TeraCopy is a compact program designed to copy and move files at the maximum possible speed, also providing you with a lot of features. It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times. Asynchronous copy speeds up file transfer between two physical hard drives. Pause and resume file transfers. In case of copy error, it will try several times and in the worse case just skips the file, not terminating the entire transfer. It can completely replace Explorer copy and move functions, allowing you work with files as usual.

    Since mid 2010 TeraCopy V 2.12 works great within my Windows XP Home Sp3 pc.
    Recently, I installed V 2.27 on an other machine with Windows XP Prof Sp3, but there was already a problem during install : machine hangs.
    After reboot I reïnstalled TeraCopy and tried to copy a few files. Again the machine freezes.
    After rebooting I deïnstalled V2.27 and switched over to V 2.12. Now the old version works smoothly.
    What causes the problem ?

    Teracopy works great. I love the way it integrates into the shell, enabling "Teracopy" and "Teramove". Granted, it slows down copying, but is actually faster if you run into errors that Windows Explorer can not handle. You can skip over the bad file and keep going. I tried the other copy programs. FastCopy is pretty good, offering a portable version that can add and remove shell extensions. It may be out of development, no updates since Feb '11. Extremecopy is pretty useless for Explorer shell (right mouse click) users. I simply can't use it without shell extensions.

    Give Teracopy a 4.5, it isn't quite perfect.

    Thanks. I just tested tera against extreme and extreme gave me a 30 mb/s boost between two hd's. Tera maxed out at 60 taking 25s for a large video file and extreme took around 14s. Only slight improvement to flash which is to be expected.

    Here is the latest: from the Installer Change Log
    -------------
    TeraCopy Change Log
    Version 2.2 RC
    Fixed: mounted volumes detection when choosing same/different devices mode.

    Version 2.2 beta 3
    Added: Option 'CardReader' to ini file.
    Specify a device name to unmount volumes instead of ejecting card reader.
    Added: Better USB devices ejection.
    Added: Option 'ForceSameDriveMode' to ini file.
    Fixed: Crush when testing md5 files.
    Fixed: Always test target folder and request admin privileges if needed.
    -------------
    I do not copy over LAN or to fancy devices like USB drives so I can not really test that but when I tell windows to copy m user files to a folder and come back half an hour later to find nothing done and a stupid Error about a locked file sitting there I know I like this applications features. So I will keep my 5 stars.... Plenty of others here voted 1 star and this application seems to always be rated above 4.

    It's not about it being the program's "fault" or not. I'd never claim TeraCopy didn't have its share of problems. It just has fewer faults than the available alternatives.

    If SuperCopier works for you, that's great! I've found it to be consistently ~20% slower than TeraCopy with large file transfers and to generally have a clunkier interface because it uses a LOT of legacy code, but I like it. I'd use it if TeraCopy didn't work fine for me and for all of my friends in the industry, but it does.

    All I'm saying is that if ANY activity is causing your wireless adapter to drop a connection, there's something wrong with your networking subsystem. There is no way TeraCopy or any other software (that doesn't interface directly with your network hardware) could cause it to drop if it wasn't already having problems, whether you were aware of these problems previously or not.

    I'm telling you that I've seen this problem before, and I've fixed this problem before. And I've done so on more than a handful of machines. If you're not interested in advice based upon this experience, you don't have to take it. I just wanted to put it out there.

    @Prospero424: It's not TeraCopy's fault? Sorry, but yes, it is. I've been using SuperCopier for the past couple months, and that application works fine. Only TeraCopy can't handle simple copy/move functions over my LAN. A long time ago, TeraCopy used to work fine for me (other than the stability issues). So I can't imagine how it's not TeraCopy's fault.

    Reviewing 2.2 Beta 2 (Sep 15, 2010)

    Great program, and these newer versions are a bit more polished than the program has been in the past.

    However, I suggest integrating it with the Explorer shell but NOT using it as the default copy handler in Windows. TeraCopy works great for large-file transfers where speed and resumption are priorities. Explorer works better for large sets of small files and interferes less with any other traffic that may be occurring on the local computer or the network you're transferring files across.

    @Plumber:

    I've seen what you're describing with TeraCopy and several other programs (sorry, I can't remember which ones) on a handful of machines I've worked on in the past. On every single one of them, it has turned out to be buggy wireless adapter drivers, and at least two out of the five or so instances of this were with Marvell-based 802.11 adapters.

    What happened with the instances I've encountered is that wireless transfers operate normally about 95% of the time, but heavy interference and/or super-heavy traffic aggravates an already existing problem, causing the adapter to drop its connection and forcing the end user to have to either reconnect to the WLAN or even disable and re-enable the adapter from within Windows or reboot. For whatever reason, normal network transfers using Explorer don't aggravate the problem like TeraCopy does, or at least not at the same rate.

    I've been able to fix this in every single instance by updating the drivers for the adapter from Windows Update or from the manufacturer's site.

    It's not really TeraCopy's fault. TeraCopy is just making a pre-existing problem manifest at an increased rate.

    I have not used the latest version of Teracopy, so I will rate it middle-of-the-road. However, my previous experience with it has been hit and miss. Sometimes it would copy the files, sometimes it wouldn't, or wouldn't completely copy--especially over the network. It was just too hit and miss, and I'm afraid that I can't support it.

    Wow, I see lots of meaningless, nonsense objections to my previous post. Let's go through them, shall we?

    "As far as copying something over a network, I have never tried that..."

    And yet here you are, criticizing me for it...

    "...but considering there are literally innumerable ways in which to do that, hfs for one, I find that complaint ridiculous."

    I don't get it. There are other ways to copy over the network, so TeraCopy is off the hook for sucking at it? TeraCopy's home page says that it "can completely replace Explorer copy and move functions, allowing you work with files as usual." As I mentioned, Windows can copy/move files over my network, so TeraCopy should also be able to.

    "And I will NEVER use shared folders."

    And... So what?

    "In some instances with tens of gb's (mb's? please) of data..."

    Again... So what? Am I supposed to be impressed with your "GBs" of data? Your comment actually brings light to why TeraCopy is so pathetic: Because I'm only copying "MBs", yet it still fails at it.

    "I had external connection issues but always knew it was my hardware and not the ap."

    I lost count of how many non sequiturs you have used. This is another one. Because in this case, it's the application, not my hardware.

    This application doesn't cut the turd, plain and simple.

    BTW, thank you for the SuperCopier recommendation. I've tried the latest beta, and what do you know--it works! Wow, what a concept. I don't have to install an HTTP file server to transfer files, I can use a utility that claims it can handle it!

    Reviewing 2.12 (Jul 15, 2010)

    I don't have stability issues with TeraCopy 2.12. Rather, it simply works very, very poorly for me, to the point of being less than useless. It's actually detrimental.

    Around 8 out of every 10 times (not an exaggeration) I try copying a ~700-MB file to my laptop, it fails in the middle of the transfer with an error stating "The specified network name is not available". I don't know why this happens. The laptop connects wirelessly and like all wireless connections, it's not perfect, but THAT'S WHY I WAS USING TERACOPY.

    Resume never, EVER works (the option is always grayed out).

    It's very important to note that after TeraCopy barfs in the middle of a file transfer, the standard Windows Copy/Move function ALWAYS works. There's a technological hurdle that TeraCopy cannot muster, and it's called "WORKING AS DESIGNED".

    Useless.

    Buggy.

    Used this on dozens of machines and never had a stability issue. My friends (who are in the same line of work) have used this on dozens of machines and never had a stability issue.

    Not saying stability issues don't exist for this software, just that they seem to be less than common.

    The TeraCopy bugtracker list appears relatively normal and is certainly no worse than most other active projects. It does kinda suck that the author doesn't offer or even link to any official support forums, though. These days, not having an open support forum is inexcusable for software you're trying to charge for.

    But now we're talking about service rather than the software itself, which is very good for transferring large files in Windows.

    If you're just gonna be transferring a bunch of small files like thumbnails, text files, Office documents, etc., then don't bother. Windows Explorer will probably do it faster and the pause/resume feature isn't so useful.

    If you're transferring multi-gigabyte files or file sets, if you want to be able to resume transfers if they're interrupted, if you want to be able to pause transfers, if you want to do automatic checksums, and if you want to do these things fast, then use TeraCopy.

    If you want to be able to manage your transfer queue (among other more advanced features), then you should buy TeraCopy and then get on their butts about offering a support forum.

    Yes, there are a couple of free alternatives out there, but as I mention below: they are both slower and have been completely abandoned by their development teams years ago.

I have NEVER had a copy problem since the program stabilized a few releases back, & I've copied large & small and every file type imaginable. The only thing that was a concern was file comments, and I have never found a single program other than explorer or TC that copied the comments with the files. I hate using TC to copy as the program is completely busy until it's done. I don't gas about the comments as I can change them to whatever I want or simply remove them. With teracopy I can copy whatever I want and while it's doing so I can move on to other things without having to wait. Just tested (using Horodruin) a 2GB folder of rar files that I copied and both were 100%. Comments are optional and are not mandatory for properly working files.

Some copies failed repeatedly to pass these checks. Upon closer examination using a difference utility, I found that indeed, the contents of the copy was altered.

    I'm so utterly sick of this utility's eternal beta status. Sick of the crashing, which doesn't occur frequently but is extremely annoying when it does happen. Sick of idiotic error messages such as "The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive" when I'm trying to simply copy a file to a UNC network drive. Sick of not being able to resume the copying of big files that I should be able to, and only HAVE TO RESUME because TeraCopy crashed on me or issued a moronic error such as the aforementioned.

    The CRC error checking is a nice touch, but underpowered. It uses the miserably-antiquated CRC-32 algorithm, which is crap. I've personally encountered a collision (i.e. two different files that gave the same hash) with CRC-32, so I don't trust it much at all anymore.

    Unfortunately, every other utility I've tried in this category is also crap.

    One of the benefits I have found to TeraCopy is the way in which it performs file copy operations to a flash drive. Much more reliable than the standard copy function built into Windows. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a new release soon.

    Well I tried it, it failed the very first time, I removed it.

    I wanted to try it some more, but it replaces the Windows default copy mechanism so I had to remove it in order to copy the failed operation above.

    I was trying to copy a 500meg+ file from hard drive to SD card when it failed. It very well may have been an SD card issue, but still the Windows default copy did fine, albeit slooow.

    I think i'll try some of the suggestions below.

    It does the work and it is portable.

    SuperCopier is far better and free, but it seems to be dead.

    Great program. I recommend it to everybody, and the free version does everything I need it to do.

    Odd thing about these 2.x betas though: if you start a TeraCopy transfer and then choose another file to copy using the context menu (right-click drag), it opens up a second instance of TeraCopy instead of simply adding the file to the transfer queue.

    Is this intentional? The stable build (1.22) doesn't do this; it queues properly.

    I've tried Supercopier, and I like it. It has a few more features for the price (free). The problem is that it's simply slower than TeraCopy. I'm talking 20% slower on every machine I've used it on. That's just not going to cut it for a utility designed basically for large-file transfers. Also, development seems to have ceased entirely in 2006.

    Problem is NEITHER supercopy NOR teracopy can copy comments from file properties. Worse yet neither can capably replace the default copy/move handler with any reliability other than locking up and/or errors in the process (from a typical windows user point of reference). junk both
    Goodsync does better than both these put together but will not replace anything.

    Supercoper blows this thing out of the water. Why?

    1) It's free AND open source. Why is that important? Because you get all of the features without a slimy price tag put on it.

    2) Portable. Unlike Teracopy/Total copy (god awful Total copy which installs itself in /WINDOWS), Supercopier is 100% portable and saves only to an INI file.

    3) FREE

    TeraCopy is an excellent software for me but I have sometimes have a problem with corrupted files. After I copy the files, the CRC doesn't match, and the files are corrupted. I notice this problem happens more frequently when I increase the buffer size when copying the files.

    I hope the developer can look into this. Otherwise, this is a must-have program.

    Why my comment has been removed ? I just give a judgment, nothing offending, I compare with other software like other reviewers did in this thread.

    It seems that this tools is based on SuperCopier delphi code, if it is true, they should at least talk about the original sources they used.

    FastCopy have not same usage as SuperCopier and TerraCopy are intended to replace the copy/paste files feature of Explorer in a transparent way. FastCopy seems to be a manual copy tools which you must start manually and set source/dest each time you want to make a copy that is far less usefull/fluent.

    TeraCopy not based on SuperCopier code or any other code. It uses pure Win32 API so it compiled in 500KB exe file. SuperCopier uses Forms, resulting in 1MB exe file.

    FastCopy has some extra features but don't forget it's in development since 2005, while TeraCopy is only 1 year old.

    Invaluable tool, especially with Vista's sometimes-flaky transfers. But why is the processor usage so high in this version? It uses almost half my processor time under both XP and Vista on different hardware even when the transfer is paused!

    Watch out with that download link below for SuperCopier 2. I tried it twice, and my antivirus quarantined it both times. Maybe it's a false positive, but I'd suggest you get it somewhere else.

    Reviewing 1.21 (Aug 12, 2007)

    Great program. This is something I've been trying to find for a long time; a useful replacement for the slow, unreliable Windows data transfer mechanism. Two additions would make it perfect:

    1. Estimated time remaining for current transfer should be better calculated. It never displays properly for me; often being blank or very, very inaccurate.

    2. A simple performance graph (time on one axis, speed on the other) for the current transfer would make at-a-glance monitoring possible.

    PS: I see no flashing anywhere.

    Great work BUT: I felt the flashing was enough. This makes it more of a burden than a help imo. One more option would be nice. Wasn't one of the great benefits the ability to minimize to taskbar (or not see it). Geez, now it's constantly in my face which is worse than explorer's default behaviour.

    Version 1.2 is out now, download it from the main web site. No problems with it so far, and it works much better than the default Windows Explorer file copy. I don't like how it's always maximized though, it should cover up other windows when you switch to them. I also don't like the "Get the Pro Version" link, looks tacky. Put it under a file menu or something.

    Reviewing 1.02 (May 26, 2007)

    Excellent program. Better than the shareware Burstcopy and essential for rapid copying of files. As other reviewers commented, the program often becomes permanently minimized to your taskbar and cannot be maximized again. That's just about the only thing wrong with it - still not enough to drop it to 4 stars since drag and drop works perfectly and you can still see progress even in the taskbar footprint.
