Total Commander for the Mac

I've used Total Commander (TC) for about 25 years, and I can't use a Windows computer without it. Fortunately, I don't have this issue with a Mac, but I've wanted the same functionality every so often. I've tried as many as I could find, and I've liked two—Crax Commander and another one no longer being developed. I've bought Total Commander years ago, and gladly bought both versions of Crax Commander (App Store and the other one). My TC muscle memory is strong and Crax maps most of them to the Mac. I've even set my function keys to be just fn keys. Crax is not perfect (I have minor issues over network shares), but it is easily the best for the Mac. It is pretty responsive with a rich array of modifications. Definitely recommended for those used to Total Commander, and for those needing two-pane file manipulations.

Great Total Commander alternative!

I was looking for a Total Commander alternative for Mac, but most of the apps out there are crap.
This is a surprise, and a great, nice looking native Mac app!
Keep up the good work.

The best file manager app for OSX

For a long time on Windows I was using Directory Opus as my File Manager and got used to a powerful and flexible file management tool.
After switching to OSX I was looking for something similar, but couldn't find anything. Tools that allow customization wouldn't support SSH/SFTP and vice versa.
Well, looks like the search is over: CRAX Commander has most of the features that I am looking for. And it is also evolving and improving, so I'm sure that what is missing will be added soon.
Latest version (1.10.10) fixed one annoying permissions issue which existed in AppStore version of the app. I am happy to say that I reported the issue and development team was very attentive and quickly fixed it.

All in all: great tool, highly recommended!
