With ever improving speed of computers, like the introduction of SSD and ever faster memories, with multiple core processors, I don't see the speed to be the most crucial part. For most users Windows is fast enough.
The most crucial part is in safety of copying, and the possible detection of problems flaws in copies. In this, Teracopy acts well, like CD DVD programs do, while checking the burnt product.
Anyways, it's fast, reliable, through the years I've come to trust it, and I sure think it's worth a recommendation.
One commentator noted that it "Prompts to replace files" - all I can say is that any proper copying program will do that if they recognize an attempt to copy a file with the same name. You need to rename?
I have been using this for a couple years, and now all friends and family are using it too. It's the best copy/move/replace tool I've seen.
The best feature is the checksum capability. You need to activate this in the Preferences Menu. This allows the program to automatically check that the copied file is indeed an exact duplicate.
Teracopy has been invaluable to catch those rare but potentially disastrous copy errors, where the copied file isn't an exact duplicate.
I also recommend you change the preferences to a light blue and pale yellow for the "progress bar/thermometers" so you are able to read the text better. You can also turn the audio "ding" on or off in the preferences.
I'm very impressed. When it encounters problems, it doesn't stop dead light windows normal copier, but continues copying everything it can. It will bebuzz that something's wrong. Then you can press the "cleanup" button and see a good report on what's wrong.
It will tell you if 255 characters, directories are nested too deep, and many other potential filesystem errors and problems problems.
If it finds identical file names, you can individually go through and click yes or no, or you can choose the third column which is to automatically replace everything.
This is a fantastic tool for updating large numbers of files.
This is easy to use, easy to set up, and I'm baffled any other users can't get this working for them.
As a Pro user, I couldn't be more pleased with the software and customer support.
My choice for CopyMove handler on my PC and over our LAN network.
Some minor changes I would like to see implemented, and will discuss with CodeSector.
