I agree, but it's not cheap at all, even for the upgrades you'll have to pay. I do like Total Commander a lot, because I've bought it a long time ago and till now I've never paid for an update/upgrade. You also have several plugins you can use with it, which make life easier. If you want a powerful one, go for Directory Opus. If you want a cheap and user friendly file explorer, go for Total Commander. I've never tried a free one, but I'm satisfied with the ones I have. Both are great.
