Quoted from the original 1990 announcement:
"XTree 2.00E is an evaluation version - try it for 30 days at no cost. This version is similar to the first version of XTree that came out in the mid-80's and can be considered a collectors item. This self-extracting ZIP-file also includes a 32-page documentation/manual."
Shareware from late XTree Company.

*Warning*: This is a Shareware distribution of the second ever version of XTree, released in 1985, at a time when 10 MB or so hard disks still were an expensive and optional device, and common 5.25" floppies had a typical capacity of 180 or 360 kB ! So the maximum of 2,500 files and 180 directories XTree 2 is able to log were absolutely sufficient theses days, however, you definitely won't be able to log any of today's hard disks with such limitations !! So remember, this package is nothing but a kind of *museum_exhibit*, which you can run on a floppy disk just for fun, but not at all this is a file manager for any serious use on a modern computer system !!!

FileMaster is a file manager modeled very closely to XTreeGold. It provides exactly the same screen, user interface and hotkeys as the former. Furthermore some additional commands are supplied, for example extended archiving capabilities (prepared for dealing with new PKZip as well as RAR versions). Program comes with a German and an English version, while most texts are German language only (yet).

"ZTreeWin is a text-mode file/directory manager for Windows 32bit operating systems. It has been developed as a native Win32 alternative to the DOS product XTreeGold (tm), now that its makers have abandoned further development. Whilst you are surely well aware of the virtues of XTreeGold, you know the disadvantages of it being a 16-bit DOS program. Kim G. Henkel wrote ZTreeWin to provide all the functionality we are so accustomed to, while avoiding all the DOS imposed limitations."

This is an executable binary of "ytree" version 1.64 (initially written for Unix systems), compiled with >DJGPP and ready-to-run under Win9x (and possibly NT) systems, thus providing a free of charge 32bit XTree clone for a couple of different operating systems. But be warned, this is still a user interface designed for Unix-like environments, so some things may look somewhat strange on a Win32 system, or even won't work at all! Most important of all to know, ytree always scans *the_entire* directory tree, from where it is called from, so if you run it from "C:\" it reads in you entire disk "C" (and this may take a while on some systems...).

NOTE: Before configuring this resourceful utility for ZTreeWin, you have to place a file named "xtg.exe" in your ZTree directory; you don't need the real XTreeGold executable file to do this, because the contents of the file is irrelevant, it can be a line of plain text or anything else. The configuration routine just looks for a file named "xtg.exe" in the directory specified as "XTreeGold" path.

"Xtcon" is a configuration quick-selector for XTree(Pro)Gold (and can also be used with ZTreeWin), written by Robin Clarke. It starts Xtree with any of 7 selectable configuration files (Xtgold.cfg), for different screen colours, editors, log-options etc.
The DOS utility "" is required and must be on the DOS path.
Xtree is started from Xtcon by selecting a configuration. Changes made within Xtree to this configuration may later be saved as an update to that configuration option by re-running Xtcon and choosing Option "S". Xtcon is useful for a) boot floppies for general use where the video and other hardware might be different, b) experimenting with improvements to colours etc so that different styles may be quickly compared, c) making sure your favourite setup is backed up and easily retrievable after some inadvertent configuration changes (like accidentally returning to the default).
