How to Copy Faster in Windows

Posted by Mayank on September 5, 2013 in Windows

Slow copy speed is a drag, which no one likes. You just waste time watch the files getting copied and your computer running slow as a result. Newer version of Windows, especially Windows 8 officially does improve the speed of copy and shows some nice, slick graph, but it never left me satisfied, especially when copying over a network.

If you want to speed up your copying or if you regularly transfer large amounts of data and have to stop the process to perform some other disk-intensive task, TeraCopy might be the program you’ve been wanting.

TeraCopy is designed to copy and move files at the maximum possible speed. It skips bad files during the copying process, and then displays them at the end of the transfer so that you can see which ones need attention. A great way to get rid of the annoyances between the copy process.

TeraCopy can automatically check the copied files for errors by calculating their CRC checksum values. It also provides a lot more information about the files being copied than its Windows counterpart. TeraCopy integrates with Windows Explorer’s right-click menu and can be set as the default copy handler.

Noteworthy features of TeraCopy

  • TeraCopy uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce the seek times – thereby increasing the copy speed.
  • TeraCopy lets you pause and resume file transfer activities. Great option when you decide to start copy and change your mind when you find out how long it will take or your system performance degrades.
  • TeraCopy tries several times to recover and, in the worse case scenario, will simply skip the file, not terminating the entire transfer.
  • TeraCopy shows the failed file transfers and lets you fix the problem and recopy only the problem files.

TeraCopy Pro is a paid version of the same and has the following features:

  • Copy/move to your favorite folders.
  • Save reports as HTML and CSV files.
  • Select files with the same extension/folder.
  • Remove the selected files from the copy queue.
