GNU Midnight Commander – a visual file manager, licensed under GNU General Public License and therefore qualifies as Free Software. It’s a feature rich full-screen text mode application that allows you to copy, move and delete files and whole directory trees, search for files and run commands in the subshell. Internal viewer and editor are included.

Midnight Commander (mc) is based on versatile text interfaces, such as Ncurses or S-Lang, which allows it to work on a regular console, inside an X Window terminal, over SSH connections and all kinds of remote shells.

MC is a visual system shell, so all operations can be performed without entering any commands, using only the semigraphic interface. It allows you to perform file operations with the mouse, function keys (F1 – F12 on the keyboard) and the cursor. The TUI Midnight Commander is divided into two panels, each displaying files or information about them, which simplifies operations such as moving or copying files.

The application allows you to connect to servers (FTP, FISH and SMB) with access to their content in one of the selected windows; on the connected remote file system, you can perform standard operations (depending on the type of connection) – browsing, deleting and copying files or changing permissions.

The project founder is Miguel de Icaza.

Syncdocs – a proprietary sync tool which lets you sync multiple Google Drive accounts with end-to-end encryption.

Features:
– Sync any folders to Google Drive, not just the one folder Google’s client offers. These folders can be anywhere on your PC, network or even an external drive. So you have the freedom to make Google work the way you want it, and not be forced to use another folder structure.
– Better privacy and security. Sensitive materials are automatically encrypted online.
– Access all your files offline. Unlike Google’s client, all files are copied locally. This means you have a complete backup, and you can edit these files when offline. When you go online again, your changes are synced.
– Sync multiple accounts at the same time. Keep your home and work and Google Apps accounts all in sync at the same time!
– Install without Administrator permissions – powerful automated deployment scripts help you roll out and pre-configure Google Drive to your users.
– Schedule Google Drive backups – backup once a day if you want. Your Google contact list is backed up too!
– Full control over sync direction – upload, download or both
– Maintain Google access rights on Windows – files you share without edit permissions stay that way.
– Shared files are also synced – Google Drive won’t sync files that others share with you, Syncdocs lets you choose.
– Facebook, Twitter and GMail file sharing – simply click on a file or folder to share it.
