XYplorer has a strange support for unicode - it can manipulate files with unicode characters (In particular, Georgian unicode characters) in their filenames, i.e. it can show, copy, move, delete, etc. them, but when I try to rename a file, it writes just "question marks" instead of characters.

And this applies to both free and paid versions.

@Wallax: thanks for checking it -- update reverted.

They did update their shareware version, 1t's a real 15.9. As for the free one, it's still at 15.8. As far as I understand, it's kind of their company policy: the free version is released later than the paid one.

@Wallax: please confirm in the release log, at http://www.xyplorer.com/release_15.90.php ...

My belief is the download page hasn't had its text properly updated.

It is version 15.80.0100, not 15.90.0000.

Portable device support is in the "Pro" version, but not in the free version.

@ ghielbert
Portable device support is currently still in heavy development for the last few weeks so it's not fully working yet and is only available in the beta versions. As for your other problems, it works perfectly for me so there might be something unique about your installation so go check out the forums and they will try to see what could possibly conflict with it. Although just to note, contrary to what you normally do in Windows Explorer, you want to Shift-Select by clicking on the file names rather than the icons.

@ghiebert - You should probably file bug reports with the developer of XYplorer. But, thanks for letting us know!

I have vs 14.40.0200 free, which I obtained a few months back to try out. While it looks and runs really well, it has a few serious flaws which will keep me from upgrading or using it at all.
First of all I have trouble selecting multiple files for a move or copy when using Shift-LeftMouse, sometime I use continually. Second, I cannot simply drag an image file into a Googgle email. I have to try 3 or 4 times until it finally drags over.
Third, I simply cannot see my Canon camera when it is connected, and I don't think I can see other portable drives either. Perhaps a slightly newer version has fixed that.
These are basic functions of any file explorer but they are not working properly at all, however check it out for yourself. Otherwise, in normal use I have no issues with daily tasks.
Running Win7 64bit 12gb.

XYplorer is getting better.

It has lower, overall memory usage than CubicExplorer (the file manager I currently use), but the menu and admin interface is a little clunky. I might switch to this down the road.
