I agree 100% with dl@... who says that File Explorer in WIndows 8 (referred to henceforth as FEW8) "still pales in comparison to Directory Opus". I've purchased Directory Opus for both home and work and have never regretted it. It's what File/Windows Explorer (WE henceforth) should have been and never was. I'd like to know whether in Windows 8 you can print a list of the contents of a folder, something missing in all versions of WE I've ever encountered yet a highly useful function. Can you Connect to an FTP site and treat it just as another folder? Can you filter the contents of a folder? Can you do a multiple file rename in one move (I use this a lot for renaming photograph files)? Can you view files within WE? The answers to all these questions and many more are an emphatic "Yes" in Directory Opus. I got my first version as a freebie on a magazine disc many years ago and was so impressed I bought the then current version. I've also has excellent technical support on the rare occasion that I needed it. Forget WE; it's a poor limited program compared with Directory Opus.
