If I configure Microsoft Defender to not monitor Total Commander process i.e. if I set:Windows Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > Manage settings > Add or remove exclusions > Add an exclusion > Process to: C:\\Program Files\\totalcmd\\TOTALCMD64.EXE, then the directory comparison is much faster:
If you like your Windows workstation or you are forced to use Windows by your employer, here are some apps that can boost your productivity and effectiveness. Most of these tools are free and open source or at least have some type of free version available. I have tested these apps under Windows 7 and Windows 10 (with the exception of Double commander which I extensively tested only under Windows 10) and they worked without major issues.
A very good free alternative to Total Commander. Does not have all the features but you might find it sufficient for your needs. The FTP client is a bit more intuitive in Total commander in my opinion but there are things I like better in doublecmd, especially how the settings are organized. Overall Doublecmd it is still highly customizable and runs both under Linux and Windows so you can transfer your experience between the two systems. 1e1e36bf2d
