Publisher's Description

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.

Glad its finally moved from Alpha to Beta. Excellent replacement for Windows Explorer copy (although there is an option to use that for copy/move operations if you really want to) Works great on Windows 10

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.

Currently ExtremeCopy and FastCopy are the fastest, both free. ExtremeCopy's GUI is better though and it integrates in Windows, so that's the best one.

1) Teracopy is free. 2) It works perfectly. 3) FastCopy's GUI looks like Jackson Pollock threw up all over it.

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.

I cant find what this application does that any good file commander like Total Commander or Speedcommander would not do as well or better.

these type of softwares like teracopy or supercopier have additional functions .other than that it has no difference no increase in speed or transfer rate .but we feel it it is more faster .i have tried both but i couldnt find any difference in speed .thats all the same

have been using it for several weeks now and I'm transferring around 92gb at a time to various external hd's.... very efficient with my windows 7. pause function is awesome, as well as which files failed to transfer. i'm not some big corporation or even business... just a regular blue collar guy. easy to download, simple to use, everything is right there in front of you. on a STOCK computer with nothing fancy it works great.

Ill give it a 1 because its ALWAYS been buggy

As always whenever i see this PAID crap appear, i suggest FastCopy:

http://ipmsg.org/tools/fastcopy.html.en

Its FREE
It works
It wont choke on large transfers like TeraCopy does, try and move say 128Gb with TeraCopy (back it up first), i did ...ONCE, not pretty.

Do NOT trust your data to this program, i learned it the hard way and since switching to FastCopy about 3 years ago i have had exactly 0 problems

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.
