Just come across this tool.  It provides multiple explorer tabs in one window.  Its also free.  
Is it part of sysinternals or is sysinternals have similar tool? Any opinions about the tool? Performance issues? Compatibilities with Win2008 Server R2 64bit?
Please advice.
Thank you!

It is not part of sysinternals so far as I can see. It is available here:

I took a quick look. I use xPlorer2 (zabkat.com) and prefer xPlorer2 to what I see here. It is pretty much a matter of personal preference.

Is there anything in Sysinternals that can do same thing?  Or other  tools can do same tasks?

>>> Is there anything in Sysinternals that can do same thing?  <--- Not that I can see.

>>> Or other  tools can do same tasks?  <--- Use Explorer++ if you are happy with it.

>>> Or other  tools can do same tasks?  <--- xPlorer2 can do this kind of stuff including multiple windows. I use it all the time because it works splendidly well for me. It comes in 32-bit or 64-bit versions and I use the 64-bit version.

No it is not free. However it comes as a trial to determine if it fills your needs and it is worth the money for both acquisition and support. I pay because it works and that is worth more than free to me.

I know in Europe they like to use a Total Commander.  Not sure why?  So you are right about the personal preferences.

I have a license for Total Commander as well. I like it for its ability to work with some hidden files that Windows Explorer, xPlorer2 (and possibly Explorer++) do not see. So I find myself using Total Commander from time to time.

But I added a shortcut called Windows Explorer that is on my Start Button and it points to xPlorer2. I use this one all the time.

So I have xPlorer2 (paid), Total Commander (paid) and Windows Explorer (free with Windows). The paid offerings are inexpensive and I paid a small amount for free lifetime upgrades to xPlorer2. We shall see who lives longer :)
