FreeCommander is a freeware file manager, an excellent alternative to the standard file manager from Microsoft® Windows® and also to other similar "File Managers".
The software interface is simple, friendly, clean and it features an enormous amount of features (see below - not all of them are listed). If you're looking for a free alternative, this tool might be a great choice (for example, it was named "the top pick" of 2014 by Gizmos's Freeware/TechSupportAlert) surpassing other competitors.
The current version is available only as a 32-bit version (portable also available) for Microsoft® Windows® but for a small donation, the author will allow you to download the 64-bit version - THE DETAILS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.
Note: Although other sources mentioned a "built-in" FTP client, I was unable to locate it. As far as I know, it is a feature that will be implemented in the next future versions.
