Editors' Review

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.

"First rate copy utility."

February 02, 2011  |  By laymanj

 |  Version: FastCopy 2.06

Pros

Speedy and reliable. Most copy programs produce a highly fragmented target; FastCopy does not. Can be used as the copy/move facility for FreeCommander, etc.

Cons

Clunky user interface appears to date back to the Cretaceous period.

Summary

Works reliably and is very fast. I've abandoned a paid product in favor of FreeCopy.

"Excellent."

January 12, 2011  |  By GezzKay

 |  Version: FastCopy 2.06

Pros

Windows Explorer - 90 (Microsoft) mins est' to transfer 13 Gb across the LAN. Killed it and installed Fastcopy.
Fastcopy - 14 mins. Job done.

Cons

GUI pretty rough and ready

Summary

Minimises that sinking feeling you get when you realise you need to forklift huge quantities of data from one machine to another acros the LAN.
Would like to see something that actually moved data at close to quoted LAN rating - even Fastcopy didnt get above 14% of NIC capacity.

"Great product! Highly recommended."

December 28, 2010  |  By jaswinder_77_singh

 |  Version: FastCopy 2.06

Pros

Lots of features for the advanced users. Still the interface is very simple, uncluttered and beginner friendly.

Cons

Being an average user (though somewhat inquisitive) myself, i don't use all the features which this product supports. But i enjoy using it.

Summary

1) I have been it since version 1.93. I tried and retried many others but finally settled on this one.
2) Really fast!
3) Never betrayed me. Long path names are handled gracefully (unlike Windows built-in copy or move function. I am using Windows XP).
4) Speed control, pause supported.
5) Include/exclude filters possible (regular expressions supported)
6) Non-stop operation possibility. Errors, if any, are logged/displayed and can be taken care of later.
7) Create and save jobs
8) Lots of options like overwrite just the changed ones, etc. Saves a lot of time. Sometimes the speed seems like a magic!
9) The best thing about FastCopy is that before performing a complex or doubtful command containing filters, etc., we can press on the LISTING button which shows the files or directories which will be affected without actually performing the action. In this way, we are saved the risk of screwing up things by trying some adventurous, or doubtful filter condition(s).
10) Fast delete is also a very useful feature.
11) Option to add/remove desired commands to right click menu
12) optionally copy ACL, altstream, etc
13) Other advanced features for technical users

"Fast is more than just its name"

November 21, 2010  |  By dpdallas

 |  Version: FastCopy 2.06

Pros

Many times faster than Windows 7 copy and move or drag and drop.
A must have for anyone who works with lots of files such as MP3 or JPG

Cons

Would like it if it was even faster!

Summary

I use this program daily to move files back and forth to a USB drive. It is so much faster then the windows built-in functions.
