Neat Windows Azure Storage Tool

I love elegant software.  I knew about CloudXplorer from Clumsy Leaf for some time, but I hadn't used it for awhile because the Windows Azure MMC and MyAzureStorage.com have been all I need for storage for awhile.  Also, I have a private tool that I wrote awhile back to generate Shared Access signatures for files I want to share.

I decided to check out the progress on this tool and noticed in the change log that support for Shared Access signatures is now included.  Nice!  So far, this is the only tool* that I have seen handle Shared Access signatures in such an elegant and complete manner.  Nicely done!

Definitely a recommended tool to keep on your shortlist.

*My tool is complete, but not nearly as elegant.

Does it support for x64 ?

@Yusak Setiawan: Yes, CloudXplorer runs on 64bit just fine, we've tested it on our hosting server under Windows Server 2003 64bit. We'll "upgrade" to the fulll 64bit support (for now it's just 32-bit WOW because some GUI controls used don't support 64bit) in the future.
