"Exactly as advertised"

May 18, 2009  |  By saintseminole

 |  Version: TeraCopy 1.22

Pros

Cures the problems with Windows' copy function.

Cons

The only con to Teracopy is that it wasn't included with Windows in the first place.

Summary

For years, I was frustrated with Windows' copy function. If one file jammed up, then the entire copy process would quit. If there were any hiccups, the entire process would quit. But with Teracopy, I've had no more copy & paste (or cut & paste) problems. It's a lightweight app that only runs when it needs to (when you tell it to), and stays out of the way. And it's free.

"Half the speed of Windows Explorer"

May 11, 2009  |  By nrd2000

 |  Version: TeraCopy 1.22

Pros

- free product

Cons

- does not do what it's designed to do

Summary

Unfortunately, TeraCopy does not do what it's designed to do-- at least not on my system. To see what this program delivers, I copied the same file (a single, huge file of approx. 120 GB) from one hard drive to another. In Explorer, the copy speed averaged around 50 MB/sec, while with TeraCopy it slowed down to almost exactly half that speed at around 25 MB/sec. Obviously, if the product's only function is to do something more quickly than the operating system, but then does it more slowly then it's completely useless.

"Copy accelerated somewhat, verify=real feature"

April 18, 2009  |  By kschang

 |  Version: TeraCopy 1.22

Pros

Nice interface, precise progress bar, throughput, ability to test files to verify copy

Cons

Not much acceleration noticed (I got about 20%), integration is not as tight as can be

Summary

TeraCopy claims to accelerate copying process. While it does accelerate somewhat, its benefits seems to be smaller than the claims.

I tested this on a relatively slow (2 GHz P4) PC copying 2 GB folders from HD to flash drive (while online surfing and downloading stuff). Explorer took over 10 minutes. TeraCopy took just over 8 minutes. So there is a bit of improvement. Also, it doesn't completely take over copying. What happens is when you right-drag the file a menu pops up so that you can use TeraCopy instead of regular Explorer copy.

The real pros of the program is its detailed log of the operation, as it tells you which files failed and which did not, as well as checksums of files, and ability to test/verify the copies.

Updated on Apr 18, 2009

Additional notes: the program did NOT require a restart on XP and had no effect on wallpaper. I had this on a Vista computer and don't recall having to restart either.
