Download.com Review of Useful File Utilities:
A simple file manager for advanced users, Useful File Utilities picks up where the standard Windows
Explorer leaves off. Its two-panel interface calls to mind the popular Norton Commander, but here you
have the Basket, a clipboard for files. The suite's main tools, Finder, Replacer, and Renamer, help
you make quick work of file searching, text replacement, and bulk renaming across a range of file
formats and attributes. Useful File Utilities even can change attributes, such as Hidden or Date of
Creation for several files at once. This utility will appeal to file wranglers who have found the
functionality of Windows Explorer insufficient for their needs.
