Hi,

Is there a utility that will monitor and display the number of files in a folder automatically?

As I download files, the utility will show me the number of files in the folder.

I use xPlorer2 (zabkat.com). It is a very nice File Explorer (a working tool). In the status bar on the bottom, it shows me the number of files in a folder and the number of bytes of the files. It keeps this up to date.

I think Total Commander (ghisler) does the same thing, but I like xPlorer2 better.

Do you use it as a replacement or just as a utility from time to time?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I use xPlorer2 as a replacement. I do use Windows Explorer from time to time, and I use Total Commander occasionally. But 90% of the time, when I reach for "a File Explorer", I grab xPlorer2 and use it. I purchased a permanent license for renewals so I can keep it up to date.

When I add files to a folder, if there are 16 files I add, sometimes it says 15 until I hit refresh. Any ideas on that one?

I use a lot of different folders, so anytime I change folders it is up to date.  If I am in a folder and change or add a lot files, I just routinely hit Ctrl-R  as that is the refresh.

So I have not run across that particular instance that your describe.  That is likely because I am in and out of folders quite often.
