MS-DOS & Win 3.x
I always use Norton Commander, because the double navigation panel, greatly simplified me the copying of files, even between two PCs with the option to transfer files via the parallel or serial port. :D

I am using the Volkov Commander, because it is fast und it does support Long File Names with DOSLFN under MS-DOS 7.x and 8.0.
In addition it is a small DOS application, which is programmed in assembly.

I use NC. It supports LFN under windoze 98 etc. It's most like file commander/2 and its windoze clone.

I rarely manage files in DOS, but when I do, I use DOSShell, along with a mouse driver. Simple, yet effective.

Where do you want to go today?

Favourite OS
All Microsoft operating systems!
To manage files under MS-DOS: Windows 3.1x! :)

Even though Windows 3.x is actually an operating system, since it runs alongside MS-DOS, I prefer that to using MS-DOS itself for file management, especially when Windows 3.x offers File Manager, Notepad, and Write, as well as for multitasking between applications.

Norton Commander. I used it under DOS because I used Midnight Commander under Linux and it worked quite well.

I use MS-DOS Shell, One of the reasons is because it came with MS-DOS, But if i wanted to use MS-DOS 6.2 i could install the MS-DOS shell from the Supplemental Disk

I use Norton Commander, because it is fast and handy even without using a mouse.

I personally prefer using the bare MS-DOS shell. It gives me that wonderful feeling of, I don't know how to call it, "vanilla nostalgia".
