Does anyone remember XTree Gold? If you are like me and grew up in the 80/90’s you will remember XTree Gold. What a life saver it was, especially for people who weren’t confident in DOS. XTree Gold is one of the first GUI file managers made which runs on MS-DOS.
Did you know, it’s still alive today! You can download it in 32 or 64 bit for Windows from http://ztree.com/
It was released on April 1st 1985 and became very popular! By 1991, XTree sold over 3 million copies. Unfortunately, when Windows was released it was forgotten about. Windows Explorer took it’s place.
Before XTree Gold there was a command in DOS called TREE which displayed directories in a similar fashion. Go into cmd and type tree to have a look.
