From the creators of Proforms and Mad4Joomla.
ProFiles maps the look and feel of a desktop file explorer to the web. The usage of this web file explorer is almost the same as you know it from your favorite operating system.
Even system-related characteristics such as short keys for element selection are taken into account per operating system. If you run ProFiles in a Windows™ environment you can use the Windows™ short keys which in turn differ on an OSX™ environment.
The Joomla™ version of ProFiles additionally supports Joomla’s ™ rights management.
ProFiles is used at the backend of Joomla™.
ProFiles allows you to create multiple `root folders`. Based on user groups you can apply different rights to the user groups for each root folder. Thereby you can exactly determine which user group may view, read or write to a certain root folder.
One of the most convenient functions of this web file manager is the support of drag and drop uploads for modern browser. Just mark your files on your desktop and drag them to the folder listing of ProFiles. Each file will be uploaded with a progress bar.
All USP’s at a glance:
★ Supports all standard file actions which are given by PHP (Your server must allow this)
★ Easy drag’n drop upload for modern browsers.
★ Select / deselect files /folders with the operating system’s shortcuts.
★ Edit / read text based files directly in ProFiles (Source Code, XML, TXT …)
★ Listen to mp3’s, midi files or see FLV videos.
★ View images in preview mode and / or open them with ProFiles.
★ ZIP / UNZIP files and folders.
★ Upload ZIP files and directly unzip the content to the folder. (Only for normal uploads)
★ Search and sort folder or file listings.
★ Apply multiple root folders.
★ Apply rights to the root folders per user group.
★ Has a built-in diagnosis mode which tells you if ProFile’s functions are supported by your server.
★ Unique user experience by an excellent UI.
IE 9+, FF19+, Chrome 24+, Safari 5+ and Opera 12+

Older browsers may also be (partially) supported.

One small glitch I encountered: The files and folder names are not sorted alphabetically neither in the folder tree nor in the file list. I can sort them in the file list by clicking on the "Name" header but not in the folder tree.
I now give it a 9/10 but with that glitch fixed, it would be a perfect 10 for me!
The problem is with Safari 6.05 under Mountain Lion, the drag and Drop feature starts working but never ends the upload of the files even it says that 100% has been loaded. The progress circle goes on and on and only when you cancel starts to upload the second file, bur finally files are never uploaded.
When uploading through list mode it works with no problem.
And the dislike is about opening folders with double click, it does not work, it opens a contextual menu where you can click on open/edit option, but no direct folder opening through double click.
But I have a little problem with it. I tried to remove a few files from the administrator/languages/en-GB directory. Marked three files (CTRL+Click) and clicked on Delete button. Successfully deleted all files from this directory, not only the selected files! Please fix this problem! Joomla 2.5.11 Thank you!
Profiles is a must have tool for every Joomla user.
Without exaggeration this component let me forget that using a web application at the back-end of Joomla.
