Yes, Vista is using some NTFS features that have not been used to that
extent by XP.
I'm using XYplorer since years, but not under Vista (I'm still a happy XP
user). However, I know for sure that XYplorer has many happy Vista users.
That's why I recommended it. Just try it: it's a 2MB no-install software (so
your system or registry won't be altered by it -- you can run it from a USB
stick), and you get a (almost) fully functional 30-day free trial. There's
not much to lose here.
