X-DCPlusPlus is a software application which provides a simple means of exchanging files with other users and talking with them, through a DC protocol.
The upper side of a portable app
Since this is the portable version of DC++, it means that you are not required to go through the installation process. Aside from that, you should know that the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to suffer any changes, and no leftovers will remain after its removal from the drive.
You should know it is possible to place the program files to an external storage device (e.g. pen drive) and thus, run X-DCPlusPlus on the fly, on any machine you have been granted access to.
The interface you are met with presents a simple and well-organized design, as it encloses a menu bar, several buttons and several tabs displaying various information. Nonetheless, using it further might prove to be a bit challenging to novice users, as some computer knowledge might be requited.
Connect to a public or private hub
As all these types of programs, you should know there is a list of public hubs you can use, yet you are required to input a name, select your Internet connection type and share some files, according to the restriction set by the hub you are trying to connect to.
View statistics and set up configurations
It is possible to connect to any user within a hub and view the items he or she has shared with just a few clicks. Moreover, you can use a search function, so as to look for a specific file or directory, view the download queue, as well as all the finished uploads and downloads.
You have access to network statistics, and from the settings panel you can choose directories to use and impose limits such as maximum number of simultaneous downloads, speed at which to drop sources and time period at which to check items.
To wrap it up, X-DCPlusPlus proves to be an efficient and well-rounded piece of software, dedicated to people interested in downloading and sharing files. Although it may not always be friendly with your system’s performance, the response time is good, and the interface is intuitive.
