Actually it would not be a clone of Total Commander but rather of the Norton Commander, which is a parent of a large family of 2-pane file managers.

##muCommander (homepage, wiki).

It's a 2-pane file manager, providing an interface, similar to those of the Norton Commander family, but in the look and feel, native to OS X. It's actually cross-platform and available for any popular OS.

muCommander is free and released under the GNU General Public License. It's written in Java and requires it to run.

###Installation on OS X:


brew cask install mucommander 

Direct download:

#Midnight commander (homepage, wiki)

A great list of file managers (not all of them are 2-pane) is available in Wikipedia: Cross-platform file managers.
