    This is quite cool. My DOpus 8 60 day free trial was due to end in 4 days and I was about to purchase a license when I received a message saying version 9 was available. So I downloaded and installed the update and have been given another 60 day free trial period. Bonus!

    That's great. I still can't decide whether to buy it or not. When I used it for a month it was of great use, but then I had to use the normal explorer again, which sucked. So if I'm not gonna use it for 60 days, I will not miss it afterwards

    As I've said before. You don't realise how good the features of DOpus are until you don't have it.

    It's quite sad to report that DOpus 9 is currently quite unstable, especially when accessing networked drives. I've been running it since I upgraded from version 8 yesterday and it has already crashed about 10 times today.

    Luckily it does recover better that 8 did. With version 8 when it crashed you often needed to reboot the PC to get a file lister to show again, but with 9 after a crash it just relaunches a new DOpus thread and you are back up and running, so not as bad.

    Hm, that's not good to hear. Does it ONLY happen when accessing networked drives?

    It so far only seems to happen when I have at least one network drive open in a listers and DOpus comes up Not Responding when I right click and drag a file to move it into one of the lister views. It doesn't crash otherwise.

    Did you try reporting the error/bug to Gpsoft? I would tell them about that problem.

    Yes, I'm going to when I get chance as it definitely seems to be a repeatable bug. At least on this PC it is.
