Utilities: Better file copying

Copying files in a Windows environment is a routine operation, where in most cases it is enough to use the system File Explorer and drag files and folders between different locations, or use a clipboard for copy / paste. For those accustomed to working from the command line, Command Prompt or PowerShell provide additional capabilities and automation of file copying. There are also additional programs in relation to system solutions allow for slightly faster operation and more copying options.

Alternate copying

TeraCopy is one of the alternative programs for copying and transferring files, with several advantages over the system File Explorer. While File Explorer infamously terminates if it encounters any error (say one of the copied files is locked or cannot be opened, the destination disk is full, the network is temporarily unavailable, etc.), TeraCopy will resume, and a copy can be retried later. remaining files.

File Explorer and copying files via the clipboard can be quite slow in the case of large amounts of data. TeraCopy optimizes copying and can finish work faster, successfully copy locked files, while preserving the original date and time on the files. Additional write checks may be included, which will slow down copying but increase data reliability, for example when working with external disks and memory cards.

The home location from which the TeraCopy program can be downloaded is www.codesector.com/teracopy. The program is available in PC and Macintosh versions, and is distributed as a complete installation or a portable version that can be started directly. The basic version of the program is free for non-commercial use and contains almost all the necessary options. There is also a commercial version of TeraCopy Pro that offers additional options for maintaining file lists, remembering favorite folders and creating reports in html and csv format.
