Changes

  • Fixed a potential crash that could occur with My Computer view open in one window and manipulating files in the other
  • Show correct size for files of size >2GB on FTP servers
  • Fixed the random crashes experienced by some when using the shell view (non-magellan-details)
  • Fixed a hex viewer bug where data view would be "truncated" if the file contained weird non-CRLF line breaks
  • Fixed CPU usage problem
  • Ensure temporary folder is always created before attempting to use (in case other apps remove it)

Magellan Explorer is an advanced, yet easy to use, Windows file manager based on the powerful dual window pane concept. Previous users of the Norton Commander file manager software and similar tools will feel right at home. It can also act as a Windows Explorer replacement with a tree view on the left. Or you can enjoy a combination of both!

In addition to all the basic file management features found in Windows Explorer it also contains a built-in FTP client and archive manager (packer). All major file compression formats from ZIP (WinZIP), RAR and ACE to UNIX formats such as TAR and GZip are supported.

An integrated file viewer is included for instant viewing of your pictures, as well as Microsoft Office documents (Word, PowerPoint and Excel), PDF files etc. The hex file mode allows viewing of any file type.

Advanced file manipulation tools enable you to manipulate single and multiple files with ease. Powerful tools such as group rename and group attribute let’s you work on large sets of files at once, rather than dealing with each file one by one.
