Thank you very much for installing Ultimate File Manager. Thank you for your trust and choosing my software. I sincerely hope (and maybe even sure) that Ultimate File Manager serves you well in all tasks (from the simplest to the most complex). I hope, dear user, that you could have completed each task faster and better by focusing on doing your job, not the tool.
Ultimate File Manager (UFM) is an advanced File Manager distributed with carefully selected and configured freeware applications. The project was born out of the need to create a tool that will make working on the computer easier. The tool, that will allow you to perform any task in a simple and thoughtful way. The tool, that will be consistent and modern. The tool, that will look how I want and do what I want. I hope it suits You as well. It is thanks to You that I have continued to develop this project, despite many obstacles. I learned a lot, spent thousands of hours to make it better.
Version 10 of the project brings many fundamental changes. The most important change is the way the installer is distributed. So far, the user could download the installer in two versions - LITE and FULL. These names could seem confusing, and yet these distributions differed from each other only in the number of third-party applications (and thus in size). This form of naming has been slightly changed. We now just have the UFM 10.0 release and a special release called UFM MEGAPack. Due to the many external applications, the special edition has a large size - so large that the installer is distributed in two files (an installer file and a compressed data file).
Such a division, although it seems less convenient, has a deep meaning. What? Modern software is complicated. Antivirus software whose task is to protect our resources often report a threat that does not exist. Unfortunately, heuristics and algorithms responsible for early detection of threats are fallible. The UFM package is written using the Delphi and NSIS development environment. Unfortunately, the resulting files are often reported as a threat only because (simply put) these tools were used to create malicious applications in the past (although it is a bit more complicated). So it happens that the UFM installer file (which is safe and clean) is seen by the algorithms as a threat and is blocked! In such a situation, such a file should be reported to the publisher of the antivirus program as a so-called. False-Positive (false threat). After it is reported, the threat flag is removed and after updating the virus definitions, you can download the file to your computer without any problems and install our favorite file manager. But, UFM (MEGAPack) is a large installer - to send such a file you must fit within the limit (for example, Microsoft Defender - the default antivirus for Windows, has a sample limit of 500MiB).
In the latest version of the UFM, it was possible to bypass the 2GiB limit when compressing (creating the installer). By using an external compressor (free 7zip) I can compile a really large installer. In addition to creating an installer that consists of two files (UFM MEGAPack), it is also possible to compile it as a web installer. The resulting installer is relatively small in size, and all data is fetched from an external server during installation. This has a number of advantages, but also requires constant access to the Internet. This form of installer will be available in the future.
In future release, I will focus on an equally important matter, which is the target directory of the UFM installation. In a normal installation, all files are copied to the Program Files directory. This directory is not an ordinary directory. It is not possible to save files there (to do so, the installer modifies the appropriate permissions - this situation is not optimal and it is time to change it).
Ultimate File Manager is dedicated to all its users. It is thanks to you that this project is still developing and becoming more complete and user-friendly with each release. Ultimate File Manager is a non-commercial product! The project brings no material benefit. It is created out of passion for You and me.
It's up to you whether there will be another Public Release. It is up to you whether it makes sense to further develop this wonderful project. I have many ideas for further development, but you know... ideas are not the only thing that counts...
