A Better Way To Copy And Move In Windows

PCWorld: A Better Way To Copy And Move In Windows

New TeraCopy Home adds useful features such as being able to pause a copy task to perform another disk-intensive process.

“When last I visited TeraCopy (the Pro version) I loved its features, but I discovered that version was not 100% stable. For a task as critical as copying and moving files, there’s no substitute for rock-solid. Happily, I had no problems with this more recent version of the free Teracopy Home and can honestly say that TeraCopy seems ready for prime time.

TeraCopy’s pause function alone is worth the download if you regularly copy large amounts of files and need to stop the process to perform another disk-intensive task. Windows only lets you cancel–not pause–which makes it difficult to ascertain exactly where you left off. You may also choose up front whether you want to overwrite all files, older ones only, skip files that already exist, or rename the file being copied to avoid overwriting the existing files. TeraCopy seemed a tad faster than Windows in my tests with a large mix of small and large files though a little slower than the Windows native routine when copying a single very large file.”
