GNOME Commander

GNOME Commander is a fast and powerful graphical file manager. It has a "two-pane" interface in the tradition of Norton and Midnight Commander. It features drag'n'drop, GNOME MIME types, FTP, SFTP, and WebDAV using the GnomeVFS FTP module, SAMBA access, the ability to extend the context menu with entries to call external applications or scripts on the selected items, quick device access buttons with automatic mounting and unmounting, a fast file viewer for text and images, a history of recently accessed folders, and folder bookmarks.

            Missing "auto-skip" function in Gnome-Commander in case of "transfer problems"
            In Gnome-Commander the little pop-up window under the title of "Transfer problem" should also include a kind of "auto skip" button which would instruct the program to continue transfer, ignoring the problematic files. (Without this - which is the case right now- if you want to copy a directory which also contains a lot of files that the program can not copy for some reason, you have to press the "next" button on those pop-up windows that come up every 5 seconds, which is really annoying an tiring.)
