Could someone please suggest a file explorer for PPC 2003 that looks exactly
(or as close as possible) to windows explorer?
thanks in advance

If it's the looks you're after, you will not find any. And that
is not without reason. It is quite something different to have
320x240 pixels to show items, or 1024x768 (or more). Pocket PCs
have a different GUI, and applications should be made according
to that GUI.

If it's the functionality you're after, the advised Resco File
Explorer IMO is the best third party file explorer out there.

Resco explorer is good, and I think a full version was recently on a UK
magazine cover disk. Look at www.handango.com/

thanks to all for the resco suggestion... it's pretty good for what I am
looking for... I just wanted something to have the tree view on one side and
the files on the other. I understand the limitations of the pda screen
compared to a monitor, it's the look and feel that I need.
