Disadvantages:Unlike Total Commander, this program lacks the file transfer queue. Users are also not able to switch to a one-panel view, no matter how low the panel rating is set.

Disadvantages: The program, while easy to find, is not as streamlined or easy to use as it could be. The program is clunky, and does not allow for file transfer queues or multi-file naming.
