Welcome to the club! There are lots of people still running, and loving, XTGOLD.

No, XTGOLD and ZTreeWin will happily co-exist. They can even share files! See the ZTreeWin Tips and Tricks page at >http://www.ztree.com/html/tips.htm for more about this. You'll also find lots of ZTreeWin references here on the XTree Fan Page website.

Yep, XTree is a great combination of a lot of basic PC utilities. Too bad it's development was discontinued just before the advent of long file names, large memory spaces and huge hard disks. This really restricts and limits XTree's use these days.

ZTree picks up where XTree left off and handles today's long file names, large memory spaces, and huge hard disks with ease. And it uses your own favorite external zip/unzip utilities and editor programs , so it doesn't restrict you or get outdated.

Plus, the author of ZTree reads and heeds your comments and suggestions at the ZTreeWin Forum at >http://www.serve.com/vico/bbs1/config.cgi in addition to providing unlimited e-mail support. Most of the differences you'll find between XTreeGold and ZTreeWin were requested by ZTreeWin users in order to enhance the venerable XTreeGold interface for today's 32-bit Windows environments.

After the trial version 1.41 of ZTreeWin you might want to try the latest beta version available at >http://www.ztree.com/html/beta.htm to see even more enhancements that are about to be released in the new ZTreeWin version 1.50 soon.

Hope this helps you!
