FastCopy is a program that promises to give users unprecedented control over copying and transferring files. Users whose computers habitually tie up trying to transfer files may rejoice, while others will give it nothing more than a shrug.
This freeware program has an incredibly basic display that is practically one step removed from binary code. With simple descriptions and options, users select a file they want to have copied as well as its destination. From there, a wealth of choices are bundled into the crowded screen. The speed of copy is adjustable you can include and exclude filters. There are options for ACL and Altstream also. It is almost necessary to know what these choices are in order to get the full effect of the program. While FastCopy has a Help menu, it is laden with jargon that may not be instantly understandable for new users. Our test files copied to the chosen destination quickly and efficiently, ending with a description of the transfer, tallying MBs, time spent, file totals, and the rate at which files copied.
While the program operated as promised, we didn't see a great need for it on most computers. Users who use the traditional CTRL+C macro to copy files are probably not going to get a lot out of FastCopy. However, if you copy enormous files that tend to get sluggish and cripple computer performance, this download could be the solution you have been seeking.
FastCopy will copy or delete information on your computer. It can copy or delete files with Unicode pathnames or pathnames exceeding MAX_PATH (260byte). Include or exclude filter (UNIX wildcard style) can be specified.
