Light Weight File Manager?

I'm looking for something that will run in under 200k of ram, dual screen listing, copy/move/delete/New Drawer, much like a dumbed down version of DOPUS or FILER.

I don't need any robust tools, just what I listed above. I need to move and organize data visually but I'm down to 300k ram after booting because of my screen resolution (640x400 interlaced) and Cross Dos (takes almost 200k to have a dos zip disk inserted). Yes, I only have 1MB CHIP total.

Thank you for any help in locating a program.

Tried that. Didn't have the library it was asking for. Suppose I'll try and find that library later today.

Please try DirWork It is among the lightest file manager and requires no additional libraries or applications or "NPT Commander" or "CLIMate", HERE i reviewed almost all file manager used on AMiGA.

i still prefer Diskmaster - latest was 2.1c - this has some trouble with the 2000+ date.
an updated version can be found on aminet - but this one is not bug free.
zoned: DiskMaster v2.1c (Progressive Peripherals) (1991).dms

Thank you AMIGASYSTEM and emufan. I will check those out later today and read the reviews.

Much appreciated all around.

FM2.2 doesn't need any libraries to run. FM2000 is not very lightweight.

I use ABCDir in case of low memory, especially when the WB fails due to too many files to show.

Nice list. I suppose I'm going to try them all. Thank you very much everyone. I will report back on my conclusion and choice.

So far none of them work. It appears as though the least intense of them (I think it was ABCdir) needs at least 300k to run.I suppose I just have to wait until one of Kipper's boards can be purchased. I can't seem to figure out how to place an order for this. - A508IDE Fastmem with IDE (http://www.kipper2k.com/a500fastmem.html).

How long (amount of char) filename you mean ? As I remember max number of char in filename is 107. Check out dos/dos.i and structure FileInfoBlock there is a
Code:
STRUCT fib_FileName,108	; Null terminated. Max 30 chars used for now

Typically a tosec ADF filename is too much for filemaster2.2, some have suggested it might be that it is because it cant cope with newer filesystems.

Its never been a problem for me before until these tosec filenames.

I can't find that specific version. Only "new file matter lhs" from aminet and that one doesn't pass my low memory need.

FM2.2 balks at over 30-32 chars. It's not anything to do with modern filesystems.

I once had the dream of resourcing it and fixing this + a few other bugs, but the project didn't get far. I still have the .rs file somewhere on my A3000's HD. Maybe one day. :-D

With the help of Stingray we found out that the majority of the tool is in a powerpacked data block with a modified header. I guess that would be the starting point, build a version that is fully unpacked and start working from there.

Consider not using interlace mode and also, how many hard drive partitions do you have mounted? The least you have the more RAM you free up.
DirWork is TINY!
