Access Android Devices Easily with TotalAndroid Plugin for Total Commander
Many of you are most likely familiar with Total Commander. For those who aren’t, it’s an alternative to Windows Explorer. I can’t possibly imagine why anyone would ever want to replace Explorer, but apparently many people do (tongue-in-cheek).Perhaps it has something to do with a whole bunch of features that Explorer lacks, such as side-by-side file browsing, enhanced searching, and plug-ins.
This leads me to TotalAndroid, a plug-in for Total Commander developed by XDA Forum Member blagoev. It provides users with the ability to interact with their Android devices directly from Total Commander. It offers features such as:
» Access your Android devices without remounting the USB card.
» Access as many devices as you want.
» Connect using the USB cable or Wirelessly
» Manage file and folders, upload and download files.
» Designed from the ground up with speed in mind.
» Uses the most advanced framework for Total Commander plugins.
There is nothing to install on the device itself. Simply add the plug-in to your existing Total Commander installation, and you’re good to go. If you think this might be of use to you, head on over to the original thread or the TotalAndroid site for more info.

It's a slippery slope...
