:56

I used UPX to bring the size down to about 70MB, but I haven't fully tested the functionality afterwards...

zorro on 2016-09-27 20:27

Just for completion: not stealth, leaves a folder "CEF" in AppData/Local/ behind - has something to do with dictionaries (disabling the auto correction does not help)
