The most fundamental feature of a file manager is its ability to let you move files around. Opus provides several ways to copy and move files from one folder to another:

  • Copy-and-paste: This is the traditional method on Windows of moving files around using the clipboard.
  • Drag-and-drop: Again, fairly standard on Windows; using the mouse to drag files from one folder to another.
  • Toolbar buttons: Several default toolbar buttons let you copy or move selected files.

Other file copying-related features include:

  • The copy queue function, which lets you queue multiple file copy operations to avoid disk thrashing or bandwidth contention.
  • Files can be renamed as they are copied, either one at a time or using wildcards.
  • When filename collisions occur, the replace dialog lets you quickly choose what you want to do.
  • Powerful features for synchronizing the contents of two folders (including remote FTP sites).
  • A filtering system that lets you selectively copy the contents of folders

Deleting files is also a part of the basic file management tool set - Opus also provides a secure delete function to securely erase data.
