This page contains a list of changes to Total Commander during it's development. The list starts at the latest change and goes back in time. Note that some versions of Total Commander were developed in parallel. That's why some modification dates of later versions are earlier than modification dates of earlier versions.

After the release of version 7.0 two branches were being developed. Besides the further development of version 7.0, version 6.56 was also further developed for people that did not want to or could not upgrade to version 7.0. Thus, version 6.57 and 6.58 were released at the same time version 7.02 and 7.03 were released. [1] [2]

The latest changes to Total Commander can also be found in the file HISTORY.TXT. There is also a full list of changes maintained by Panos Davitidis (user pdavit).

This is a very big page and your browser and operating system may not be able to handle this. As an alternative you can download this page and view it using Total Commander's lister. You can also view sections of this page, see Category:Lists of changes.

  • (17.10.10) Fixed: Increased maximum possible stack size from 1/4 to 1/2 MByte, otherwise some plugins like ShellDetails may crash on load
  • (15.10.10) Fixed: Compare by content, edit one file externally so the two are the same, let the compare tool recompare -> Message "Identical" was shown, but no file content
  • (15.10.10) Added: Calculate occupied space: Show size also in kBytes, MBytes and GBytes
  • (15.10.10) Added: Button bar, start menu: Two new placeholders, %v and %V: Adds virtual file name (%v: just the name, %V: with full path) instead of redirected path to command line in plugins like Temporary panel

  • (12.10.10) Fixed: Moving selected folders+files to their parent (drag to [..]) could overwrite files, e.g. when a subdir contains files with same name -> move this subdir at the very end (see http://www.hardtoc.com/archives/198)
  • (12.10.10) Fixed: Windows 7 no longer showed overlay icons for shared folders -> show our own if there is no other overlay for that folder!

  • (05.10.10) Fixed: Regular expressions, Unicode (e.g. in multi-rename tool): Disallow pattern ^?? because it causes a crash (replace by ^? as for ANSI regex searches)
  • (01.10.10) Fixed: Drag&Drop from search->feed to listbox not working on network shares. Now it should work when all selected files are on the same share (\\server\share)
  • (30.09.10) Fixed: Don't check for shield overlay icon on UNC paths because it seems to be very slow
  • (30.09.10) Fixed: File lists: Cache per file icons again, so they show up immediately when they were shown before, but always reload them in the background thread
  • (30.09.10) Fixed: Lister didn't support case-insensitive backwards search in UTF-8 files
  • (30.09.10) Fixed: Start editing comment (Ctrl+Z) while background packing of TGZ archive active, save comment (F2) -> access violation (only occurs when 'watch directory changes' is off)
  • (30.09.10) Fixed: Archive with encrypted file names (e.g. RAR): Pressed F3 on <Encrypted -> F5> text -> error message was shown, but cursor remained an hourglass

  • (28.09.10) Fixed: FTP: User had to re-enter server password (instead of master password) after closing TC with ftp connection on different tab, when this tab was locked with directory changes allowed
  • (28.09.10) Fixed: Create CRC checksums, give name of existing directory as target file name -> Error that controls were deleted in background thread
  • (28.09.10) Fixed: Windows Vista/7: Do not follow junctions (reparse points) located on network drives when the target drive differs, because the stored target is an absolute path, so the redirection would go to a local directory
  • (28.09.10) Fixed: RAR packer: -sfx was passed twice to the packer when creating self-extracting archives
  • (28.09.10) Fixed: Verify CRC checksums: Could not abort verification while no files were found to be checked, e.g. because the crc file was moved to a different directory

  • (28.09.10) Fixed: FTP master password not working when longer than 64 bytes (after converting it to UTF-8 internally)

  • (27.09.10) Fixed: Delete directories, one of them is locked because it's the current dir in another program -> user closes program, clicks "retry" -> only that directory is deleted, but the delete operation stops
  • (27.09.10) Fixed: Also ignore trailing spaces in XXE-Encoded files
  • (27.09.10) Fixed: Select files (Num+"+"): Function couldn't handle selection by size properly for files > 2GB

  • (26.09.10) Fixed: When using "watch directory changes" and closing Word, some temporary files didn't disappear from the list (because watching for list changes was temporarily suspended) -> do not suspend it when staying in same dir

  • (11.04.10) Fixed: FTP: Crash when starting transfer in background, only after connection via "FTP New Connection" (Ctrl+N)
  • (11.04.10) Fixed: Custom columns view: In search results view (after 'feed to listbox'), TC did not pass the DOS 8.3 names to non-Unicode plugins even if the files had Unicode names where Windows converted the accented chars to unaccented instead of ?

  • (17.05.06) Fixed: The already running instance of TC wasn't restored when minimized to tray and only 1 instance allowed when starting TC again

  • (03.03.06) Fixed: When unpacking, remove relative paths in the form ..\ or ...\ (any number of dots >=2) -> this would place the file in the parent dir, which is a potential security risk
  • (03.03.06) Fixed: Lister: Printing selection printed junk in the first line if the selection was made beyond the beginning of the file
  • (01.03.06) Fixed: Right click -> New submenu: look in "All Users\Templates" if template not found in "<username>\Template"
