Preview common file formats (e.g. PDF, docx, pptx, msg, …) in the browser, delete items, move files or download items just as with Windows Explorer / Explorer View.

    This tool saved my life moving 750GB of local data to my customer’s Sharepoint environment. Good overview of uploaded files & folders and very fast tool to work with. Manual uploading should take several days, regarding the Sharepoint upload status bar.
