You can use it to access and modify the files and directories on your server via FTP or direct file access.
eXtplorer runs natively under Joomla! 1.0 - 3.2 and can also be used as a standalone app.
When I clicked on eXtplorer under the Components Menu, a question would pop out and say "Detected = Joomla 1.013 Hotfix required. Do you have the Hotfix for Joomla 1.013? YES NO"
If you click on NO, it will re-direct back to Administrator Home, and if you clicked YES without installing the hotfix(which is nowhere to be found around the internet), then the hotfix question would keep popping up.
Can the developer please release the hotfix for download?
Apparently some things may be slower than the old JoomlaXplorer, but if that is so (I don't notice it), it is more than made up for by the speed of the file management features. Of particular note is the way the whole pathway is at the top in drop down boxes. Need a different sub-directory? Use the end box. Back two levels? No problem. Four levels deep, and want to switch to another directory off the root? Just use the first drop down box. I like it better than the tree, and you don't have to scroll up and down a long tree.
Right-click file features are also great, as well has syntax highlighting. The only area I can see that needs improvement is the file editor: it is a fixed size which is not big enough. You can make the window bigger, but not the editing area. That's not quite enough for me to bump it from Excellent to Good, but I would take off half a star for that. I guess that means I give it an A-.
Thanks for a great program.
Why couldn't I run it in Joomla 1.0.13?
Anyway, it works fine, and serves all my sites, although I have to access my J 1.0.12 site to use it.
No problem deleting and now I'm ready to do a fresh joomla install.
Thanks Soeren / Great tool !

My only complaint (minor) with the new version is the "back to Joomla!" bar when you go to edit mode. It would be nice if you didn't actually leave the Joomla! administrator page and it just ran in a wrapper. Keep it simple.
joomlaXplorer 2 renamed to eXtplorer!
In the future the joomlaXplorer project will be continuing as "eXtplorer". eXtplorer is the joomlaXplorer version 2, plus re-activated stand-alone capabilities.
While the joomlaXplorer 1.x branch is maintained under the old name, eXtplorer will be developed as a File Manager without having Joomla! as a requirement, but as an option.
This means you can install eXtplorer into Joomla as a...
Yes, it is slightly slower than the joomlaXplorer 1.6. But on the other hand you get a better file managment
