Compressed files serve a very important purpose: squeezing your files into a single container. When you send emails, you cannot attach folders – attachments need to be files. You can simply compress the folder into a single compressed archive and email it. But when you download an archive to extract its contents, not all file extractors let you preview the archive’s contents. Furthermore, even if you preview the archive’s contents, you still need a separate application upload files to your site through an FTP client.
Here to solve those problems by helping you in a great way is an app called Total Commander.
Total Commander is an excellent desktop application for 32 bit and 64 bit Windows computers. The app serves as an archive uncompression tool.
You can use the application to open ZIP, ARJ, LZH, RAR, UC2, TAR, GZ, CAB, and ACE archive formats. On the left most pane you find a file explorer. To the right the application has two panels in which you can open two folders or archives at the same time. These panels display the contents of archives for you to preview. You can extract all files in an archive or only individual ones.
Site owners can connect their FTP server and make use of the built-in FTP client within Total Commander. This greatly saves you the need of an extra client. PORT connections to other PCs can also be made.
The application offers a good number of customization options to help you set things according to your own preferences.
People who run upload files through FTP clients and download many archives will find Total Commander to be very helpful.
Total Commander is shareware application that comes with a 30 day evaluation period. Its full license can be bought for US$44.
